We went to Rome for Easter.  An all-night bus ride deposited us in the city with thousands of people who wanted to celebrate Easter with us.  The picture below sums up the effect of the crowds on our weekend.

We really wanted to see the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel.  A couple of our closest friends joined us for a 3-hour wait in line.

The 2000-year-old Colosseum.

The circular area in the center was under the Colosseum floor, where the animals were kept.

The Roman Forum

A typical corner in Rome: the street name (Via Margana), a no parking sign, a one-way arrow, an ad for an apartment, and plenty of graffiti.

Easter parade

The Trevi Fountain inspires some serious smooching.

It poured rain all day on Easter.  We may have been the only ones in the entire city who were too cool to carry umbrellas.
