Itinerary for the day: Colosseum. Palatine Hills. Miscellaneous cathedrals and fountains. I took the adorable life-sized Lego Roman soldier/emperor (?) above at a general snack stall near the Colosseum. =)
Got lost while trying to find our way to some cathedral and stumbled upon another cathedral - Sant Andrea al Quirinale. Come to think of it, it's a personal favourite so far. It's the first cathedral we visited in Rome, and one of the most quaint. The best thing about Rome is - getting lost is actually a good thing! However, we don't get lost too often. My map reading skills aren't too bad. heh.
Last stop of the day was Santa Maria degli Angeli, just behind the lovely fountain. Apparently the church was built after a Sicilian priest had a vision of angels here in 1541.
Before I go, some photo credits to both Ms Rehau and Mr Irish for the pictures used throughout the europe trip blog. I chose my favourites from our pool of photos. The power of Ms Rehau's 10x zoom plus wide lenses camera certainly wins out most of the time though. heh.
