Rome

There really is no city like it.If you have just one day or one month in Rome you'll never be able to explore all of its treasures!




lunch!cones of artichoke fritters


fritters of every kind and beer-perfect


outside the Pantheon with Guides


Che Bello!

For me The Pantheon is up there in the top 5 sights to see.I'd not relised that the painter Raphael has his tomb there and its easy to miss with the crowds pressing in.

What I love about th Pantheon is that it makes it possible to understand what the buildings on the forum must have looked like before their marble was 'looted' by the various Popes to enhance the Vatican!The colours of the different marbles mut have presented a truly amazing sight when you entered a building.

If you are inside the Pantheon when snow is falling through the circular opening the effect is said to be very moving .we missed snow by 10 days and it was clear and sunny when we visted.
