European Vacation – Rome – Day 3

We had another tour booked for this morning and the tour bus was to pick us up at 7:00 am.  We set our alarm for 6:30 am, grabbed some breakfast and sat down to wait for the bus.  It was an hour late and we were thinking that we had been forgotten.  It finally came for us and took us to town, where we had to switch buses.  Since we were so late, there were not enough seats left and I had to share a seat with the tour guide.  Alvena and Karen also had to share seats with people we didn’t know.

This tour stopped at the Roman Forum, the Colosseum and St. Paul’s Church.  We enjoyed the tour and all the information given.

We were dropped off back at the campground after the tour and decided to stay there to lie in the sun and relax.  Since we were back in time for lunch and then had our supper there also, we saved quite a bit of money on food today.

For pictures today, we have one I took from inside the Colosseum and a postcard of The Alter of the Nation.  I’m not sure what the Alter of the Nation is, but we must have seen it or I wouldn’t have bought a postcard of it and that is what it is written on the back of the postcard.
