We arrived mid afternoon yesterday after a 10 hour overnight flight from San Francisco with a connection in Frankfurt onward to Rome.
With only a few hours to get reacquainted with the neighborhood around our hotel, located between the Pantheon and the Spanish Steps, we went for a walk. Within an hour we were greeted by a thunder shower. Oh well, time for cocktails at a local hotel pub.
Today we decided to explore something new. This morning we strolled down to the always beautiful Spanish Steps, then onward via the Metro to the sparsely visited St. Peter-in-Chains Churchjjn (San Pietro in Vincoli). Built in the 5th century as the home of the chains for St. Peter as he was led to his crucifixion and the amazing statue of Moses by Michelangelo.We spent the morning and early afternoon strolling slowly back to our hotel.
