When in Rome......

We recently had our first holiday in Europe. Rome was our first port of call. We spent a few days in Roma and naturally did the touristy things like St. Peters Square, The Vatican Museums,  and The Colosseum, Here are a few pics I took of busy Rome.  WARNING: Do NOT repeat NOT try to drive in Rome.....they are very polite...but...very crazy drivers. Having said that I did not see one accident.  We used the trains and the hop-on, hop-off buses. The buses were great, we enjoyed sitting back and enjoying the view for the first round, highlighting our map for spots where we wanted a closer look. Round 2 we jumped off at our highlights and investigated further. When finished hopped back on and went to the next highlight. HINT: Buy your tickets directly from the buses, it's a little bit cheaper than the tourist outlets.

Here's our highlights of Rome....enjoy.
