Day 7: Rome
After supper Martin guided us around the city and showed us most of the big sites by night. It was fun and by the time we returned to our rooms it was late and we hit the sack!
I'm here again to tell you about our amazing adventure in Rome!
We started our day early in Florence, grabbed some breakfast, and hit the road! We made a quick stop at the Florence American Cemetery, a cemetery from World War II. Thousands of white crosses stood among green grass. A large statue guarded them as though to say no one would ever hurt these people again. It was very humbling.
After a bit longer in the bus we arrived at a beautiful family- run winery. Cecilia, (pronounced chi-che-lee-uh) who owned the place explained how they made wine and the history of the place and even took us to the wine cellar, where there was a bat! After some freaking out we proceeded to the wine tasting.
I can't tell you that much about the wine tasting itself since I'm not old enough to have wine, but the food was pretty good and the scenery was lovely(see above)
After lunch we finished the scenic drive to Rome! We arrived in the city around four or so and walked around before finding ourselves at dinner. The supper was made by a lady who had made the same meal every night for forty years! It was a full three courses and was really delicious!
