When in Rome....

Today was a bonus day.  Today we were not with the tour.  We could go wherever we wanted, whenever we wanted.  We slept in.

We finally got moving around noon, mainly because we had to check out of the hotel.  The hotel that we were in the last couple of nights was very nice, but waaaay on the outskirts of the city and not remotely close to anything.  Tonight we are staying at hotel right in the center of the city.  Thank you for the great rate.

We got settled into the hotel and headed out on the town around 2:30.  We decided to spend our afternoon at the Forum.

It was really amazing to be able to walk around history.  We also finally had nice weather, and the views from the hilltop were breathtaking.

We then strolled around some gorgeous gardens

More sightseeing and enjoying the streets of Rome....

We then headed to the Pantheon and had dinner on the square - so romantic!

On our leisurely stroll back to our hotel we stopped once for wine and ended the evening with some prosecco.

Today was my second favorite day.
