First to the Colloseum, (AD 72) queue about 200m long so we checked it out from the outside, still very impressive. Jane picked up a lovely Indian scarf from a dodgy seller for 5 euro.
Next, to the Vatican, queue about 500m so we observed from a distance.
After a cruise around the shops along the Via Corso we settled in at the "l'allegro Pachino" Restuarant, for a couple of bottles of Chianti and dinner of : garlic & tomato bruscetta, lasagne entre, Beef fillet with green peppercorn sauce, fries & salad and pizza marinara followed by Tira Misu and expressos. Easily the best meals of our holidays so far! Viva Italia.
Tomorrow, another wander around the city, then to Arezzo by train.
