A Week In Rome (is not long enough)

Rome, "The Eternal City". And what a city! We've recently returned from a sightseeing visit to Rome.

The last time we visited Rome was 30 years ago. And, as we then threw our coins over our shoulders into the Trevi fountain, we always knew we would return. So, when our son expressed an interest in seeing the Roman sites, we decided now was the time to do it.

As we always do whenever we plan a trip, we do our research...a lot! Where to stay, what to see, best time to see, what to eat, where to eat, etc. But, apart from the itinerary we had pre-booked, all that planning may as well have been thrown out of the taxi window on our way into the city.

There is SO much to see. Apart from the obvious places, like the Colosseum, The Forum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and the Vatican, around every corner, there is something else calling to be investigated. And then there is all the food and the coffee (amazing coffee).

We soon discovered that the only way to see Rome was by foot (we walked over 64 miles in six days). We also learned that there is no "best time" to see anything because, unless you go in the middle of the night, there will always be crowds. So, embrace the busyness, and enjoy Rome for what it is - a discovery around every corner.

Here are a few of the images I shot in Rome.
