Our plane coming up to the terminal at Ben-Gurion Airport. I was a little late with the camera, and missed the front. Darn.
From Fiumicino airport, we took a train to Rome's Termini station, in the city center.
Bad night shot of a modern hotel in Rome with snazzy black fire escapes
Olive selection at a Roman supermarket. Tasty.
Endless arches at the Termini station. We rented a car here in the morning and set off.
Scenery along the highway
Sheep
The highways are tolled, and this is where you pick up a ticket after getting on.
One of maybe 800 beautiful old villages we passed
