Had s really nice day in Rome.

Angelo was a real gentleman. We started our tour by a Sicilian breakfast. He showed me the best of Rome and told me many interesting stories of the Roman history. I saw places that I would have not found by myself. I got tips to do for the rest of my vacation and had a nice lunch at Trastevere. I felt like a real Roman for a day.
