Did I mention that it is Africa hot in the afternoon.

The tour bus picked us up st St Peter’s square to take us to the Colosseum. We walked past the Arch.

Next stop the Capitoline where many couples go for their civil wedding ceremonies.

This couple wouldn’t move, so I took the picture anyway.

We had dinner at the Hotels and the Friars who own the hotel fixed a wonderful dinner. Birra, vino and two types pasta. I forgot to take a picture of the main course and desert.

We met he rest of our group after dinner and took a bus ride around Roma at night. On the way Chris, our tour director had the driver, Filippo, stop at St Peter’s square for a great night time shot of the Basilica.
