Strolling Around

We woke up fairly early this morning, trying to get over our jet lag and into our new time zone. Oliver has adjusted really well and slept through the night - I had to wake him up this morning and he was still pretty sleepy - a first for him. We decided to go out and stroll around and headed for the Piazza Navona for a caffelatte.

Very close to the Piazza Navona is the Pantheon. It was nice being there so early. There weren't a lot of people there and the sun was shining throught the oculus, projecting a large ray of light onto the coffers of the dome.

We headed back to the apartment along the river passing by the Castel S. Angelo and the Ponte S. Angelo which is lined with Bernini's angels.

We had such a busy morning, we took the afternoon off to rest. Ate an early dinner and hung out in the Campo de Fiori with some gelato.
