On Monday, I hugged all the kids and gave the wife a kiss and bid farewell! I thought I was in luck when nobody sat next to me on the plane, but sleep was going to a be problem and God would have none of that…after all I was about to visit the Eternal City.
We landed in Rome at 7 am Rome time (1 am CST) and headed for our hotel. I couldn’t wait to get out on the town. I headed straight for Vatican City. After a brief shopping trip, I grabbed some pizza and headed to the Vatican Gardens…WOW!
When I finished the two hour tour, I headed out to parts of the City I have never visited like Piazza del Popolo and some old favorites like the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. I just love this city.
Stay with me gang, I will light a candle for you tomorrow as we get to visit the Holy Father and see St. Peter’s.
