Began by taking the Metro to the Colosseum and toured using my Roma pass which includes transportation and 2 attractions over 3 days! Walked all around trying to get the best views of the Colosseum, old columns and ruins. They are rebuilding the platform inside the Colosseum too! I wonder what sort of events they will hold when it is finished? Took the Metro to Flaminio stop to see the Piazza Popolo (people) and had a cheap lunch before hiking into the Borghese park where I rented a Segway! WHAT A BLAST! I really enjoyed getting some nature time since so much of this journey has been in cities. The sun was shining, the spring flowers blooming, and I was smiling like a fool riding a segway all around the huge park! I teased a group of joggers by moving my arms like I was running faster! Next I walked to the Spanish Steps and took Metro to the Barberini stop so I could walk to the Trevi Fountain. Sat in the sunshine and had a gelato (raspberry and banana) talked to Kelly and threw in my coin hoping for a return trip to Rome! Off to dinner now and a good sleep.
Lessons learned: It is OK to get good at telling street venders to " w*** off" when they bother you for photos, flowers or other crap they peddle.
Tomorrow Plans: St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel.
