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.

    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!

    Italy is another place I’d love to visit someday. So much history and wonderful art and architecture!

      Yes, it’s a wonderful country from that point of view.

    We were going to Rome last year but had to cancel as I hadn’t been well and needed a more relaxing holiday. One day…..

      That’s a shame. It’s definitely not relaxing though – you need a lot of energy to see everything.

    Another Rome-lover here. Exceeded my expectations.

      It’s just amazing, isn’t it? So much history. I love visiting Roman ruins here too, but of course we have nothing as grand as the Colisseum!


I'd love to hear what you think!
