Well here we are in bustling Rome. Ancient monuments everywhere, delicious gelati and great pasta! Lanes and hapy people with lots of bikes and apparently 1000 traffic accidents a year! Scored with the Roma Pass - missed an hour or more of a queue to get into the Colosseum as you can get in on one side - no one tells you this but a guide touting for business said we didn't need to queue for tickets. It was amazing in there. the audio guide was really useful. We tried to go to the Vatican museum and Sistine chapel today but after walking for 5 minutes and still not finding the end of the queue we gave up. Can't stand that long! So we went to the Pantheon and plazzas and the round prison the popes used to hide from their enemies. All great. Lots of fountains and you walk down little lane ways which suddenly open into lovely plazas. The trains are booked but now have decided to cut oiut Venice we'll go to Florence one extra day and then on to Vernazza. So til our next commjunication - ciaou and grazia! Jayne and Kevinxxx
