We got into Rome late on the evening of the 13th, and did a quick drive-by on the Trevi Fountain after we checked into the apartment.
An early start with a guided tour of the Colosseum and then the Roman Forums took us through the afternoon, followed by a late visit to the Pantheon and then Piazza Navona at sunset.
Quite a whirlwind, but when in Rome…

I can only imagine what this looked like during it’s heyday

Jaywalking in downtown Rome is not for the faint of heart.
