more fun

So yesterday we toured the Colosseum plus the Forum and assorted churches: San Giovanni in Laterano and Santa Maria Maggiore…found pizza in a little place along one of the streets and most excellent chocolate gelato…

Today was the Vatican Museum — WOW! It puts the Prado in Madrid to shame, which had put the Louvre in Paris to shame. The Sistine Chapel is just gorgeous; hard to believe one person did so much painting. But there were plenty of other wonderful surprises such as the collection of Raphael’s frescoes and the various Caravaggio and da Vinci, not to mention numerous Roman and Greek statues…

And then dinner to die for at Perilli in Prati with the best tirimisù I’ve ever had…
