The Pantheon...and Our Favorite Restaurant Nearby!

Roma is filled with such a beautiful network of cute Italian streets!  Each is filled with beautiful architecture, tall windows without glass that are framed by brown shutters, and cobblestone streets.  Michael did a most excellent job navigating the entire time we were there!  I could have never gotten around without him.

Here's a picture of us at the Pantheon.  It was neat to finally BE AT the place that my 7th grade students learn about!

Shortly thereafter, we would encounter what would become our favorite restaurant, Antica Trattoria da Pietro al Pantheon.  We ate at a table right there in the street and stayed until Midnight!  It was so romantic.  (In fact, we would love our time there so much that we would return to it before leaving Italy, and the owner would joyfully recognize and hug us!)

Here we are again, back at our favorite place!
