We said goodbye to Rome by walking around and seeing many different sights including the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, and the Trevi Fountain. All of which we marveled and enjoyed gazing at. It was the perfect way to end our stay in Italy.
Oh the Pantheon, the once Roman temple dedicated to all the gods of pagan Rome, was one of those places that screamed history, beauty, and a lot of great architecture. The brick stamps of the building revel more than a thousand years of history.
Raphael’s tomb is said to be here and that was enough to fill me with awe.
The day cooled down just enough for us to sit and enough the Trevi Fountain. Micah and I enjoyed a good slice of pizza and gelato. We enjoyed getting to see the oldest source of water in Rome, built using the same material as the Colosseum.
The Spanish Steps were packed with people, but after dinner we walked by and just sat at the top to listen to local musicians. It was delightful. I didn’t understand why Spanish steps were in Italy and why they were so famous, but as it turns out they were built to link the Trinità dei Monti church that was under the patronage of the king of France, with the square below.
It’s great to look back at all of things we witnessed on the trip and to remember all the good that happened during our visit. Next up is Spain, which will lead us to finish posting about Europe. Come back soon.
