Italia Trip!! With lots of pictures

My trip to Italy went by way to fast! I couldn't have asked for a better trip! The weather was perfect there. In the 60s and sunny. It was great to see my brother and family. The hotel I stayed in was right next the pantheon and in walking distance to practically everything. I walked a ton, so much that I was sore every night. We even took a day trip to the town my grandma grew up in. That will have to be a blog all on it's own though. Too much to tell from that day.

It was just a great great trip. It was great to be with my family, to eat awesome food, and to see some of the most beautiful sights. Words can't even describe it. Here are a tiny sampling of the many many pictures I took!

This was the view from my hotel room window!! The Pantheon. This was the best hotel I've ever stayed in.

Trevi Fountain. Which was a 5 minute walk from my hotel.

Me and my niece at the top of the Spanish Steps. That was a tough climb holding the kid. lol

Me inside the Colosseum.

This was taken on the roof of my hotel. That's the capital building.

In the Vatican Museum. This is the hallway that leads to the Sistine Chapel. So intricate.

Me in front of St. Peters

I climbed to the top of St Peter's. over 500 steps to get up there! I was out of breath and sweating hard, but that view made the whole thing worth it!

The Bridge of St. Angels. I loved this bridge. So pretty.

The mouth of truth! I was determined to go here. I've been dying to see this ever since I saw Roman Holiday. Ironically this was the only church that I had to wait like an hour to get into. No other places had any sort of line.

The relic of St Valentine. I had no idea that this church had his remains there. That was pretty cool to see.

Last night in Italy!! With my niece.
