  1. Check out the maritime prison where Peter & Paul were…Peter’s face was shoved against the stone wall (by a guard) and his profile was indented in the stone. Have fun, I am so happy for you three!!!!

  2. You should go to the church Santo Spirito in Sassia, kind of right behind St. Peter’s. It’s the Divine Mercy church, St. Faustina’s heart is there, and they sing the Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3 every day. It is SO gorgeous!

    • Dorothy,
      As luck would have it, we went to Mass there yesterday! It really was lucky, though, since we had planned to go to Santa Maria in Trastevere, and upon arriving for the 11:30 Mass, we discovered that they changed their schedule for the month of July and never updated the interwebs (God forbid an Italian church have a website…)! So, we had to find an evening Sunday Mass and Santo Spirito in Sassia is just a short walk up our street. 🙂 It really is a gorgeous church, and we walked into adoration and confession going on as well. Good times!

  3. Nicole, I love Palatine Hill with the lemon groves, also you must wander through a small Italian bookstore. The walk up to Santa Maria Maggiore from the Piazzia Venizia is fun with little shops, also you should wander through the residential neighborhoods to find the little parks. I thought those were gems. Jealous!!!

  4. I recommend Basilica San Clemente, which is a 12th century basilica on top of a 4th century basilica, on top of an excavated portion of 1st century Rome, with still-flowing Roman plumbing and an old temple to Mithras. It is an incredible example of the layers of Rome, and probably one of the most interesting sites I visited.

  5. Ummm nowhere do you mention Gelato or Cappucino sites. To say I am a little disappointed is an understatement. But otherwise looks good!
