Firstly Blogger has stopped the slideshow! Given I have posted loads of photos..... :(
For those who missed all the posts.
Day 1 - The journey there, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps
Day 2 - The Vatican, Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums, Piazza Navona, Pantheon
Day 3 - Borghesi Gardens, Campo de Fiore, Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain
Day 4 - Colosseum, Forum and Capatline Museums
Day 5 - Lots of churches and stunning views!
So what did I think of Rome? The architecture was amazing! Walking the streets great fun, loved the Piazza's.
I found Roman food disappointing compared to Paris. In Paris you stop and get a decent lunch, in Rome it was much harder. Any chance of a decent Sandwich? On the last day we found a good coffee shop Caffeteria Del Corso on the Corso Vittorio Emmanuelle II which did good cake. Ice Creams were good.
The Vatican and Museums are amazing but way too crowded. You just can't appreciate what you see. There are some amazing churches.
Places like the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain get busy so get up early! Take a walk in the Borghesi gardens. It is pretty and you can get get good views of the city.
Walk! it is a beautiful city get out and enjoy it! It is a pity though the amount of graffiti you see.
Of my three Foreign Cities it goes above Paris and below Florence (I love the compact size and lack of cars!).
