Rome (July 2007)  
Posted by Richard on Sunday 22nd July 2007 at 10:43 PM

Carpe diem! With Adam and Mark on school trips, Laura and I headed for Rome.

Only two nights away, but with an early departure and late return, we had three long days in this most extraordinary city. Without the bambini we walked miles, looked round churches, museums and piazzas, and walked some more. Fantastic!

From the Spanish Steps ...   
Posted by Richard on Tuesday 24th July 2007 at 01:46 AM

Our hotel, the Valadier, was just below Piazza del Popolo and a short walk from Piazza di Spagna. Click here to view this Page



... to the Trevi Fountain   
Posted by Richard on Tuesday 24th July 2007 at 01:47 AM

From the river Tiber we continued our meandering tour through the city, taking in the sites - Castel Sant'Angelo, Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Farnese, Palazzo Spada and the Trevi Fountain. Click here to view this Page



The Roman Forum

Day two was reserved for the ancient city. We took a taxi to the Piazza Venezia (overshadowed by the immense Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele II), and made our way to the Roman Forum via Piazza del Campidoglio. Click here to view this Page



The Palatino and Colosseum

The Palatino rises above the Forum to the south. More remarkable 2000 year-old survivors and a bit of peace and quiet. Click here to view this Page



San Clemente and San Giovanni in Laterano   
Posted by Richard on Tuesday 24th July 2007 at 01:50 AM

San Clemente, a quarter of a mile from the Colosseum, is an incredible opportunity to walk through history ... working your way down from the 12th-century church through a 5th-century church to a 2nd-century Mithraic temple. Click here to view this Page



Rome by night   
Posted by Richard on Tuesday 24th July 2007 at 01:49 AM

On our second evening we headed back to the Campo de' Fiori for a meal and retraced our steps back to the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and the Piazza del Popolo. Click here to view this Page



The Vatican Museums

Day three was for Vatican City. The queue for the Vatican Museums must have been a mile long - no exageration! Amazingly, it took less than an hour to get to the entrance. Click here to view this Page



St Peter's Basilica

Last stop on our whistle-stop tour was St. Peter's Basilica and the Piazza. Click here to view this Page
