R is for Rome

We stayed in Rome for a few nights in 2003, en route to a walking holiday in Umbria (for the end point of that holiday, see G is for Gubbio). We packed a lot into four days – these are just a few of the things we saw.


  1. Very nice photos! Rome is such an old and cultured city, it´s difficult to capture everything with only one visit. I think the best time to go is either in the spring or fall – that way you avoid the massive tourist rushes, and the weather is neither bitterly cold nor oppressively hot and humid. Hope you enjoyed your stay all those years ago!


    • Thank you. You are probably right about the timings, but as people who work, or worked, for universities, spring and fall are not currently open to us for major travelling!
