SUMMER  2017

On August 9th, Stella and I flew from Boston on Alitalia to Rome.
 We were met by a represntative from
Celebrity Cruise Lines
who drove us to the Empire Pallace Hotel in Rome where we stayed before the cruise.
As we arrived, we were met by Mary and Lou, who had arrived earlier that day from Washington.
An hour later, Renato and Biota arrived from Lisbon.
 We all had lunch together in the hotel and later that afternoon, we left the hotel on foot to enjoy the surrounding area.
 At the Piazza della Republica we had dinner and continued back to the hotel.
