Since then, we've been all over Rome and environs, riding buses and subways in various degrees of crowds. Jamie and I have managed to get some baseball in here and there, having a catch with some friends here at the Villa Doria Pamphili and in the park behind the Castel Sant'Angelo. We have taken two trips out of the city as well, a bus ride to Assisi and yesterday a train trip to Ostia Antica. The boys were troopers on both. They complained some of the time, particularly as we ascended to the highest point in Assisi, the Rocca Maggiore. Once we got up there though, they discovered the joys of a medieval fort and had a great time running around. Jamie loved climbing the teeny spiral staircase to the top of the tower. Connor was OK going up, but not so happy coming down. So was Sarah for that matter.
Yesterday at Ostia Antica was amazing. Huge site, basically a complete Roman settlement. We were there for about 4 hours, had a delicious lunch that we brought of salami and/or cheese sandwiches and got to explore at well. Very hot.
