Roma! There's nothing quite like the visit in Rome. While Thessaloniki's ruins lace the city, Rome has preserved their structures well by using them as museums, active churches, and hang-out sites.
Most of the modern architecture has been modeled to coordinate their basilicas and structures.
First stop-- pizza and gelato! It is of the Bacaling family tradition to sneak away and buy ice cream.
We got our cousin JB to show us the ropes-- roman style! Rachel has not seen him in about 9 years and it was such a joy for Nash to meet him.
Our first day was a tad overwhelming as well as tiring, so we got a preview of the city center and drove back to the community that housed us for the next 5 days. <3
