When In Rome.

Last week we went to visit family in Rome, we have been waiting since 2020 to go, it was well worth the wait. Rome is such an amazing place, there’s so much to see and do.

One thing you definitely need in Rome is comfortable walking shoes, we walked between 9 and 12 miles each day. We broke up the distance with some people watching and an aperitivo, what’s not to like about an Aperol spritz and bruschetta. The food is amazing, delicious pasta, gelato and pizza. I loved the lighter, crisp, oval Roman pizza called pinsa, which is probably where the word pizza originates.

We planned ahead and booked the hop on hop off Green bus, Colosseum, Forum and Villa Borghese tickets online which saved a lot of queuing. One piece of valuable advice I was given is if you pass a church have a look inside as you don’t know what great artwork you might find.

Rome is an exceptional place, I can’t really find the words so I will let my photos do the talking, if you remember the film Roman Holiday with Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn you might recognise some of these photos. Click on the image to see in full. Enjoy!

Unfortunately not long after coming home we tested positive for Covid, I suppose it had to happen sometime. Fortunately we are ok.

I can’t wait until we visit Rome again, there’s so much more to see and do.
