…Do as the Romans Do!

Romans seem to do a lot of walking. For my second day in the city I planned to do as the Romans do, and ended up leaving ten miles of sneaker rubber on the sidewalks of Rome. Make no mistake: at least a third of that was walking in circles! Rome isn’t an easy city to figure out by any means. But the rewards are worth it! This place was just a random sculpture shop, in case you wanted to bring one home in your suitcase?

And speaking of random, ruins were everywhere. Cats were welcome in this particular one. If you look closely you’ll spot a kitty or two:

I’m quite sure I wasted about two miles of walking in search of the Pantheon, but I couldn’t leave Rome without seeing it! The Pantheon is said to be the finest preserved Roman structure in the city.

Stay tuned for Pompeii!
