When in Rome

The ship docked in Civitavecchia for our day in Rome.  This is about an hour and a half by bus.  As the guides say there is nothing much to do locally we really had to take one of the tours.  Our guide took us to the Colosseum, Roman Forum and St Peter’s Basilica before giving us time to go and explore for ourselves.  We added the Spanish Steps, Fontana de Trevi and Pantheon in our circular walk (which also included McDonalds for a toilet stop).  Finding our way round the city was not very straight forward as there were very few signs to help.  We found our way, however, and made it back to the pick up point in plenty of time for gelato.  We now have very tired legs and are ready for a quieter day tomorrow.
