Today was our last day in Rome, so we decided to see as much as we could before the day ended.
It is beyond imagination how much time and energy the artisans and others had put forth to design, create, and erect these masterpieces. Truly something to see at least once in your lifetime!
Next we stopped for a quick espresso doppio (double-shot) to re-energize ourselves for the remainder of the afternoon.
We moved on to see the Trevi Fountain, where Jo and I threw coins in like the rest of the tourists do. The place was slammed with so many tourists, and it even has a Benetton outlet right in front of it! LOL
Finally, we set off to see the famed ancient ruins of Rome...namely...
the Colosseum and the Forum.
Not as impressive as St. Peter's, but still something that we appreciated as it is not so often that one gets to sit amongst the
After a long day, we sat down to a dinner at one of the piazza's of Rome.
The spaghetti carbonara(egg and prosciutto), and the
spaghetti with clams at the Taverna del Corso were delicious!
Tomorrow we check out of the Julius Caesar B&B, leave Rome, and move on to Sorrento in the Southern region of Campania!
