A visit to San Luigi dei Francesi designed by Giacomo della Porta and built between 1518 and 1589 was followed by an extended lunch in the beautiful and famous square, Piazza Navona, which is right near-by, where the boys admired masterpieces by Bernini, della Porta, and Borromini.
At the Colosseum, Flavian Amphitheatre, on day two, after hearing Coach Morales' incredible history of sports lecture, the group realized they'd been "robbed." A few passports and travelers checks were stolen. Everything, though, is under control. Families affected have all been contacted. Checks and passports are being replaced. All are healthy and in great spirits. Ah, the excitement of Rome!
