Rome for Two, Day Two

Sunday Sept 25, was Rachel and my first full day together in Rome. We took the tram into the city, and went to St Peter's. While entering the Basilica, the jumbotrons broadcast a live feed of the Pope giving a Mass in Germany. We got to listen to the music while walking through St Peter's Square. After St Peter's, we walked to the Vatican Museums, but they had closed, so we went to the Castle St. Angelo, which Rachel had never been to. We walked around the city afterwards, visiting the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. Then we took a boat tour of the Tiber at sunset. We had dinner in a small cafe near Campo di Fiore, almost getting run over by the crazy Italian drivers in the narrow streets. We also had delicious gelato from a place Rachel had visited six years before, near the Trevi fountain. It was a wonderful day.
