We've made it back from our Sicily trip. But before we even made it to Sicily, we went to Rome first. I had to do a little bit of research there and also we met Jess and Chad, our friends from California. So here are some highlights from the Roman section of our Sicily trip.
A pleasant walk by the Palatine Hill, where the emperors lived.
A fifth-century church.
Some good American time with our friends. Chad's really excited that we're at a McDonald's.
The requisite excursion to the Colosseum.
Some refreshment from a local fountain.
And a stroll through the Forum, with yet another view of the Palatine palaces in the background.
It was a short trip to the capitol of the ancient world, but very enjoyable! Next stop, Siracusa. . .
