Rome #2

4"x 6" Miniature Original
A Painting A Day... $225

I went with a street scene today.  Narrow streets
often one car wide.  I was constantly amazed
at the age of the buildings.  Roman times!!

Trip update:
On day two we had a guide at St. Peters.  There was limited
access because the Pope was speaking the next day.  We did
get right up close to the Pieta.  A highlight for all of us.
Next was an afternoon tour of St.John Laterna and Scala Santa.
Scala Santa was full of pilgrims crawling up the stairs on their
knees, one of the few churches that was quiet.
Our focus today was early Christianity with lots of churches!
