Day 3

On the third day in Rome we toured around a bit. We started out at the Spanish steps and walked from there to a little market with old prints and books. Pricey but just amazing old beauties! From there we walked over to the Pantheon where there was a free concert. A nice surprise. Piazza Navona is near by and it is just a great neighbourhood. Notice the Papal hat and the keys to heaven?
In the afternoon we went to the ancient baths. This is a very large complex that was used to relax and meet people and socialize. Kind of like the modern day spa! It was hot and throughout Rome there are fountains that are clean and great if you want to quench your thirst with some cold water. After a little rest we took the bus to the part of town called Ancient Rome. Ruins that are 5 to 6000 year old. Unbelievable. They surround Piazza Venezia , a central square in Rome where one can spend hours! Another wonderful day!
