When we got back to the hotel, we decided that we couldn't stay there. We found another one nearby that was excellent. We had not unpacked, so we checked out of the first. It was old and dirty and smelled like cigarette smoke. The name of the hotel was Hotel King. We had to pay for one night, even though we didn't stay. That cost us $218.00.
The hotel we found that was really nice was called Hotel Cecil. It was a privately owned hotel with a wonderful staff and a great continental breakfast. We stayed there for 3 nights.
The next morning, I went to see the "Ecstasy of Santa Teresa" in the church of Sta Maria della Vittoria. Since it was Sunday, I stayed for mass, and later took pictures. I took Kathy back for the evening mass, so she could see it.

We had a lovely dinner that evening at a restaurant by the Bernini Neptune fountain.
The next day, we went to the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, and the Pantheon.
We had dinner at the Piazza Navona in front of the Bernini fountain of the four rivers.
On Tuesday, May 27th, we flew to Paris.
