Rome Wasn't Built in a Day

and I wouldn't try to see it all in a day either. Rome, Italy has many famous landmarks to visit. The colosseum the Forum,
The Circus where the chariot races were held.
Vatican City where St. Peter's Basillica is located. The Vittorio Emanuele Monument where the tomb of the unknown soldier is buried. It is commonly called the Wedding Cake. It is also on the Piazza Venezia where four major streets pass through. This is the Piazza that you see Tiffany bopping through and it was around here that she gets her famous short do cut in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's. Other places to visit include the seven hills of Rome: the Capitaline, Aventine, Palatine, Esquiline, Caelian, Quirinal, Viminal. The famous Keyhole of Rome that you can look through and get a picture perfect frame of the dome of St. Peter's Basillica, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. Museums to visit include the Borghese Gallery and the Museo Nazionale Romano. And of course there are many great places to get a cappicino and some tasty italian ice.

Check back for more travelog posts to include visits to destinations in Italy like Pompeii, Florence and Venice. Other European countries such as Germany, Switzerland, Amsterdam, Austria and Paris. Then we'll move on to Africa, Wales, England and Ireland and back to the US for Alaska by sea.
