    This will be my first time in Rome. Made it to Venice for an evening, but never Rome. The scenery and the food are beautiful.

    Ah I love this journey. Some of my favorite memories are in Rome. We happened to be vacationing there when the Pope John Paul passed so it was very historical in memories as well. Love this challenge!!
