Three Days in Rome Day 3

Day Three was our last day in Rome and we tried to take it easy after our long day of walking (and getting lost) the day before. 

The day started off with a visit to Tempio Maggiore di Roma, or the Roman synagogue. It is located within the Jewish section of Rome and the place where the old Jewish Ghetto once stood (not in the Nazi sense, but in the Medieval times when Jews were segregated from Christians by orders of The Church in some cities).

Unfortunately, you aren't allowed in the Temple without paying for a tour, unless you're praying--so I opted to pop in and take a look at the collection before popping out and skipped the Temple. Also unfortunately, pictures were not allowed in the museum, even though there were some beautiful Torah covers dating back to the 17th century in addition clothing and furniture from Jewish homes throughout history. I can't find any photos online, so I guess you'll just have to visit to see it yourself (which is a bit of a shame since not everyone can get to Rome!).

After that, we got on the Hop On Hop Off bus and took a ride around all of the city's major tourist attractions, though I couldn't get a lot of good pictures due to the uneven streets and odd angles. Here are my failed attempts:

We got off at the Spanish Steps (again, not a great photo) where we browsed all sorts of fashion houses we can't afford before going back to the hotel for our last night.

We ate some gorgeous pizza that evening at a little pizzeria near the Colosseum, but we have no idea of the name. A little pizzeria near the Colosseum narrows pretty much nothing down...
