After we checked in we had the rest of the day to explore and just wander around the city. We were informed that there would be protesting that afternoon so avoid the area around our hotel.
These are some of the police officers prepping for the events!
Lunch was fabulous...our first taste of Italian pasta!
We hiked up to some overlook spots above the Spanish Steps and the Piazza del Popolo.

We were able to get into the Pantheon and capture some pictures of the dome.
Just some pictures from around the city of Rome.
We stayed at the Hotel Artemide while in Rome. It was a great hotel with a fabulous location. We could walk to just about everything.
Hotel roofdeck that evening for cocktails.
