World Trip 2006: Day 78 – Rome, Italy

Today was so very hot I felt the smog of the city for the first time and cut my time in the city down to a few hours.   I did however visit San Giovanni Church, the official seat of the Pope as ‘Bishop of Rome’ and the former headquarters of the Catholic Church before the Vatican.

The Church was the first Basilica built in the city for the Catholic Church in the 4th century and is very impressive.   I also visited a section of the old city wall.   After experiencing the Roman siesta (things closed during the middle of the day) I headed back to the safety of the campsite pool and stayed there until I watched the Germany’s beat Poland on the big screen.
