Veni vidi vici

Veni viddi vicci

In one day. We conquered Rome by spending a full day walking to the sights. We visited the Coliseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and Piazza Navona. We drank Italian beer and wine, tasted Gelato, and even had time to relax. I did not like the Italian food, at least not yet. Kelly and I must be really, really, hooked on Greece still. We skipped pasta for some fresh market veggies and made our very own Greek salad. Then we even skipped our second day in Rome and went to the beach.

It's neat, there is a beach only thirty minutes away from the center of Rome. We took a train straight there. The locals go often, so most on the train were doing the same thing. Kelly and I found a not so crowded spot, got Italian drinks, and tanned. This beach reminded me of California coast, wavy, rough, and surfy. Far from the turquoise calm water of Greece, but still enjoyable. We stayed until ten pm, and even got massages on the beach for cheap.

Next stop: Venice.
