After lunch and a short stroll, we head back to the apartment to nap away some of our jet lag and prepare for the night's activities. Tonight we're going across town to the Campo dei Fiori where we'll meet up with Ettore of Antica Tours for our "Rome in a Glass" wine and food tour. This excellent and informative tour takes us to 3 wine bars in various sections of Rome, starting near the Campo dei Fiori and ending in Trastevere, where we sample various wines and some of the "finger foods" that go well with them
The rain has stopped and from our ending point in Trastevere, we begin our stroll back to the apartment. We walk along the Tiber, then near the Roman Forum, around the Palatine Hill, along the Circus Maximus, and then past the Arch of Constantine and lastly the Colosseum. We finally reach the apartment and wearily head off to bed. It has been a long, but very pleasant day. We are happy and excited to be back in Rome among the sights, sounds, and tastes of this special city!
