After lunch, we walked around the town. The view of Lake Albano was gorgeous even on a cloudy day! We saw a wedding photo shoot, and we could see that it was a beautiful place to do so even on a cloudy day. On the way back to Fz’s van (he was waiting there for us), it started to drizzle. The streets (no sidewalks) were cobblestone. I thought that they might be slippery and was walking carefully. However, I had on my white Ked sneakers. I felt myself start to slide like I was on a sheet of ice. I had absolutely no control and slid in slow motion until I fell flat on my butt. I saw my knees bent (which don’t bend so easily anymore!) in odd positions and one leg behind me and I screamed a bit. LOL! Actually, I was a little scared that I had broken something, but I was fine. No one got a picture… We weren’t far from Fz, around the corner. He could hear screams (some were of laughter). He said he told his friends: Americanos! But he did not think it was us… When he saw us come around the corner (laughing by that time!), he said his heart stopped and he said, “Noooooo, not Debooooorah – I have 5 tours booked with her!!!” LOLOL!!!!

It poured when we were in Nemo. Luckily, Fabrizio had umbrellas for us. Even in the pouring rain, it was awesome. Some really quaint streets and again beautiful views of the lake.

We stopped back in Rome at the store near Fz’s cousin’s restaurant to get beer, soda, and snacks. Fz said he was talking to his cousin and he and his wife (the woman also working there yesterday) are getting a divorce. No wonder the man was grouchy yesterday! Pasta in Italy!

Fz started calling Maria “Mary”. Finally, she said I don’t know what’s going to happen if you keep calling me Mary! Fz said later that he respects that because sometimes people call him “Fab” and he wants to punch them. LOL! He calls Phil “Phillips”. He also calls Maria “The General” because he says that she gives the orders.

We finished off the tour at a delicious gelato place that Fz knew the owner /manager, Angolo Gelato. It was so delicious!! It was the only time that we had gelato (and I regret that so much now!) and we loved it. That shows you how busy and tired and stuffed we were all the time. 😊

After the tour, we went to our rooms. I called my daughter and grandson to say Happy Birthday!!! Speaking of phones, I wasn’t sure what to do as I did not want to spend a lot of money on a phone plan with the time difference but really wanted to be able to be reached in an emergency or contact my family back home. We decided to add the international option to our Verizon plan for which, if you use phone or data that day, it is $10 for the day. It worked out great. I ended up paying an extra $90 so used it about half the days of the trip.

After resting a while, M called to see if we wanted to go get pizza or something. Silly to be in Rome and not be doing anything. She said people would ask her what she did at night in Rome and they would think she was nuts to be sleeping in the hotel room. We asked the concierge for recommendations and he gave us directions to walk to a nearby restaurant. Concierge said it was close by, but it felt like a fairly far walk. Not really, only about 15 minutes… Poor Phil had a bit of trouble keeping up. We went here twice but I never got the name. Phil tried his first Italian beer, Peroni, and he liked it.

We got pizza and it was so delicious. However, drum roll, it was the first time we saw Frank NOT like something in our years of travels. M&I ordered the regular cheese pizza (Marguerite) and Frank got the 4 cheese pizza. Unbeknownst to him, the forth cheese was Gorgonzola. YUCK!! He could not eat it. Lucky M and my pizzas were so big that he had plenty. (Phil just got beer.) It was a weird experience (beyond Frank not liking something) as the other customers there were just staring at us. Guess they don’t like the Americanos there! Our sever was very dry. He warmed up a little bit, but we just did not feel welcome there. He did take F’s pizza off the bill without us asking. And he did tease P about the Italian beer.

Outside the hotel door:

We walked back to the hotel and sat on the balcony a while.

Monday,10/23/17, Day 4 – Rome, Italy

Vatican tour day!! I knew it would be amazing and touching but reality was so much more. I had tears at times during the day. It was an exhausting day but so amazing! The tour for the day with AAI was 370 euros and 140 euros for the guide in the Vatican.


Fz picked us up at 8:30 am. We were a few minutes late as M&F were working out mini bar bills. You get charged just moving things - $28 each!!! LOL, on the way down to the lobby, I leaned on the buttons in the elevator. An alarm went off and what I thought was a recording in Italian was talking to us. All of a sudden I hear “Americanos”…LOL!

Beautiful sunrise from our balcony!

First, we went back to the Coliseum to get some more pictures from outside. We did not go inside and will save that for a return visit.

We got a coffee and pastries at a place, called Burgers + Pizza, across the street. They did not seem to like us. Luckily, Fz was there to order for us and he paid also. Very nice!



Fz warning Frank that Fz would pay and showing him where the bathrooms were... 😊

Then, we went to the Vatican Necropolis tour. I had pre-booked online. They only take 12 same language speaking participants at a time and only 175 people total a day. We were very happy that we did this. It was so touching and awe-inspiring. It was also very hot and humid. I thought it would be cooler underground. We met at the ticket office and there were no lines.

Amazing!! The entire Vatican is built around St. Peter’s tomb. You could not take pictures on this tour. Unfortunately, I had brought my bag as we were rushed when Fz dropped us off, and I had to carry it throughout, but I could not use my camera. We were at what is arguably one of the most sacred and solemn places in the Catholic religion – just under St. Peter’s tomb, and you can actually see it. People were visibly touched. I had tears in my eyes. All of a sudden, due to no actions on my part, Siri says from my bag, “I’m sorry, I can’t get a connection.” Everyone laughed. But come on!!!! Americanos in Rome!!!!! So embarrassing. Here are some pics of our way into the Vatican. The rest you must go to see. 😊
