I’ve been on a sixteen-day research trip to Italy working on THE PEARL BROOCH, a renaissance time travel romance set in 1600. We landed in Rome where we spent five days before traveling on to Florence, Venice and Milan.
3-hour Rome tour and delivery to hotel: My first breathtaking “look” at Rome, came from atop one of its hills, followed by highlights of Rome historical sites.
Exclusive Breakfast at the Vatican with Early Access to Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel: After breakfast with a small group, we boarded an open-air bus and drove through the absolutely gorgeous gardens and heard stories about the history. The garden tour was followed by a tour of the Museums, Sistine Chapel and Raphael’s Rooms and St. Peter’s Basilica.

Tomorrow, I’ll share more pictures from Rome.
