Fact of the Day: Palace

The English word palace is derived from Palatine Hill in Rome, Italy. Palatine Hill was an ancient site where Emperors of the Roman Empire had lived.

  4. We visited there when the ship went to Naples (Rome is only two hours away by Il Treno). There were a LOT of cats. And the place was a mess. You'd think they'd tidy up if they were expecting visitors. But, I guess they wouldn't have known. Because they were dead. Well, that answers my question.
    Still a lot of cats, though.
