Sunday in the Park

You can't throw a stone in Rome without hitting some kind of landmark. We decided to go to the Villa Borghese, which is a large park with a zoo, in the northern part of the city. To get there we had to walk across the Centro Storico, or the Historic Center of Rome. Along the way we ran in to plenty of sites.

The Pantheon (again), this time the back:

The Fontana di Trevi, or the Trevi Fountain, which had a massive amount of people there:

The Spanish Steps:

and The Piazza del Popolo, the square of the people, seen here from Pincio Hill, which is on the edge of the Villa Borghese:

The park was very nice with beautiful Romanesque scenery high above the city. We had a little picnic for lunch on the lawn. Oliver and I shared a peach. He only has two front teeth but somehow he manages to eat this thing.

Some images of Villa Borghese:

We took Oliver to the Zoo and he had a blast checking out all of the animals.
