Rome, Italy

We just returned from spending the past two weeks in Italy. Wow- what an amazing trip we had. Our first stop was Rome. They were having record heat while we were there- 95 degrees and humid. It definately reminded me of Minnesota in late July and August. While we were thankful for the sunshine we had- it was VERY hot!

We spent time at the Trevi fountain (1st photo), the Spanish steps (2nd photo), and the Pantheon (3rd photo). We also spent time at the colosseum and the forum as well (3rd and fourth photo's). An amazing site to see all of the old roman ruins in the middle of the city. The last day in Rome we spent at the Vatican museum where we saw the Sistine Chapel, and then headed over to St. Peter's basilica. It was all very beautiful!
