Today was a lot of walking. I got up early and went to St. Peter's Basilica, a short walk from the hostel. I had to wait in line for security screenings, but it was worth it. From there I headed to Castel Sant' Angelo, which I got into for free. Next, I went to the Plazza del Popolo, where the 155th Anniversary of the founding of the Roman police was occuring. I then tried to head back to the hostel for a short break, as I was really exhausted from the walking and not having been around 80 degree temps for quite some time. Unfortunately the hostel was closed for cleaning, so I took the metro line to to Plazza Barberini. There I took pictures of the Fountana del Tritone. I then walked to the Plazza della Repubblica, taking pictures of the massive fountain there, as well as touring Santa Maria degli Angeli (a basilica). From there I made my way to the Fountana de Trevi, first stopping at the Plazza del Quirinale where I saw something that may have been a changing of the guard. The Trevi fountain was massive and very cool looking, however it was really crowded
