…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?

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!
