Everyday Journeys
January 9, 2013

Dec 5

After two days at sea, we were approaching our first port, Civitavecchia, Italy. Wednesdaymorning came really early; we had to be ready for a shore tour by 6:50 a.m. A bus would take us on a 90-minute drive into the center of Rome, followed by a guided walking tour of the Eternal City including the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world. The traffic in Rome was just what we expected -- chaos. Little “Smart” cars lined every street in the center of town, parked in every possible space, some legal, some not. Double parking seemed to be acceptable. We were so glad we were on a big bus, with an experienced driver at the wheel.

The Colosseum was so much more than we expected. Standing there in Rome, surrounded by this magnificent building that is more than 2,000 years old, where gladiators once fought each other was unbelievable. Before today, it was just words on the page of a book; now it was real. St. Peter’s Square was so much larger that we thought, and the inside is filled with unbelievably fantastic art by the Renaissance masters, Michelangelo, Bramante and Bernini. There are no wordsthat could adequately describe the Sistine Chapel- you will just have to see it for yourself.
