Rome holiday highlights

Got back from our almost 2 week Rome vacation last night. Had an excellent time while we were there. Just a few highlights of the trip while I'm thinking about them.

  • My first trans-Atlantic flight
  • Hotel La Scaletta - great place to stay at the beach. Easy trip in to Rome on the Roma-Lido metro line.
  • Seeing St. Peter's Square/Oval and the four Papal basilicas (St Paul Outside the Walls, St Mary Major, St John Lateran, St Peter)
  • Sunday Angelus where the Pope wishes you a good lunch at the end
  • The usual touristy sites
    • The Pantheon
    • Roman Coliseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill
    • Trevi Fountain
    • Campo de' Fiori
    • Piazza del Popolo
  • Scavi tour and climbing the dome at St Peter's Basilica
  • Walking through Villa Borghese
  • Fountains
  • Gelato
