2006 Trip - Italy - Rome - Borghese

Friday 5-12-06

After our Vatican Tour, we had to hustle our butts over to the Borghese Museum where we had reservations for the 1 - 3 time slot. Only 360 people are allowed to enter in each time slot, so there was room to move around.

Dinner that night at a little restaurant down the street from our hotel - Est Est Est. They had a singing guitar player which was fun. We each had an antipasto, and Bill had lamb and I had veal - 2 half litres of house wine for 68E.

Sad to leave Hotel Diana after breakfast, but we made a reservation to stay the night before our flight home on 5-29-06.

Arrivederci, Franco!

Walked with our bags to Termini Station to train to Florence. We had used the ticket machine the day before - it was pretty easy.

The museum and the gardens are outstanding. I’m enjoying reading about your 2006 trip. Looking forward to Florence.

I LOVE the Borghese gallery, and the park itself is great for walking/biking and just laying around watching life goes by.

Beautiful pictures, Nancy. We loved the Borghese Gallery.

I need to return to the Borghese Gallery one of these days. Went once while jetlagged. I am very behind on your blog but want time when I can sit and enjoy your trip reports. I am saving your posts for next week when I am on vacation. Looking forward to reading about your trip :)

I haven't been to the Borghese yet - it's high on my wish list. Enjoyed this post!
