My collection of receipts and ticket stubs from Rome attractions and restaurants.
These are shots of ceilings in the Vatican Museum. Now you know that the Sistine Chapel is not the only painted ceiling in Rome (in fact they are legion). Almost every building I entered had paintings or frescoes on the ceilings.
This is a pic taken from the train between Rome and Florence. I took many photos from the train and since the outside of the train windows were dirty, most of them have spots or streaks.
The area we traveled through north of Rome on our way to Florence was lush and green, full of small villages and scenic hillsides replete with grape vines, olive trees and orchards. It was a serene and restful treat for the eyes after the opulence and ornament of Rome.
Next we stop in Florence (Firenze), home of Michaelangelo's David and other treasures. Come back soon for another installment of Planes, Trains, Etc.
