Thanks Tufbuf. We actually booked with Dark Rome tours. Although, the general audience tickets are free, we went with Dark Rome. It was about 30 euro and they provided about 2 hours of history and commentary of what would happen. The guide also knew exactly where to go to get the best views.

Thanks so much!! Very helpful, as always... Making me rethink of spending pre-nights in Rome instead of Barcelona on our Med cruise.... Hmmmmm....

Excellent photos! All the night-time shots are, of course, what I missed out on by doing a cruise vs an ABD! I love the night shot of the Ponte Vecchio and the Coliseum! I really like the variety of stuff you did on your post-days. You really saw some of that stuff from a very different vantage point!

Thanks for sharing! Please be sure and put a link to your lovely Report in the Trip Report Sticky!

Sayhello

We didn't have a problem taking photos of the Pope's tombs. We were with a guide who was pretty diligent about telling us what we couldn't take photos. There was also Vatican security around.

Glad you found La Boticello in Rome. It was so cool to find a Steeler's bar in another country. I like the way you did this trip by going to Rome afterwards. It's such a great city. Thanks for sharing your trip with us!

Thanks Diskidatheart. It was based on your post that I found out about it. I looked on line and knew it was off of the Piazza Navona. I asked our guide if he knew where La Boticello was, and he didn't. When I mentioned the "Steelers Bar", he knew exactly where to send me.
