We walked over to the Piazza Navona on our way to the Pantheon. It was decided we would have to get some Christmas shopping done here later as there were many stalls of things to look at and only so much time in a day.
After the Pantheon we walked down the street to the Monument to Vittoro Emanuel. Locally the building is called The Wedding Cake because it is rather white and really kinda looks like it could be one. We climed up the steps and browsed the museum inside. We also had some great early evening views of the city including a few good sunset shots.
Crossing the street was interesting as you just kinda went when it looked clear. We learned to go when the nuns go as nobody wants to hit a nun. All the cars were so small! As we walked along the river home we saw lots of cars parallel parked but there was one in a parking space sideways! The car looked like the back half had been cut off behind the drivers seat and so it was actually as long as a normal car is wide and could actually park sideways!
