ITALY: "Prepare for the emotion!" pt. 1

A month overdue, I know, but here is Part I of my Italian Adventure...

Dad and I flew together on Saturday, May 22, and arrived in Rome the next day.
The view from the plane on our descent to Aeroporto Leonardo da Vinci di Fiumicino.

We took the Leonardo Express from the airport to Stazione di Roma Termini, which is the main train station in Rome, which also happened to be about a block from our hotel. We made quick work of figuring out the train and bus systems, and by the end of the week we were quite proficient.


First day of touring:
The Roman Forum









The Colosseum






The Spanish Steps





The Trevi Fountain












throwing a coin into the fountain to ensure a return visit
