Apologies to all who keep on gently reminding me that Day 3 in Rome is now overdue. Tardy I am I just have been on the road all over but did manage to visit the Grand Canyon, Antelope canyon and the Hoodoos in Escalante. More about that later. here is Day 3. Day 3 was a revisit to some covered at night earlier:
First stop Spanish Steps and the Church:
Next stop was a quick stop to the Convento di Cappucini a macabre site! This site has 5 crypts built and decorated- artistically- with the bones and skull of dead friars. There is a skull room, a pelvis room and a room where the legs and thigh bones are used. Bones decorate the walls, lampshades. Pictures are not allowed so no pictures here!
Piazza Navona, a city square with a palace and fountains:
The square contains several fountains, the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi Fountain of the Four Rivers):
Next stop the Pantheon and the Church inside:
Three days are just not enough for Rome. I missed the Villa Borghese Gardens, all the Museums, the Baths of Caracalla, the Catacombs, Via Appia Antica and so much more. But they say Rome will be in your travel in the future if you leave Rome after dropping a coin in the Trevi Fontana. The last stop naturally had to be Trevi Fontana:
I am sure there are many more places that I could not visit in this trip. Do let me know there will always be another day in Rome. After all I did throw that coin in the Trevi Fontana!
