Things to Note:

We had a kitchenette in our hotel room, so we kept breakfast items on hand.

On monuments day we were out the door by 6am to beat the crowds and the heat.

We watched the forecast for rain to determine which day we would go to the monuments and which would be museums.

Museum day was a sleep in day since the museums don’t open until 10:00.

We used Uber only a handful of times. Otherwise we walked everywhere. Our hotel was located in the perfect spot for walking.

Wear comfortable shoes! You will be walking a lot.

Keep a light rain jacket on hand.

Stay hydrated!
