Rome 3

After waking up the next day we decided to have breakfast from the hotel. I have never seen this many varieties in any other hotels! We had our stomachs fullI had bread, cereal, fruits etc etc. Ate a lot so we could last till we find a good restaurant to have lunch. then we started walking. Going through the city, seeing all those wonderful ancient structures was a wonderful experience. Kept on walking and reached PANTHEON.It used to be a place of worship where all the Roman gods were worshipped. Later when the Christians came it became a Bascilica. IMPRESSIVE.
We felt like we were walking through the streets of Trivandrum. Did not feel we were in a foreign country at all. Didn’t feel tired also, the weather was so nice. We reached the Trevy fountain. I think we have seen this place in a lot of movies. From there we walked further ahead and found an Indian restaurant. Had our lunch from there.
From there we went to see the Spanish steps. It was beautiful to watch the city from the top of all those steps. But it was a long climb to reach the top. Then we walked again till we reached a street that has only shops on both sides. Especially jewelleries. Beautiful ones. I didn’t want to leave that placebut had to as it started to rain slowly. We started our walk back to the hotel. Then went to that same restaurant we went last night to have pizza againFirst full day in Rome was very good. But the next day we had to get up earlier as we were going with a tour group to Vatican and Catacombs’. I hate getting up early any day. But then had no choice.
