27 September 2021

A lot of new photos from 9/26, but this will just be a placeholder entry until I have time to upload them. We stayed out late to celebrate my birthday after meeting up with some old friends again for Mass and a walk around Rome. Highlights:

  • Chiesa della Santissimi Trinita dei Pellegrini, the FSSP church in rome. Small (we were quite crowded for the 11:00 mass!) but a very beautiful church.
  • Doing the Heart of Rome audio tour from Rick Steves, we hit a number of highlights from the Campo dei Fiori to the Pantheon to the Spanish Steps.
  • We then took the Metro one stop north and walked back from the Piazza del Populo to the vicinity of the Pantheon
  • Finished up the day with some pretty great food at Ristorante Trattoria Antonio al Pantheon

Slept in a bit today (9/27) and now getting ready to rush off for the Colosseum and Roman Forum!

Spotted the dome of St. Peter’s on the bus ride to the church
