Well, this is the last in my Rome Series and I want to take you around town a little bit and share some more photos with you that I took during my trip in November 2004. I just cannot believe it is more than 10 years ago; I can still remember stepping off the plane (you know, the small ones where you step down the stairs onto the tarmac) and the warm air hitting me. We were very lucky with the weather, it was a balmy 15C with no rain in sight; unlike at home at that time where it rained cats and dogs. I remember phoning home whilst sitting in a small bistro in a small side street behind the Vatican; sunglasses on, jacket on the chair and a gelato in front of me and my husband telling me how wet and grey it was at home. To say that he was jealous would be an understatement.
I loved walking around Rome’s ancient streets, you never knew what you would discover (well, unless you had a map, which might have given you a clue I guess). One of my favourite places was Piazza Navona, it is full of people, cafes and artists having set up their easels and working on their paintings. I just loved the vibe in that space, it is just perfect for people watching.
So here, in no particular order are some more of my favourite places and spaces.
