Hi Michelle ~ I love your pictures - the top one is great and gives us a perfect image of Italy.

I was in Rome in '77, so 30 years ago is a little hard for me to remember actually. I was with a group, and Rome was the only city we toured, unfortunately. It was a two-day stop after a longer stay in Israel.

We visited the Coliseum and the catacombs. My favorite place (believe it or not, and this I do remember) was down inside the old dungeon where the Apostle Paul was a prisoner. Our group sang acapella, "My Jesus I Love Thee." It was beautiful and haunting. I will never forget standing there.

Sounds like you had a marvelous time! I wish I could go back. I think I'd visit Tuscany.
