Last one! :-)

 


This is part two of our tour of Rome, Italy. Please see yesterday's update for part one.

Part two of our tour continued by exploring the Rome of the Emperors, the Roman Forum, the Colosseum and the Mouth of Truth.

Then we took a panoramic drive past the Circus Maximus, the Palatine Hill and the Baths of Caracalla. We visited the Pantheon, the best conserved monument of Ancient Rome as well as the nearby Santa Maria Sopra Minerva housing Michelangelo's "Risen Christ".

We continued with a stroll through Baroque and Renaissance Rome: from piazza Navona through the narrow streets of Antiques Row to Campo dei Fiori and Piazza Farnese. We saw the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, Capitol Hill and Piazza del Popolo.

We walked through the narrow streets admiring statues, fountains and the city center of Rome full of nice shops where we bought a few souvenirs of the Eternal City. By the time we drove back to the ship, we were exhausted and ready to relax. What an awesome day in Rome!

We will be visiting Nice, France tomorrow. Check back later for more from Europe.
