We also saw the Parliament buildings and we ended up in Piazza Navona where the Fountain of 4 Rivers is located, the famous Bernini fountain.
A quick ride back to the train station and we were back in Civitavecchia by 6:00. It was hot but the tour guide did an amazing job of keeping us in the shade. I was able to buy a frozen water bottle at the Trevi fountain and that was wonderful at keeping me from overheating. I can’t imagine trying to see that all on my own and I was so glad that I had gone for this excursion. I look forward to going back to Rome and being able to see things again as it did not really seem like I was there.
