I got home from Rome late on Tuesday night, to some stormy weather.The next day, one of our buses picked me up at the hotel in the early morning, and we made our way to the pier in Civitavecchia.As the group came off the ship, we loaded up the buses and took everyone into Rome for a city tour.Even though bad weather was predicted, we have had some very nice, sunny weather.We had two days in Fort Lauderdale, staying at the Embassy Suites Hotel. The next day, most of our group had a tour of Flamingo Gardens and some free time at Las Olas, Fort Lauderedales old Downtown.
