Front of the Pantheon
For our first day in Rome we decided it would be a day to focus on rest. Our main goal would be to hang around our B & B in the Pantheon region and focus on the sites around our B & B. Our first stop was Piazza Navona. While we were there we found the tourist information office and we bought Roma Pass. This pass includes three days of transportation and two free sites.

Our next stop was the Pantheon We had a Rick Steves podcast tour so we took that tour. The pantheon is free but is quite an impressive structure since it was built so long ago.  The dome inside is huge.  It is amazing that nothing like that dome was built for another 1400 years.

We also walked to the Spanish steps, we tried to get into the Borghese gardens, but couldn't figure out how. And we also saw the super crowded Trevi fountain. 

It seems like a lot of the roads are closed to traffic in Rome on Sundays, so it is a good day to just walk around.  We took a tram ride just to see where it would go.  It ended up going by a stadium and going into a normal looking residential area.  The advice to stay in Pantheon region in Rome is great advice.  It is an area that makes Rome unique.

We came back to our B & B for a short nap then we had supper at Campo dei Fiori. We had a great meal at La Carbonara where we order two dishes each. The pasta and then the meat dish. We also had dessert and espresso. It was fantastic. A great way to end our day of rest.
