Walking to Meet the Pope
Wow!, ancient Rome, before Hannibal of course, must have been an exciting place to live. Modern Rome is no less absorbing. Although the volume of automobile, truck and motor scooter traffic is unbelievable. Rome is another of my 50 mile cities since I have walked that distance and more on several trips to this high energy place. Typically I stay at a hotel Plazza di Spagna right above the famous Spanish Steps. Outside nearby the Pantheon still reaches toward heaven to proclaim the glory of Rome.
