I found him, we got a good aerobic workout in running to the gate which was a ways away, and we boarded sweating like we'd been to the gym.
We arrived in Rome, found our luggage easily and went out to find our ride. Nobody there. We waited and waited, finally I went up to another driver a woman and asked her if she knew of this tour company that we had hired to drive us. She very sweetly called him, and said he was at another terminal. He came quickly and after a five minute walk, we were at the van which took us on a white knuckle drive through Rome.
Our hotel is lovely. The artwork is out of this world, the grounds are lovely and all I want to do is go to bed. Two hours of sleep on the plane just isn't cutting it! We are going to meet for a bite to eat at 5:00 and hope I don't do a face plant in my meal.
Here are some views of the hotel, and around it. Tomorrow Vatican City.
