Roman holiday!

Rome wasn't built in a day, and you sure can't see it all in 24 hours. But, that didn't stop us from trying! Emboldened by our early check-in, we took off on a spontaneous, unplanned sight-seeing trip via subway and foot.  The mild spring day featured enough cloud cover to make the colors in my photographs really pop.  And while the lines at the Vatican discouraged us (we'll try again tomorrow), the rest of the city (and people watching) were sublime. Enjoy....

Getting ready to shop on Via del Babuino.
