Now we are back from a 4 day visit 18 years later, kind of a second honeymoon ;-))
What a wonderful hectic few days we had and such lovely blue sky weather too.
Thanks to Sara (Sarita76) for meeting with us on our arrival in Rome and giving us a
lovely walking tour of some of the sights in Rome and enjoying a delicious ice-cream.
Hugs to you Sara!.
We've still only scatched the surface of Rome but this page attempts to shows our
impressions of this lovely city.
The Bocca della Verita - the mouth of Truth made a change from me puting my foot in it. But what did I say about Richie or Steve and did this old drain cover bite my hand if I told a lie as legend dictates...???
Rome is somewhere you always neeed more tiime for. We had just a few days and I know there are must see things we had to miss - like the catacombs - due to time constraints. Here is a brief summary of out sightseeing:
afternoon meeting with Sara - Barberini, Spanish steps, Piazza Popopl, Pincio, Trevi and Quirnale hill.
Colesseum, Palantine Hill, Forum, Capitoline Hill, Piazza Venezia, Trajan markets, Pirimide, Bocca della Verita, Teatro di Marcello and Trastevere.
Vatican, Castel Sant'Agnelo, Janiculum Hill, old historic centre of Rome for Piazza Navone and pantheon etc.. Trastevere in the evening.
a contrast was a trip to Tivoli - the town itself and the two villas nearby.
- Pros:great weather, food and history, friendly people
- Cons:the traffic is chaotic and noisy
- In a nutshell:a great city break
To visit the Interior of Hadrians Mausoleum you first go down a slope to the lower levels and then gradually climb up... more travel advice
