All Roads Lead To Rome!



Day 23 - Rome

Rome

Saturday, 21 May 2011
Even though our tour ended we still had another full day and a half before we were to leave Rome.
We used this time to explore a few places on foot. We weren't up to any local tours however because Jason was developing a very bad head cold, not nice, but he soldiered on!
Here ends this part of our holiday in 2011! Look forward to more of 2011 after I've sallied forth with our current trip, 2012, stay tuned for the splendor of Spain, the pleasures of Portugal and the magique of Morocco, followed by une fabulaire Francais!
