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!

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…..

    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
