Roman Holiday

Our final day in Rome was a particularly early one for a few keen students. Justin, Emma, and Kirsten were up at 4am with Mr Barrett to head over to the Coliseum for some amazing sunrise photos. By 7 am the early risers had joined another traveling group of students from Canada in Rome for some yoga and frisbee. At 10am the rest of the group joined up just outside the Vatican to begin the days group activities. First on the docket was a walk along Via Cola di Rienzo where the locals shop, to Piazza del Popolo. At the Piazza students broke off in to a couple of groups for different activities and lunch. The largest group followed Mr Audia up to Pincio park where they rented segways to zoom around the park on. After lunch it was on to the remarkable preserved and enormous Pantheon. It’s domed roof was, and continues to be, an architectural marvel. Evening was spent around the Piazza Navona area where students enjoyed a pasta dinner and some final souvenir shopping and gelato. Thankfully, we lucked out again and the rain held off for us. We return now exhausted to the the hotel but confident that we made the most of our Roman Holiday. Tomorrow we leave the hotel at 10am for an early afternoon flight home.
