Rome - Roaming around Rome

On our first day in Rome we covered a lot of ground and have walked many kilometres (that cancels out the wonderful pastries we are enjoying). After a light breakfast in our room we had a cup of "heart starter" coffee and hit the road! Colosseum, parts of the Forum, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, a Roman Pizza for lunch, exquisite gelato, a couple of really old churches - and more.

The sky was generally overcast and we had some light drizzle but occasionally blue sky broke through.

After dark we went out to see some lights - St Peter's basilica, Castle St Angelo and bridge, Trevi Fountain and the Colosseum. A long but rewarding day.
