Rome, Italy

For Rome we chose the Ultimate Rome package to make sure we saw the Colosseum as well as the Sistine Chapel. Glad we did but both visits were very brief.

Florence, Italy

We knew very little about Florence, just that it's home to the Renaissance and has lots of great art, including the statue of David..
Viewed: 601 times.
