From our wonderful hotel, centrally based just off the Campo de'Fiori we've explored markets... with their fabulous displays of fruit and vegetables
We've discovered the most amazing archeological ruins whilst wandering around streets off the beaten track...
as well as visiting some better known archeological sites.
We've sat and eaten gelato by fountains (and thrown some pennies in to ensure our return)
We've crossed bridges, some which have stood since 62 BC
We've seen churches and basilica, the beauty and scale of which cannot be descibed.
We've enjoyed the most amazing food... pizza, pasta and my favourite "Carciofo alla Roma"
Not to mention il vino... rosso...
After three days of glorious sunshine our last day saw some typical November weather for Rome... and we queued for one and a half hours in pouring rain to get into the Vatican museums
