Roma days 1 and 2 - the whirlwind walking tour

I just got back from my wonderful 2 1/2 day whirlwind trip to ROMA with my friend Jean. We arrived on Sunday, 6 February mid-day and set foot in this truly amazing and historic city and we were blown away. There are no words to describe Rome. At any moment, you may stumble upon a 2000 year old structure or a 500 year old building that stops you dead in your tracks and leaves you shaking your head at the wonderment of it all.

Jean and I walked the city for a day and a half and saw as much as possible. On our third day in Rome we took a guided tour of the Vatican and explored the inside of the Castel Sant'Angelo and the Coloseum. Below are the photos from day one and two.
