Arrivederci Roma!

What a glorious Sunday in Rome, our last day of our Roman Holiday.  After mass in the Pantheon, we strolled over to the Spanish Steps,

where you would think it was Easter in New York City.  Except I was here, in the historical and magical city of Rome!

People were decked out in their finest, mink coats, hats,

children romping an playing through the crowd and

street musicians everywhere.

After some leisurely stops for antipasti and chianti, we lingered over our last gelato, a true indulgence!

We boarded our long flight home and looked out the window. Here were the snow-capped Italian Alps peaking above the cottony clouds. A fitting end to a dream vacation.
