Roman Holiday: Day 1

A loooooong day of travel. Tuscon to Denver. Four hour layover. Denver to Munich. Three hour layover. Munich to Rome. About 24 hours of total travel time.

Our layover in Frankfurt:

Very tired.

But on to Rome. We arrived at the airport. Retrieved our luggage. Bought a bus ticket to get to Rome. Waited for the bus. Fought to get on the bus. Rode the bus for 45 minutes to the Termini. Took the metro to our stop. Walked 10 minutes (with luggage!) to our place. Met our host, Giovanni. Settled in. Left to explore!

First we ate. SO HUNGRY! We really didn’t know where to eat, so it was a gamble. We lucked out!


Then we went to the Fontana de Trevi. It was so beautiful at night!!

If you toss a coin in you are ensured to return to Rome. Done.

Then we found the Spanish Steps and Triniti dei Monti. Very cool at night, also!

We found our way back to a metro station, and called it a night.
