We arrived Rome on the 17th of September coming from Desenzano del Garda. I nice trip on the high speed train from Verona. Our apartment is next to Campo de Fiore. This location has enabeled us to walk about 70 miles ( according to my pedometer app) since we arrived. To me this is the way to see the city. St. Peter’s, to the Ghetto we have been able to see so much.
We have seen the museums, visited the ancient ruins, but most importantly is to have interacted with the people we need. We sat down to dinner last night and began talking to the couple next to us. They were celebrating the twenty fifth wedding anniversary and just arrived from Wales. Just before they left an young man sat down next to us who was an ambassador from Belize to The Holy See, and another long conversation began.
We enjoy being centrally located with our favorite trattoria just steps from our Airbnb apartment. Being in the same place for so long enables us to get to know some of the shop keepers and vendors. It makes it feel like home.
Our trip will be over in a few more days, Many more posts will come from the many photos my wife Angela, and I have taken on our trip. We will have been in Italy for seven weeks, taking us from the beaches of Sicily to the shores of Lake Garda and finally to Rome. Close to two thousand photos and visdeos will give us a number memories to share.
