Layover in Rome

We had an eight hour layover in Rome and left the airport to do a quick walking tour of the city. Way too little time but we saw quite a bit.

Here is the colosseum, a site that would normally take at least an hour or more to visit, we did in about 10 minutes. It was spectacular to see up close in person.

My obsession with cats continues in Rome with another sighting.

Rome is an amazing city. The food was incredible. We stopped at a farmer’s market to have lunch. The tomatoes were so flavorful. Food just taste so much better when a lot of labor and love is put into the production.
