Oh, so sad! My last day in Rome!
As usual, I stayed in the room while Ray and Jamie and Anthony went out touring. They saw the Colloseo and met me for lunch. Boy was it hot! Just sitting out at lunch, under the shade, was making us all sweat.
After lunch we all strolled up to the Fontana di Trevi. I told Jamie that the Trevi Fountain is the most beautiful thing in Rome - and as soon as she saw it, she agreed completely! We pushed our way through the crowded chaos, settled by the water, took pictures and threw our pennies into the fountain. As is customary, you throw the pennies into the fountain over your shoulder wishing for a return to Rome.. Of course you know my wishes was extra concentrated.. I was tempted to through a few hundred Euro in, if only that would work!
After lunch, Jamie and Ray and Anthony went to see the Pantheon and the Spanish Steps while I returned to the hotel to meet up with Melanie for some more relaxing-by-the-pool time. Eventually Anthony and Jamie joined us and we spent most of the evening basking in the sun, drinking Pinot Grigio and snacking. Totally the life!
Finally we went out for our last dinner in Roma. Wandered over by the Colloseo and met up with Dario. Everyone was starving, as is our trend, and so we quickly found a spot. Had a wealth of food, chatted a lot more (I think I spent the whole time talking to Dario - surprise!) and then headed back home. A long late night walk - everyone exhausted!
Now it is Sunday morning and Jamie and I are off to Capri! It’s a long journey so wish us luck!
