Our next stop was in Rome, Italy. All we can say is that Rome is amazing. It seems like every corner you go around there is something architectually amazing! For Mandy and I it was amazing to see all the Michaelangelo paintings in the Sistene Chapel as well as his marble statues he carved. We'd just read "The Agony and the Ecstasy" which brought it all to life. The kids did really well especially with all the walking we did. We rewarded them about 3 times a day with gelato!!!
