Goodbye to Rome ; hello Assisi we are moving tomorrow April 29, 2015

It rained all day today so it was good that I had purchased a ticket to the Borghese Museum and Gallery (note to anyone coming to Rome and wanting to go to this museum, buy your ticket online at least 1 week before you want to go, they were sold out until the first week of May). I had only 2 hours to see this extensive collection of Roman sculpture, Bernini statues

( exquisite), and paintings ( including Raphael and Caravaggio) . I was in art heaven .  David decided to see the gardens and ride the little train around the grounds while I was inside.  Here are a couple of photos of some of the art that I saw.borghese museum thorn foot smallborghese museum 2 nymphs small

Tomorrow we leave Rome by train and go to Assisi.  This is the home of St. Francis of Assisi.  We will be here for 3 days while we wait for the apartment in Florence to be ready for us to move in.  I will probably not post anything for tomorrow as it wlll be a busy time.  We have had a great and educational time in Roma.
