From Holland we travelled on to Rome. We had booked an apartment close to the Colliseum and were able to walk just about anywhere. On the first day we scouted out the neighbourhood and visited several most amazing churches. It is an amazing site to see all these beautiful historical buildings. They are very strict about dress code and in several we were asked to cover up. Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore was 3 minutes from our apartment. As you can see taking confession is hard work!
Basilica di San  Giovanni in Laterna was not far by bus. From there we wandered over to the area of the Colliseum. So much history and so much beauty. Most of the time we were just in awe with everything we saw. The rest we were busy eating pizza and pasta. and drinking sangria. All this walking does make you tired.....
