A Trip To Rome

I was lucky enough to go to Rome recently. It's a beautiful place and I thought I'd share some photos with you:


Pizza - of course








St Peter's Square inside The Vatican




In the photo below, you can see a white gazebo. The person in white sitting in the shade is the Pope! I was very surprised, and delighted, to see him


The amazing interior of one of the museums at The Vatican





Our apartment was at the side of these steps. The wall at the top is the outside of the Vatican City and we could hear the bells ringing out every 15 minutes.


The Coliseum - the floor has been exposed to show the tunnels underneath where unfortunate people/victims would wait



The Spanish Steps and The Trevi Fountain (I threw 20p in)




Ancient ruins where it's said Julius Caesar died. It's now a cat sanctuary. We went inside and saw the 130 rescued cats who are now well looked after. They were mainly inside when these photos were taken but we saw the odd one prowling around.



Pompeii! With Mount Vesuvius in the background in the last photo







There are amazing site wherever you go in Rome - here are some more











I had an amazing time and had more than my fair share of pizza and gelato. As the saying goes, 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do.' And I did.
