While last week’s weekly wrap was all about work, this one is all about play. I spent 5 days in Rome with my husband and children. We flew in early Monday morning and after getting our apartment, which was in the city center, we sent off to explore the area on foot. Here are the highlights of the first four days :
Monday: 14 000 steps, 9 km
Tuesday : 21 600 steps, 14 km. By far our most favorite day !
Wednesday : 22 175 steps, 14,5 km
The Vatican museum and the Sistene Chapel were the highlights, but you can not take pictures inside the chapel. The pictures below come from the museum.
Thursday : 18 920 steps, 12,4 km
The highlight was Borghese Park and Gallery.
Friday : 26 220 steps, 17 km
We went to St. Peter’s Basilica. It opens at 7 and we got there early, and went through the metal detectors (there are at least 20 !) with no problem. We immediately went up to the dome. You can walk all the way up or take en elevator half way up, then walk. There are 550+ stairs. We chose to walk but I felt a little claustrophobic and by the time I got to the top my leg muscles were shaking. But it was worth the view.
I am only posting one picture as this post is very picture heavy, but will do a second post soon.
How was your week ? Ever been to Rome ?
