Italy 2016 - Day 9

How much is there to see in Rome?  A TON!!!  (And we took a shot at seeing most of it!).  The incredible Colosseum tour, the Forum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Piazza Novona, Piazza di Spagna (and many other piazzas) and tons of churches (everywhere we turned!)

 An amazing day in a wonderful city!  Tonight we had to our Farewell Dinner and then tomorrow we had home with new friends and wonderful memories.  Viva Italia!

Our special guests were from the University of Granada's GRIIS Program - the one Stonehill has a partnership with for our students to spend a semester.  Amalia and Teresa work for GRIIS and they coordinated a lovely walk down the Avenido de Constitucion with Jessica '14 and Elyse '14 as well as Sara '12 (who has returned to Granada for a year after graduation to get post-graduate work done).  All five of them were welcoming and informative.  We saw some of the university and heard some history of the city, and some current facts as well:  300,000 people live in the city but 100,000 are students!!  This was apparent as the whole city has a college-town feel to it.
