We walked to the Museo Nazionale Di Castle Sant' Angelo.
I cannot stop taking pictures of the architecture. The wood, the bricks, the mortar, the paintings, the marble, the statues...if they could talk!
Theresa and I went all the way to the top of the castle. Mom and Dad waited on us
After the castle we walked forever trying to find Piazza Navona. It's supposed to be a happening place, but we never found it. We did find a place to eat and had a wonderful dinner which included bread, brushetta, spaghetti with bacon and cheese, an espresso and biscotti for $8.00! We ordered 1/2 litre of red wine for $5.50. Everyone eats outside here. I love it. I still cannot stop taking pictures of the cobblestone streets, the architecgture, etc. Except for the fast driving, everything else is slow here. So, after eating we continued the hunt for the piazza and did some shopping. We finally decided it was time to come home (to hotel). Well we did real well until...we got lost. Finally, I asked a bus driver who was taking a break how do we get to Star Michelangelo hotel. "You have to take.....ummmmmm.....ramp....ummmmm.....tunnelll..."Well we were afraid to take tunnel. Too dark (it was 8:00 pm) no sidewalks and we didn't know the area. We. are. in. another. country! So we backtracked. Dad and Mom are exhausted and hurting. But finally, at 9:00 pm, we arrive back at our hotel. We all went to the bar for a glass of vino and we are now going to bed. Buenos Aires, I think!
after a few minutes
Oh my Gosh I just discovered something I have to tell Dave. They have a bathroom light switch right beside the bed. you don't have to get out of bed to turn the bathroom light on.
People we encountered on the way to the castle.
Pictures inside the castle
This is supposed to be the most beautiful bridge in the world. It was beautiful to us, because we always knew if we could find it, we could find our way back to our hotel! You'll see several pictures of it. I think we were on it daily.
Mother, Put those down! tsk tsk, they act like children!
I love the color of this door!
Views from the top of the castle
Cindy & Theresa at the top
We discovered a restaurant on the top floor, but Mom & Dad were at the bottom!
And headed to the other side of the bridge.
Some of the streets of Rome
Remember...it was a looong, hot, two days with only two hours of sleep.
