Saturday 5th April – Rome Day 1

Started the day off on the Hop on Hop off tour which circled the city and took in all the sights. This took about two hours and we stayed on until we the bus was back around to Colosseum before we alighted for a walk around this massive structure. After a walk around we caught the next bus to the capital area and we tackled all the steps to get to the top. I lost count but I know there were a lot. Great views of the city from here and I was able to get some good photos. Of course what goes up must come down so down we came slowly, of course had to keep stopping to check out the vistas ( that was my excuse anyway). We boarded the bus again to head around to the Spanish Steps (Jen I found the gloves shop) and Trevi Fountain and then we walked all the way home….With many stops for me to read the map and make sure we were headed homeward. We were all whacked when we eventually staggered back in to our hotel. We did manage to struggle up the street to a small family run Italian restaurant for dinner , home at 8 and all asleep by 20 past 8.
