Italy – Part 1

Here’s a rough itinerary of my trip to Italy.

March 4 – 5: Departed from Washington (Dulles) and flew to Paris. From Paris to Rome.

March 5th: Illuminated Rome by Night – Took a bus tour of the city and did some walking around the city. Saw the Colosseum, Vatican City, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the Trevi Fountain. I was very tired and kept nodding off on the bus.

March 6th: Ancient Rome & The Monuments of Rome (guided tours): In the morning saw the Colosseum up close, the Arches of Constantine and Titus, the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and St. Paul’s Basilica. In the afternoon saw the Piazza della Rupubblica, the Piazza Colonna, the Column of Macus Aurelius, the Pantheon, and the Piazza Navona.

March 7th: Free day – Visited the Spanish Steps and the Keats Shelley Museum that is right next to the Spanish Steps. Keats died in this room from TB. The bed pictured here is not the actual bed he died in. That’s Keats’ death mask under glass. The museum had locks of hair on display from Keats and Shelley, and it had lots of letters from various Romantic poets on display.
