MONDAY: Colosseum and Roman Forum
|And they're off to Rome! 3 hours by high speed train |
from Milan to Rome.
|Looks like the Palentine Hill|
|the monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, |
personally my favorite building in Rome!!
|Roman guard on a cell phone? Isn't that against protocol?|
TUESDAY: Vatican Museum
|St Peters Basilica|
|The Vatican Museum is like a museum in a museum... |
the building itself is an amazing palace that is extraordinary on its own!
|Mosaic flooring in the museum|
|one of the many elaborate ceilings|
|The ancient Egypt exhibit is great!|
statues of goats in there- Josh LOVED that when we went in July!
|A true American, Mike even had a cheeseburger in Rome! |
His stomach was craving comfort food at that point, he wasn't feeling so great.
WEDNESDAY: Castello San Angelo, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, Pantheon
|Castello San Angelo|
|When in Rome, drink the free water!|
|Gotta love the Grand Dink!! (one of the scooters they saw) |
Josh's uncle Craig would appreciate this!!
