A couple of Phoenicians living temporarily in Roma

Chiesa de St. Ignazio

Chiesa de St. Ignazio

Yesterday I took Michael sightseeing to Piazza Navona and to the Pantheon. We bought a wonderful original painting of the Roman skyline from an artist in Piazza Navona. It will fit perfectly in the hallway in the house in Phoenix and will be a sweet reminder of our time here in Roma.

As we wandered from the Pantheon to Via de Corso, we found ourselves in a piazza where we stopped to take in a cafe scene. It was past the lunch hour, but this cafe was still full of diners, soaking up the afternoon sun. Opposite the cafe, was a large church with it’s doors open. Someone told Michael we should go inside, and we did. We found ourselves inside Chiesa de St. Ignazio, an amazing church with multiple chapels, a frescoed ceiling, a few tombs, and remarkable artwork.

That’s one of the wonderful things about Roma. There are so many nooks and crannies…plain facades that hide great treasures inside.
