From  ancient Rome, the triple arch of Constantine was built to celebrate the victory of Constantine over the Emperor Maxentius 312 A.D. and the transition of Rome from the pagan to the Christian world.

There are many convents  that offer accommodation in Rome. We stayed at "Il Rosario" very near the Coliseum on our first visit. The sisters had a wonderful machine that dispensed many  kinds of Italian coffees and hot chocolate for the guests. During our 2002 visit, we stayed at "Casa Beata Margherita Canani."  It was a delightful experience and very convenient to the metro and the Vatican.

 

 

"La Frutteria" was found close to the Vatican. The displays in food shops in Italy are always works of art.

 

                  

 

 

Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast

 

      My husband I have been fortunate to visit Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast many times. The views of the Bay of Napoli, the scent of the lemon trees, the wonderful food and the kind hearts of the people, are my fondest memories.
