FYI, you cannot see all of Rome in 3 days or longer. You need to plan to return to Rome and take in doable sections at a time. As of this blog entry, my wife and I have lived in Italy for the past 2.3 years and this is the first time we made it down to Rome. We will be here to close to 3 weeks and will barely scrath the surface of sights to see and places to go to.

BTW, I am in Rome TODAY until the 9th of January with my wife, Martha. If anyone wants to chat or find sushi or dim sum or Asian cuisine or anything else, please post a comment with your contact info and I'll be in touch with you. We'll coordinate getting together to do something somewhere in or around Roma. We will be close to the Piramide Metro stop.

My wife's cousin, Bonnie, and her husband, Pete, flew into Rome from Philadelphia, PA, USA, on Monday and will be returning to Ocean City, NJ on Thursday morning. My wife was thrilled to see and be with family during part of our own stay in Roma. I'll update this blog entry on where and what they did while in Roma.
