Magnificent Rome in the Summer!
Somehow I had not managed to visit Rome so far even though it was at or near the top of my “list” for many years. I spent a few days recently in the Summer of 2011 with my family and we were all taken aback by the magnificence of the city. To those of you who have visited Rome this will come as no surprise to you, however despite everything that we had heard and seen of Rome previously we were still unprepared for the sheer richness of culture, architecture and history that we experienced. Rome is indeed a living museum that we were lucky enough to be a part of the fabric of for a few days. It is absolutely beautiful.
The Vatican, Colosseum, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and countless piazzas, statues and churches defy superlatives and have to be seen to be truly appreciated. Add in the superb weather, food and pavement cafes and restaurants and this was truly an amazing short trip
