First pictures out and about in Rome...



Looking up at the Spanish Steps... unfortunately they are doing construction on the piazza at the top. Once that's done and there are some flowers in the Spring, I bet it will be even more beautiful.









View from the top of the Spanish Steps. There is a great restaurant on the right of this picture and I can't wait to try it! They mentioned a braised beef with a truffle sauce and I'm pretty sure I could smell it as I looked over the menu.










The girls walking around the stone streets of Rome.










Love Bug and Dadddy eating lunch at a cafe.













The Trevi Fountain...










... close up and more detail.








We passed a store with these stickers in the windows to let patrons know what languages they speak inside the shop. The sticker on the left obviously tells customers that they speak (some) English. This said...








... what is this other language they speak?
