May 2- Flight to Rome via JFK-
We landed in Rome in the rain. We landed away from a terminal and got to walk down the stairs and take a bus to the terminal. I could tell by the planes around us that we were on an adventure and no longer in Kansas.
Rome in Limo You can do your own tour OR they have tour sharing (more about that later). DO NOT drive in Rome. Wildest driving we've ever seen! Leave it to the experts. Here is Franco-
Monument of Vittorio Emanuele II in Piazza Venezia
We moved onto the Pantheon.
Onto Trevi Fountain passing a man dressed like a Roman soldier on the way-
Ready for lunch just outside of the Vatican
Onto the Vatican!
So we ended the tour here. The cost- 360 euro plus 150 euro for the Vatican guide. Lunch was about 30 euro . We also paid entrance fees to the Vatican 16 euro pp and Colosseum 12 euro pp.
Our hotel was on Marriott points, but it was a bit away from downtown Rome, closer to the Vatican- but free! Courtyard Marriott Rome
