    Dan and I are in Rome for a few days prior to our Med cruise. We're making the rounds doing some new things and seeing some of our favorite atttractions. For more photos and explanations see my blog http://hardtoport.blogspot.com
    The last hazy photo is the wreck of the Costa Concordia as seen from our aircraft at 15,000 feet.

    Thanks, Amy...one of the only things that can get me off my other favorite island (Fire Island) in the summer is fun foreign travel.

    Grey...the Piazza Navona, the social center of Rome, is probably our favorite place to visit in Rome. We've found some nice restaurants there, and it's always jumping. The Borromini St. Agnes church and the Bernini fountain in the piazza are wonderful examples of the genius of these two great artists.

    The Piazza Navona is probably our favorite meeting place in Rome too.

    And you can nibble on tartufo while cooling off by the fountains. A great spot.

    BTW-Is the restaurant TRE SCALINI still operating in the piazza?

    Amy, oh yes, Tre Scalini is very much still holding down their spot...we're planning to go there today after our visit to the Vatican ...for our chocolate tartufo...yummy!
