We had a wonderful day in Rome, on our own. We took a bus to St. Peter’s Square and then took a taxi to the Jewish Synagogue and Museum. It is a beautiful building. We had a tour and then walked around the museum. We then walked around the area. I always wanted to see the Spanish Steps, so we took another taxi to get there. Flowers were all over the place. We then walked to the Trevi Fountain and had some gelato for lunch. Nutritious. We didn’t have any small coins with us, so we didn’t throw our $2 euro into the fountain. Walked around the shops there and then took a taxi back to St. Peter’s Square where we did some more shopping before taking the bus back to the ship. The weather was fabulous but it was very crowded and the traffic was horrible. Tomorrow we’re going to the Tuscany town of Lucca. Jim & I had been there before and liked it.
