Rome

Out of the 3 cities my sister and I visited in Italy, Rome was probably my favorite.  We were only there 3 days, and that was just not enough time.  We were able to see a lot of the main touristy sites, and we took our time strolling through the beautiful streets.  Sometimes just walking aimlessly, without photographing every moment, is when you really start to feel and see what the city is like.

On such a walk we happen to run into the 17th century Fontana de Tritone, by Bernini.  Here Triton blows his trumpet, above the waters, to command the waves. One of the 1st sites we saw, was also by accident.  The Trevi Fountain was on our list of places to visit, and it happened to be right around the corner from our hotel.  On a more deliberate walk, we headed to the Spanish Steps.  We climbed the 135 steps, just as many did before us, spanning almost 300 years.  It is so easy to forget how young the US is, as a country, compared to the rest of the world. Every time I look at these pictures, I am in awe of how amazing these historic architectural and sculpted wonders are.
