Ciao Roma!

We made the 3 hour trip back to Rome. No worries Sorrento, we will return again someday.

Instead of a hotel we Air BnB’d it instead for the 4 days in Rome. Super proud of Mom for even knowing that was an option.

As with all of Italy, everything is a short walk, up stairs, and to the left… including our first floor flat, which was still up 2 flights of marble steps for some reason.

And know that if you’re ever in a rush, that God has a sense of humor and you’ll be putting things into perspective. I say it all the time… Americans don’t queue well. We don’t like to be kept waiting, we rush, we’re impatient, and we want what we want when we want it. We were rushing trying to make a tour of St. Peter’s Basilica leaving in 10 minutes. The couple in front of us was waiting 45 and had yet to be helped. Even though the tour left without us and we needed to reschedule our visit to the Sistene Chapel since the Pope wanted an audience that morning, we were able to appreciate the Basilica in all its gilded glory.
