Marc and I took our first trip to Rome in November of 2005. It was sort of a belated honeymoon. We were there for a week and saw most of the tourist destinations, since this was my first trip to Rome. Our hotel was Capo D'Africa, about a 5 minute walk from the Colosseum. We enjoyed our stay...I highly recommend it.
Rome was everything I had imagined! We walked all over the city...I even walked holes in my socks on the last day. Everything was interesting...even the trash cans were works of art! Marc took this night picture of the Colosseum.
This next picture is something that intrigued me. I'm not sure what it's called, but it was on the side of a church. You could walk up, drop in a coin, light a candle and say a prayer for someone. They are all over the city. I thought they were beautiful. My grandmother would have loved this.
Of course, we ate well all week and managed to get in a little shopping, too.
I made sure to toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain, so I can be sure to return.
I LOVE ROME!
