The Roamin' Roman

Benvenuto! You have happened upon the blog of a wandering Catholic American college student studying for a year in Rome, the Eternal City. You will find here my pontifications, ruminations, reflections, images, and ponderings on my life in Rome. Ciao!

Friday, April 21

Loreto - yes, we went yesterday, and it took us ALL DAY. It was worth it, but then again I'm a nutty college kid... I wouldn't really recommend doing Loreto as a day trip from Rome, unless you are as nutty as we are and understand what you're getting into! However, if you are planning a trip to Venice, or on a pilgrimage along the eastern side of Italy, you really should include Loreto in your travel plans as it is easily accessible from the Venice/Bologna area.

Anyway, this is a shot of our first sight of our reason for coming all the way here - coming through the archway into the central piazza, at the other end is the beautiful basilica containing the Holy House of Mary.
