Ferry, Ancona and Rome!

We were delayed for the ferry but we had a good ride and arrived in Ancona couple hours late!
We then drove couple hours (in the rain) and reached our destination Roma!
Checked in our comfortable but quite expensive hotel, parked the car ($40 a day) and then we went on our first day exploring this stunning city!
June 2nd is the national day in Italy creating a real good situation for us since most of locals deserted the city....we loved it! It was cool and sunny and perfect for urban discovery!
Next day was back to normal and we encounter a combo of Disney world and Las Vegas that I personnaly dislike a lot!
The boys and I took as much lines and crowd as we took and called it quit while leaving Mum Carol in the Vatican!
Instead, I rented a classic vespa and took boys for runs in Roma!
Carol was exhausted after the Sistine Chapel but very happy of her sight seeing day!
Tomorrow we will to move up north to Tuscany for some serious culture....MotoGP at Mugello! LOL
