Rome. Day 7 - The Final Full Day


We decided to visit an area we hadn't got round to on our final day. We got the subway to Lapanto station and walked down to Piazza Cavour which is in front of the big court building.



The front of the court on the river side.



The river looking towards the city centre.



And the other way looking towards St Peters Basilica.



On to the Castel Sant' Angelo. Used for various things over hundreds of years. And also houses papal apartments.



Over the Vatican from the third level of the castle.



One of the many bridges across the river.

It was a scorching day with a storm rumbling away in the distance. So we headed back to the subway. Once we had reached Termini the storm had hit hard, with rain pouring down into the lower levels of the station. We hung around until it had slowed enough to make the short walk back to the hotel.

Time to do some packing then off out for dinner. Seats booked on the flight home tomorrow and boarding cards loaded into passbook on the iPhone.

It has been a great week in Rome. But we now need a holiday to recover.



I just need to add one more photo to this report.

We decided to go back to a restaurant we had been to a couple of times before and sat down inside.

My DD started waving at someone so we turned round thinking who on earth is she waving at.

It was my best man (and I was his best man) and his family. We knew they would be in Rome towards the end of our trip. But to bump into them in a restaurant when we didn't even know where they were staying was amazing.

Thank you for posting your photo trip report - I have enjoyed looking at all your photos because as you will see from our countdown, we are off to Rome in just over two weeks. Only have 3 days in the city though before heading to Sorrento from where we will do Pompeii and Herculaneum and hopefully have a few rest days too.
