Thursday March Madness Rome

Hi to you all...it is 10PM Rome time. Today we started out very early. Went to the Southwest part of Rome. It would be considered upper middle class of living and business. Trastevere is the area. We had Gelato around 10:30AM and walked through Villa Doria..which is located in a public park .... also, running along the paramaters is a aquaduct built in the 1609. We are having problems loading pictures to night...but what we took are fabulous. Then we went back toward the township of Trastevere and had the best pizza, of course, again. Have been very blessed with college students studying over here from America... and they have helped us to get directions. A nice young girl took us to the Church of Trastevere, one of the oldest Chrisitan churches , which was built in the 13th century. It was built on a site when the first Christians worship when it was not legal. This plaza is used alot when Hollywood comes to shoot. Then were off to the Roman Cats...this where they live among some ancient ruins. Off again to the Panthon...the only that is in exitistance and was saved from being burned down by a Christians and they built their church around it. We had a great day....more tomorrow...
