Rome Wasn't Built In Day (but we tried to walk it in one)...

Yesterday we visited Capitoline Hill, the most sacred of ancient Rome where the Temples of Jupiter and Juno once stood. We mounted the Vittoriano steps for the panoramic view, passed through the Piazza del Campidoglio to the Capitoline Museum and wandered past the Imperial Fora to explore the Colosseum more fully. A quick look round the Arch of Constantine and it was back to the Spanish Steps for a late lunch and a beer. Later on we went out for a 5 course meal with wine, water and coffee all in €18. Excellent. We also stumbled across a cruising ground in the massive park next to our hotel. Needless to say we stayed well clear.
