After perusing the shops, we will gladly fall to the customary late and long hour of eating enormous amounts of food. The next two days will be filled with touring museums, browsing galleries and people watching. To pick up the pace, we will blaze down to the political and religious capital, Rome. The train down will cost about $57 per person, our cheapest payment yet since the rooms were $179 a night. I think that the most we will be able to take of this vivacious city is about 2 days.
