We have been to Rome before and it's one of our all time favorite destinations. This time it was just a little different. We still visited most of the historical sites and had a wonderful lunch at a great cafe.
However, as we we were happily reliving old memories, there were a large group of protesters burning cars and throwing bricks at the police. We were happy to jump on a shuttle bus and head back to our hotel at the airport where we would be departing in the morning for the US.
Traveling is great but sometimes going home is even better.
