Rome, Italy – Christmas Day – Sights On Our Walk To Vatican City

On our walk away from the Colosseum we saw many different sights!


Ancient Ruins along a walkway….


Here is the Santa Francesca Romana Church:



Video of a small part of the mass within the church:

As we start our walk along Via dei Fori Imperiali, a road in the centre of the city that runs straight from the Colosseum to the Piazza Venezia, we see another old church!


….Santa Claus out for a jog….


…and many others too….


The Temple of Peace:

Alter of the Fatherland:

Imperial Forum – a public square built in Ancient Rome


Entering Piazza Venezia:


We were hungry and stopped for a bite to eat at a little cafe called Caffe Roma near the piazza…

We then continued our walk to Vatican City, along the many narrow streets of Rome, lined with beautiful old buildings and churches….

We crossed the River Tiber on the Ponte Vittorio Emanuel II bridge..bringing us closer to Vatican City, along with thousands of people…..


Statues on the bridge:


View of the Ponte Sant’Angelo bridge and the Castel Sant’Angelo:


And then we took a few more turns on small streets like this:


….that brought us to Vatican City…..

    So happy you both were in such a beautiful old church on Christmas Day at Mass. Reminded me of “high Mass’ when I was young. You really have captured the sights of ancient Rome. Great job Stephanie xoxoxoxo
