Rome day 1

First day in Rome.
     Jet lag and no idea where to start.
We decided the best way to get an over view of the city was the famous Red  two deck Tour bus.

   Our friends would arrive tomorrow and we knew we would be visiting the top sights with them.
So here are a few shots from the upper level of the tour bus.  Hope you will come back, We vacationed for almost a month visiting Rome, Pompey, many Greek islands, Turkey, Slovenia and Croatia.

 We had such beautiful blue skies!

Loved the reflection on this picture.

Saint Peters Basilica

The Coliseum
We had a wonderful dinner at a small restaurant we found on a back street.  
I ordered lasagna but it was so different than the American style I am used to.  
A puff pastry filled with cheese and veggies.

Bob and I love to walk back streets so after the bus tour we got off and just wandered.  
A favorite thing of ours is all they unusual doors we have photographed on many of our trips.  
Here are two from Rome.

The Coliseum would be a place to behold!!!To be where the Christians suffered for their faith still standing today is remarkable. NO that doesn't look anything like lasagna. All the streets are gorgeous.

Thank you for visiting my blog so that I could visit you back! I went to Italy on my honeymoon seventeen years ago. We are trying to get back there! We visited all the large cities and next time around we want to go back to Sorrento and then the Tuscany area.

Thanks for the nice comment you left on my Dali/Sorrento post. Wish I could have had time to travel to Rome during my trip but it was a bit to far away!

Debbie, I was so happy to read your comment today. Time has taken it's toll on visiting as much as I would like.

Your trip is so amazing. How wonderful for you both. Meeting up with friends is a special treat as well. Your photos of the awesome places you have been are a welcome sight. Maybe one day we will see them too.
Enjoy your trip and share some more of your photos soon. The blue skies are a blessing when on a trip like yours.
xo, Jeanne

Happy Blue Monday, Debbie.

I would love to visit Italy. So many wonderful gardens. I like your inclusion of some ancient doors, the kind of thing you are not likely to see in the travelogs. The little details are sometimes what sticks with us.

LV said...

As the saying goes, when in Rome do as the Romans do. I think it is wonderful you can travel the world and see so many interesting places. Just be careful and enjoy it for me too.

Jenn said...

Love Italy, enjoyed Rome. Your photos are lovely and I am looking forward to read about your trip.

Laura said...

Beautiful series, thanks for taking us on vacation with you through your photos!

What a great post Debbie,
You took me right back to my honeymoon in Rome over 34 years ago.
Yes, I was a child bride of only 19 years old ;D
Fantastic photographs.
Thanks for taking me back :D

Hi Debbie! What terrific photos. I have never been to Rome but I sure am enjoying your tour. Have a glorious week. That lasagna sure is different. Happy Blue Monday.
