Roma…pope rings, collect them all in a happy meal

Photo One: This was our first train ride of many in Italy. We took it from the airport to Roma Termini, the city center.


Photo Two: Here is the Arc de Constantine.


Photo Three: The traditional jumping picture by anything important, in this case the Colosseum.


Photo Four: Here is the Trevi Fountain. Hopefully we will come back to Rome and our wishes will come true.


Photo Five: Here is St. Peter’s Basilica.


Photo Six: Here is the most delicious gelato we found. Nutella was the best.


Photo Seven: Here are pretty Italian street Christmas lights.



It is nearly impossible to get on the Rome Metro system and it is only 2 lines.

No stops are clearly labeled or announced on any public transportation.

The vendors are no where near as pushy as in Istanbul or Egypt.

Less people speak english than we anticipated… but it is fun to watch mom try and have a friendly conversation anyways.

There are very few stray animals.
