We spent a week in Rome, so these photos only scratch the surface of what we saw. We had a great time with great weather and food... but to be honest, Rome was probably my least favorite stop of the trip. I'm so glad we went, but I felt like the constant barrage of needy tourists (ourselves included) put a damper on an otherwise lovely city. And I had real trouble trying to rectify in my mind the 'disney-fication' with such ancient and important history. The men dressed up as gladiators outside the Colosseum really irked me...
