Rome is a city I have visited plenty of times before, and it was so nice to just arrive today and be able to take our time and walk around and have a very long, very late lunch (yay for restaurants in Rome staying open all afternoon!).
The differences since the last time I was here?
There are a million more tourists, and they now have the army out in the streets because of the fear of Islamic extremism. Oh – and the horrid McDonald’s opposite the Pantheon has finally shut (last picture)!
The first picture is our view. I hope I will take some better pictures soon.
