Fall 2022 Italy always includes time in Rome
When travel restrictions were lifted, we made a bee-line for a 2021 Rome visit, now we return in 2022. It really is an annual affair.
Sunday is always a day to walk down to the busy Piazza Popolo to get the feel of Rome.
Life in Rome
While there are plenty of tourists in Rome, the city is not just about tourists.
Rome is all about Vespas!
Rome is all about the bikes. Be careful as you walk across the streets!
The tourists are back!
We are not expecting the streets to be as open as they were last year. It is getting back to normal!
Evenings in Rome
Rome is a great place for evening walks. This is the view from our patio!
Lots of iconic fountains and sights to see. The Piazza Navona is a visit each year.
Three of the arches are from the original Pons Aelius, build in 123 AD by Roman Emperor Hadrian. The two arches that linked the bridge to the banks were destroyed in the 19th Century with construction of the Lungotevere (the walkways/banks that were built to prevent flooding).
