Once we got checked in and dropped our stuff off it was time to go exploring a bit. We decided to go get two of the Roma Passes, which include the cost of all public transportation for 3 days, two museum entries for free with reduced rates for any after that, and special entrances that skip the gigantic lines. All of that was completely worth the 34 euros each that we paid for them. While looking at the map and walking around, we noticed a lot of monument arches around the city center; seems to be their favorite method for commemorating events.
We also found a few diferrent flowering things that had some good smells and some interesting looks to them, including an artichoke that was in bloom.
We then went out to an African restaurant called Ristorante Africa, that had some great food and some really interesting chairs and decoration choices. Definitely worth a visit as there are many reasons that it has a 4/5 on trip advisor.
And some very interestingly carved chairs.
Then it was back to the hotel to get some more couch requests out and to get some rest for the next morning.
