After a three-night stay in Moscow, the Obamas touched down in Rome on Wednesday so Papa President could attend the G-8 Summit in L'Aquila July 8th to July 10th.
Upon arrival, the first couple was greeted by Italian President Giorgio Napolitano and his wife Clio Napolitano at Rome's Quirinale Palace. Mrs. Obama looked resplendent in a yellow frock, offset by a green ceramic flower brooch, and two-tone pumps. When the Obamas departed Moscow earlier in the day, the first lady and her daughters all wore red.
Later on, Mrs. Obama gathered with the other G8 wives toured the Capitoline Museum in Rome while Sasha and Malia ventured out for gelato with First Granny Marian Robinson. Later on, all the Obama women visited the Colosseum. Photos below.
