And now for day two in Rome! We decided to take that day to go to the Castel Sant'Angelo, a former fortress of the Pope (and another location for Angels and Demons!) We took our time getting there to wander through Rome and enjoy the Italian Sunshine.
Some column whose name escapes me at the moment...
High Courts (kinds of like the Supreme Courts)
Eric setting up a sweet pic of the bridge.
Built by Emperor Hadrian in 135 AD to be used as a mausoleum, and later Popes used it as a castle/fortress. There is a passage between the Vatican and Sant'Angelo.
This was at the end of "Culture Week" so entrance was FREE (I love the word 'gratuito') but many other tourist were there too.
Angel on the Ponte Sant'Angelo and the Italian Flag. Viva Italia!
St. Peter's Cathedral
SO MANY ANGELS

Archangel Michael and the Papal Seal
Now I know that nuns like to sight see too....there were a lot of nuns at the Castel and at the Vatican
busted up Papal Seal
The castel was really interesting and offered wonderful views of Rome. I loved it! Next post will be about our trip to the Vatican...
