... After this we drove to see the Trevi fountain, made famous in Hollywood movies. However, it was still under restoration and there was no water in it. We then had free time and wandered down to see the Pantheon and had a slice of pizza for lunch but nowhere near as delicious as Spontini's. Our main activity after lunch was a guided tour of the old Rome excavation site and the Colosseum. It was extremely interesting and fascinating to learn about the history and see the ...

... I'd imagined. The other works of art were also impressive, but seemed to have a recurring theme - Madonna and child and Jesus on the cross. After a while the girls were keen to leave, as I was. We still had so much to do.
We then headed straight for the Duomo. I have to say, I have never experienced crowds as I did in Florence. Every part of thje city we visited was crowded with tourists. It must drive the locals crazy. The Duomo was no exception. The line to get ...
