ROME- Day 1

Tiber River

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 rome-pizzaheading out to find dinner. Pizza along the Tiber River was a great way to end our first Italian experience.
