More Roman skies

Day 2 in Rome brought more blue sky, with little moments of grey…but that is OK too.

The day began at the Trevi Fountain.

  5. Thankyou Debra, our recent holiday to Italy is kept fresh and real through your comments and photo’s. Almost feel as if we are there with you! Sorry that we didn’t have a lot of time to chat at the Ponte piazza, things kept us quite busy, got back to Oz very tired! We have a lot of family on both sides of the family there and had too little time. Well there is always next time, so keep the wonderful job that you are doing with your website coming!

    • Rome is a great city to walk in. It is mostly flat and the distances are not great between fabulous things. I always walk when I am in the city.

  7. Thanks for more wonderful pictures. Makes me wish it were already fall of 2015 when I hope I can return to my favorite city. Appreciated the help of where pictures were taken. I didn’t think of Via Babuino. But I did think to myself that could be the Anglican church.
