Roamin' Holiday

We continued our tour of Rome on foot with long walk through Trastevere, somehow missing the trendy parts and only seeing the more rundown and questionable area along the river...oh, well, now we have an excuse to come and back and see if we can discover the charm of this area that we have only read about and not seen!!!

From there we walked over to the Isola Tiberina and then towards the Bocca della Verita, the mouth of truth. We took turns inserting our hand into the mouth and we both still have all our fingers!!!!We had a long walk to the Arch of Constantine and the Collosseum, and when we saw the lineups to get into the collosseum we were glad we had visited it last time. We strolled along the Roman ruins, watched the crazy traffic at Piazza Venezia and then walked to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona.

Rome is a wonderful city but we are ready to head for the hill towns of Tuscany tomorrow.
