A Weekend as a Tourist in Roma, Italy

Samantha had planned several trips while in Italy, but did not have Roma on her schedule, so we took the train from Firenze to Roma and were there for about 50 hours. We tried to pack as much as possible into that time, including a city bus tour (one of the worst organized service experiences I have ever had), trips to Vatican City, St. Peter's Basilica, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps (under construction), Piazza Navona, and the Forum, and visits to many other spots.
Trevi Fountain...I first visited this with Candy (our second date ever) 32 years ago!
We did the Colosseum tour in the rain...the next day it was PACKED with visitors!
Dinner in Roma (my first dinner here was 32 years ago...on my second date with Candy!)
Gelato in Roma after two days of walking (34,000 steps each day for you FitBit fans!)
