ROME - SPRING 2013
This month long Spring trip to Italy was a little different than most. We decided that we would spend only 2 weeks in Rome and then go to Israel for two weeks. We did have to return to Italy for two days after Israel to catch our plane back to DC.
The other difference was that the Queen's daughter and her husband Matt came to Rome for nine days. We spent most of that time in Rome visiting some places that the King and Queen had not been to since the Queen's sabbatical in 2004. We did make one trip outside Rome to Tivoli to see the Villa d'Este and its many fountains and the Villa Gregoriana which is not a villa but an Italian National Park.
