Our last day in Rome—
Ciao Campo de Fiori with all your beautiful fragrant flowers
and your fresh colorful produce.
Arrivederci Borghese Gallery with your canvases of Caravaggio, Raphael, Corregio, Titian, and Bernini statues that live and breathe and move and struggle.
Arrivederci Victor Emmanuel Monument, old friend and guide.
Ciao vino, the perfect complement to perfect meals.
We’re going home.
