There was excitement in the air as we checked-in to our hotel in Rome, but students were also sad that this was the final destination on our tour.
After freshening up, we started our visit with a walking tour of some of the classic Roman site: the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.
Time was on our side because we arrived at the top of the 138 steps, that connect the Trinita Dei Monti and the lower Piazza di Spagna, right at sunset. What a way to begin our adventures in this ancient city!
We made our way to the bottom of the steps, at which point the students embraced the Roman practice of fountain drinking.
In and out of the tiny streets, the group arrived at the majestic Trevi Fountain, at which point all of the wonderful photo taking and coin tossing ensued.
Our first walk ended in true Italian fashion: with gelato of course.
