Our trip to Italy was quite an adventure. Note to travelers: It rains in October. We stayed dry in Rome, but the rest of our trip was quite a soggy mess. So much so, that we had to cancel a stop in Venice (they were in 5 extra feet of water!).

Rome, the capital of Italy, is amazing and an absolute must-see for anyone traveling to Italy. There are many things to do in Rome and a family could spend a week exploring new things every day. We only had a couple of days, but were armed with a plan that allowed us to view the city’s highlights and nfl picks 2014. Here is a list of what to do when in Rome…
