October 18 Civitavecchia, Rome, Italy

Our RIL guide today was Andrea. He picked us up at ship at 0800 and we were off on our world wind day. So much packed into a short time. Most important is we all had our tickets we had gotten before trip for Colosseum 14 Euros apiece and Vatican entry 12 Euro and 19 apiece for private guide.

On our way went by a very large park in Rome. Saw Tiber river and Angel Castle. Went to Pantheon 27BC started ti build as simple temple became tomb of kings .270_DSC_2271.jpg270_DSC_2272.jpgDSC_2274.jpg270_DSC_2275.jpg270_DSC_2291.jpglarge_DSC_2292.jpg270_DSC_2296.jpglarge_IMG_2058.jpglarge_IMG_2060.jpg270_DSC_2299.jpg270_DSC_2301.jpg270_DSC_2303.jpg270_DSC_2304.jpg90_IMG_2049.jpgDSC_2298.jpgDSC_2279.jpgDSC_2277.jpg
