Go to Rome! Don't wait..go any time, stay anywhere
"Pope John Paul ll"
We got there on a Tuesday afternoon and had to sleep. On Wednesday morning we all went to the Vatican. The hotel we stayed at Hotel Alessandrino was near St Peter's Basilica. We walked down to see the Pope. We heard he holds an audience every Wednesday morning from his balcony. We got there early so went inside the Basilica to see the architecture, artwork, and statues. When we got inside we noticed areas that were roped off and figured out that he was going to come here, not wave from the balcony. When he appeared I got this picture.
"The Castle of The Angel"
This fortress is also known as Hadrian's tomb. It also was within walking distance of our hotel. Right by the castle are 2 bridges. They have huge statues of angels along them. They are beautiful. The city must have just cleaned them, they gleamed in the dusk. Here's a pic.
"B I G doors, little cars"
Too funny. I took a bunch of pics of these big/gigantic doors next to the little Smart car made by Swatch! Like I said before we walked pretty much everywhere. Yes, my feet hurt, but there's nothing like walking a city to know where stuff is, like the Trevi fountain, Piazza Navona, The Pathenon, Spanish Steps, and loads of Roman citizens!
Here's a great pic.
