Reliving our trip to Italy

Our first stop--fabulous Rome. St. Peter's Basilica, art in the Vatican Museum, and Sistine Chapel awed us with their beauty! Michelangelo was a genius. What a shame he died in poverty.

Thinking of the countless Christians and gladiators who met their death's there, the Coliseum both fascinated and repelled me.

My husband and I toss imaginary coins into Trevi Fountain. We're too cheap to throw costly Euros. The kids aren't ours. Wish I knew how to crop photos.

Tomorrow, we'll "move on" to Pisa and Florence in beautiful Tuscany.
Hope you can make the trip!

I've never had much of a yen to travel overseas, just because i don't travel much AT ALL so there's lots still to see in America, but these pictures are so beautiful, Janet.
Thanks for sharing them.
