The Spanish Steps

After this church, we were hungry!! Our crappy earlier meal, combined with all that walking around while looking up definitely worked up our appetites. Using our handy dandy National Geographic map, we decided to walk towards the Spanish Steps area to find a restaurant. We came upon a beautiful building guarded by men with machine guns, and a set of steps. I asked Ethan if these were the Spanish Steps, but he didn't think so--they didn't look familiar. But, walking down them....we discovered that we were in fact at the very top of the Spanish steps, so we continued to the bottom and took some pictures. Looking back at Ethan's pictures from Rome in 2006, there was a ton of scaffolding over that beautiful building at the top, which is why it didn't look familiar to him.
