  18. Wow! Have a great time! I have been many times, but it still feels amazing every single time!!! Enjoy the pizza! ;-)
    Please visit the roof of the cathedral! There is an elevator for which you can buy a ticket at a little office behing the cathedral on a corner ( on the right hand side). There are also steps if you do not want to use the elevator. Both are small, though. Not good for people with fear of small spaces. Have fun!

  19. Have a wonderful trip! My parents went to Italy (we're Australian so you can imagine that it's huge to do a Euro holiday from here) in 2007. They loved it.

  20. My DH's father immigrated from Italy when he was 9. We did a Mediterranean cruise a few years back, leaving from and returning to Rome, and hit several ports in Italy. It was great and so glad we did it before my DH passed away. Have a GREAT time!
