We made it to Rome after countless hours on the plane. We ended up spending a lot of fun time in the airport in Amsterdam, and made it to Roma with just enough time to have dinner and drinks at the hotel ristorante. They hailed us a cab the following morning (a Mercedes) and the driver took us to our next destination and gave us a basic course in Italiano.
Then it was off to the Colosseum and we had a great time with several picture opportunities. Afterward, we did some streetwalking and soaked in the scene plus going to Capital Hill and the Roman Forum.
We made it back to the hotel via Metro and then Adam asked for a recommendation to a local establishment for dinner. We were directed to "La Barca" which was ever-so-friendly and the food was excellente!
Now we're back - and I'm blogging - and we're not exactly sober, but what the heck. ;) Tomorrow we're hitting the Vatican for some good ol' reformation. *heh*
