STARTED THE DAY WITH BREAKFAST AT THE HOTEL. A GREAT BUFFET INCLUDING BACON AND EGGS, CROISSANTS, BREAD, FRUIT, CEREAL, TEA, COFFEE AND MUCH MORE. WE THEN WENT ON THE HOP OFF HOP ON BUS TOUR AROUND THE CITY AND TOOK HEAPS OF PHOTOS. MET UP WITH ANOTHER AUSTRALIAN COUPLE WHO ARE TRAVELLING AROUND ITALY WITH THEIR SEVEN MONTH OLD BABY. THEY AGREED WITH US THAT HAVING THE BABY WAS A GREAT ADVANTAGE AS EVERYONE LOVES BABIES. DID THE WHOLE LAP WHICH TOOK A COUPLE OF HOURS AND SAW A LOT OF VERY OLD BUILDINGS INCLUDING THE COLLESEUM, CIRCUS MAXIMUS, ……… AND HEAPS MORE. ALSO WENT PAST THE VATICAN AND THE POPE WAS AT HIS WINDOW WAVING AT US. WELL PROBABLY AT ASHLEY WHO HAS NOW BEEN BLESSED.

HA HA HA! WE HOPPED OF BACK AT THE SAVOY (ONE BUS STOP IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE HOTEL) AND HAD A REST RECHARGED
CAMERA BATTERIES AND DOWNLOADED A BUNCH OF PHOTOS. OFF TO A PIZZERIA FOR LUNCH. FOUND A NICE LITTLE ONE NEAR THE TREVI FOUNTAIN. WE ORDERED PIZZAS AND SOME VEGIES. MISSING OUR VEGIES! ASHLEY WON THE HEARTS OF THE THREE BIG BURLY GUYS WORKING IN THE PIZZERIA. THE PLAYED HIDE AND SEEK BEHIND THE COUNTER AND CAME OUT TOO HOLD HER HAND AND SMILE AT HER. TOWARDS THE END SHE WAS GETTING SLEEPY. CAM PUT HER BACK IN HER PRAM FOR A SLEEP AND WAS TRYING TO GET HER TO SLEEP WHEN ONE OF THE GUYS CAME BACK INTO THE SHOP AND STARTED TO CALL OUT A COFFEE ORDER FOR A COUPLE SITTING OUTSIDE AND THE GUY BEHIND THE COUNTER TOLD HIM TO HUSH UP CAUSE THE BABY WAS TRYING TO SLEEP.

VERY FUNNY AND CUTE! WE THEN STARTED OUR WALKING TOUR. WE HEADED TOWARDS THE PANTHEON PAST THE TREVI FOUNTAIN. ON THE WAY KL SPOTTED A
BUNCH OF HORSES ARSES SO WE HEADED UP A HILL TO A SQUARE WHERE A MILITARY BAND PLAYING ON HORSE BACK AND GUARD WERE DOING SOME SORT OF CEREMONY. IT WAS JUST ENDING UNFORTUANATELY BUT THE PART WE SAW WAS INTERESTING. WE THEN TOOK A COUPLE OF TURN AND CAME OUT AT THE VITORIANO MONUMENT NEAR THE COLLOSEUM. THIS IS A VERY IMPRESSIVE MONUMENT. UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS CLOSED SO WE COULDN’T GO ON IT BUT TOOK A LOT OF PHOTOS AND WILL RETURN TMW. IT IS AMAZING HOW CLOSE EVERYTHING REALLY IS WHEN YOU ARE WALKING AROUND. WE THEN WALKED TOWARDS THE PANTHEON. THIS IS ALSO A VERY IMPRESSIVE BUILDING. THEN ON TO PIAZZA NAVONA…….. WE THEN STARTED OUR LONG WALK HOME. WE WERE ALL PRETTY TIRED SO HAD A REST AND WATCHED A LITTLE TV. KL DECIDED TO STAY HOME WITH ASHLEY AND NICK AND CAM WENT OUT TO DINNER. FOUND THE HARD ROCK CAFÉ JUST AROUND THE CORNER OF THE HOTEL AND HAD A BURGER AND BEER/COKE AT THE BAR. FOUND A LITTLE CAFÉ AFTER AND BOUGHT KL A SALAD SANDWICH AND A FEW LITTLE NUTELLA FILLED PASTRIES. THEN OF TO SLEEP AS HEADING TO VATICAN IN THE MORNING AND THEY ARE ONLY OPEN 0845 – 1345.
