Piazza del Campidoglio

We ended up finding an adorable little lunch spot at a place called Ba Ghetto in the Jewish Quarter - it was one of the yummiest places I have ever eaten and it was all Kosher too! Piazza del Campidoglio, or Capitoline Hill, is one of the seven hills of Rome. And it really is a big, big hill with so many steps to get up.
To be honest, we had no clue what was up at the top of the hill, we were just kind of wandering around, and saw these big, deep stairs. It seemed to take forever to get to the top, and there were tons of people around - lots and lots of tour groups! It was designed by Michealangelo, and while the buildings
were all super pretty, we didn't go in any of them. Some were museums and I think another took the places of an art museum and another a city hall. We saw some weddings happening too! We saw this pretty bridge/hallway walkover, and when we stopped to take a photo and pose,
we realised there was another walk way to go down, to the other side of the hill. It was there we could see this beautiful view of Rome! It seems like there were really quite a few good spots to overlook the city - I really couldnt get over it!
