Rome was the first city we visited. It reminded me of New York in its business but of nothing American in its deep historical roots. The Vatican Museum was especially impressive and austere. There are pictures from the ironically-named Spanish steps, the Roman forum (those are the night pictures), the Pantheon, some arches, Michelangelo's Pieta, the Colosseum (yes, that's really how you spell it), and a lizard.
