... to the (Scalinata della Trinita di Monti) Spanish Steps, misnamed because they were built and paid for by the French! On the bus (a mini electric one) back past Piazza Del Popolo, and back home to Ludos Magnus (the gladiator barracks and training arena next to the Colosseo) and home. We were exhausted.
