It rained a good amount while we were in the Eternal City. Of course nobody packed an umbrella. There were plenty of street vendors to provide tourists with umbrellas. The going price for umbrellas was two for five euros. I, of course, being a financial wizard paid five euros for one. Our esteemed president was able to haggle the vendors down to three for six, I believe. If you are in Rome, don't expect to be bringing these umbrellas home. You'd be lucky if they lasted three days. They are the FIAT of umbrellas. Caveat Emptor.
