Italy Day 4: Rome

We did not have a ton planned for our final day in Rome, and it ended up being a nice relaxing day. We went to Galleria Borghese in the morning. The musuem contains several works of Bernini. Bernini's Apollo and Daphne is remarkable, and we circled back to check it out twice.

Just before sunset, we headed out to Piazza del Popolo. We strolled from there past many shops and street performers. We wound up having dinner outside in a little piazza just a couple blocks north of the Pantheon. We ended the night with some amazing Gelato at Giolitti's, a famous spot. It was the most pleasant night in terms of weather, probably about 75 degrees or so around 11. We walked through the streets back to our hotel.

Tomorrow we are headed north to the Cinque Terra. Should be fantastic.
