Day Ten: Rome to Milan

We woke up early for our last full day in Italy. Our train did not leave until 3 but there were still things I wanted to see.

  

We walked to the Pantheon. This was a pretty neat building. It is an example of one of the first uses of domes. 

       

After visiting the Pantheon we walked to Piazza Navona which is the largest “square” in Rome. It is actually more like a rectangle. We took the obligatory     “I was there” pictures and then walked back to our apartment. 

     

A block from our apartment was an old crypt in a church. This was the Capuchin Crypt. The musuem before you get to the crypts was pretty interesting. It had a bible printed on the Gutenberg press. It also had a lot of old religious items pertaining to old Friars. Then you get to the crypt. Bones of Friars are arranged in a decorative fashion. It was quite interesting.

We came back to the apartment and had lunch and relaxed for about an hour and then we headed to the train station. We took our train to Milan and then took the airport train to the airport. We had dinner at the airport and then caught the hotel shuttle. By this time it was 9:30 pm. We had the kids shower and then told them to go to bed as we needed to be up “early” the next day to catch our flight home. (The kids did not spend the entire vacation on their iPods, despite what the pictures below may indicate.)
