Thanks Luigi.

I'm also sorry I didn't get to the Church. I probably should have skipped a little side trip to the catacombs, which would have guaranteed me the free time I needed to get there. I mistakenly thought we had more free time in Rome, but we didn't. It was quite the adventure trying to get there though. I told Fr. Joseph the story, and he laughed and appreciated our efforts in trying to make it there.

Someday, I'm going back there, (without the 65 HS girls!!!) because there is so much to take in and see. I'd like to do a more adult themed tour where the pace is abit more relaxed and there is more free time! Heck, in spite of the good food and wine I lost 6 or 7 lbs. on this trip!

Hmmm, but then there is Southern Italy.....

You have to see Capri. It's absolutely stunning. Sorrento is great, too.

Best story (I may have told it before). We were in Sorrento on honeymoon. Sightseeing, then realized that we only had a few minutes for lunch. Popped into an empty restaurant (it was only 11AM) and they seated us right away. We were eating with the family that owned the restaurant. It was fantastic.

Sounds like a typical Italian story! They are a very welcoming people.

I visited Sorrento when I was stationed in Sardinia, and I really think it might be one of the most beautiful spots on earth. I will get back there someday, no doubt. And Capri ain't to shabby either!
