However, we did spend almost 24 hours in Rome. What a beautiful city! The colors seem to just glow in the Italian light--rusts, ochres, warm yellows...just amazing. We did a lot of walking around to see the sights--the colosseum (where it started to rain), to the pantheon, to a tartufo in the Piazza Navona, and then the Spanish Steps...we came back here the next morning so I could do a sketch. Tons and tons of tourists here and blazing heat, but this is it...my one Roman sketch in this beautiful city.
