Dad wants pictures, I’ll give him pictures!

So I’ve been in Rome for a little less than a week now and done TONS of exploring! We walk probably 5+ miles everyday, but it never gets old because there’s just so much to see here!

I’m going to share some of the sights I’ve seen with ya. It’s been VERY hot and humid during the days, so most of my exploring has been done after dark, and let me tell you–Rome at night is astounding. I wish you all could come and see it for yourselves.

The Spanish steps in Piazza di Spagna. There are 135 steps! (Haven't climbed them yet)

Trevi Fountain--Maybe one of my favorites thus far. Might be one of the newer ones too, done in the 1700s. Always hundreds of people here.

A bouquet of roses given to me by a lovely Italian named Fabio maybe? Or was it Paolo. How do you like that, Dad?! :)

A little boy playing Hide and Seek with his little sister in the Pantheon... How cool would that be.

My absolute favorite picture thus far. This is the Pantheon at night, with the full moon. Amazing.
