Pizza and Gelato
We started our long-awaited vacation in Rome and managed to walk a mere 18, 798 steps, on our first ½ day. The plane landed before noon and rooms weren’t ready until 1 p.m., so off we hiked to explore around the Vatican. Right away it became apparent that I would not be the navigator as I managed to take the four us on the “long and scenic” route around the outside perimeter of the Vatican! Well, it got our circulation going after the 12-hour plane flight! We found our first gelato stop and made it back to the hotel in time to shower and rest before heading out to find dinner. Pizza along the Tiber River was a great way to end our first Italian experience.
