... marked by the Arch of Titus. I knew it was there, but it does come into view without warning as you make your way up a paved hill. Note please that paved means unforgiving and level-at-a-distance chunks of dark stone. As we were explaining what it was about, we happened on a local delivering a speech to his tour group in English, so we hung around trying to listen without being obvious.
In true Italian style, he was very expressive and passionate in his details ...

After a tasty and very filling lunch at "Le Tavernelle" it was time to wander around until the tour began. Tucked away along the narrow streets of Rome are many restaurants, cafes and shops.

A gelateria is calling my name and I have my first gelato this trip. Straciatella and bacio...my two favorite flavors.....yum yum.
Later in the evening I went to capture the sunset but it was obscured by some thick but interesting cloud formations you'll see in the photos posted. A lovely day here in Civitavecchia.
