Hello Readers! I'm Anne, and I will be blogging with Chris on the Italy Structures Trip. We arrived in Rome yesterday at 9 am after an 8 hour flight from Charlotte, NC! After checking into our hotel, we started exploring Rome, "The Eternal City".

We started out visiting beautiful landmarks near our hotel, St. Peter's Square, and then onto the Fontana di Trevi (Trevi Fountain) The huge fountain was designed by Nicola Salvi, and is a whimsical rendition of Neptune on his chariot of sea horses! We all got a chance to ensure our chances of throwing coming back to the "City of Fountains" by throwing coins in for good luck!

We then visited the Pantheon, the largest standing unreinforced concrete dome in the world, built in AD 120. Finally, we ended our tour with some Gelato and by enjoying the warmth of the Spanish Steps in the Corso and Spagna section of the city.

The weather is great and all is well here in Rome!

Ciao,

Annie

  1. Herve Leger, sometimes deliberately written as Herve Leger is a French fashion house founded by the designer Herve Peugnet, also known as Herve L. Leroux Herve Leger Dresses was founded in 1985 by the designer Herve Peugnet (1957–2017). The same year Karl Lagerfeld advised Peugnet that his surname Peugnet would be too difficult for Americans, the target market, to pronounce, and instead suggested the surname Leger. Having lost the rights to the Herve Leger name, Peugnet later took a third "brand" name as Sexy Sailor Herve Leger in 2000.A model walking the runway at Herve Leger Fringe Dress Fall/Winter 2014 show at New York Fashion Week, February 2014.
