After a lazy morning we arrived early at the bottom of the Spanish steps, early for our Twilight Walking Tour. The sheer volume of people just hanging out was as impressive as the steps themselves. It made the Easter Show in Sydney on Good Friday look quiet. We took pictures of people taking pictures of people .. and they took pictures of us too. Hungry, we walked nearby to find some food. Nothing to eat at Gucci, Chanel or Coach.. se we had to settle for some authentic local cuisine at Macdonaldino's. We met the tour at the top of the steps, enjoying a sundrehched viiew of Rome and a see breeze. On the tour we saw then some of the great sights including Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. What a building.... it survived by converting to Christianity. Tour also included a complimentary gelato which was truly mouth watering. The tour was a great introduction to Rome and made me feel Australian History is just a drop in the bucket in terms of what has happened in the world to date..... The city just breathes people soaking up the vibrations of the past emanating from the buildings around them. We took our tour guides recommendation to walk down some alleys for a more authentic local experience for dinner at Francesco's we were so close to the street everyone on the street side of their tables had to stand up and push the tables in to let a car pass. Home to a good nights sleep as a reward for a first days touristing well done.
