This is our last night in Italy.  We have had a wonderful and mostly relaxing vacation.  I will do one more email on Italy when we get back.  I’d like to give you some sense of our hotels and one restaurant in Rome that we loved so much we went back twice.

Rome has been somewhat exhausting.  There is a lot to see, but so many people, so much traffic.  Jason and I have both enjoyed Rome, but have crossed it off our list of things we need to do.  If we come back to Italy I know that we would see Venice again and Tuscany (maybe Florence). 

We’re leaving in the morning for the airport.  We hope we are awake in time, this hotel does not have telephones in the room (I never thought to look at that as a ‘perk’), but our friend at the desk has said he will knock on the door in the morning 🙂  We will arrive back in Cleveland at 2 am on Monday morning, but 8pm Sunday night local time.  Looking forward to getting home, but not the 9 1/2 hour plane trip to New York. 

Thanks for all of the emails.   I know I haven’t answered them all, but I will when I get home. 



Rome, last day

WE visited the Colosseum this morning and got a little turned around and spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon walking around aimlessly.  Once we got our bearings we went to the train station to buy a ticket to the airport tomorrow.  We’ve enjoyed our Italian vacation, but are ready to go home.  We’re ready to see Scout and Max 🙂  I will try and write one more blog tonight to recap our thoughts about Italy, but I need to rest for an hour!
