Roamin' in Rome!

I have been here in spirit but not in body for the past few days.

My it's a lot of work getting posts ready to schedule while you are away!   But I have returned now and as you can see by the late timing of this post it is back to irregular and unscheduled posting!

We went to Rome for four nights!  We like a holiday with a bit of sightseeing or should I say we like sightseeing with a bit of holiday!  Rome is a city full of cultural delights, shopping and people watching opportunites!  I got a lot of the first, none of the second and some of the third!

Rome is famous for it's Colosseum, 

it's gladiator's ready to fight to the death....

the Pantheon...

 the Forum...

...and the Vatican City

 It has the Spanish steps....

and the Trevi fountain.....

..... but my son favoured Rome as his choice of holiday destination due to it being one of the locations used in his favourite video game Assassin's Creed!

So we went round Rome looking for sites that Ezio (the main character) climbed into, around and over!  

Could this be the start of a new themed holiday in Rome??  Ezio was here!

and here....

  5. Oooh! Looks like a wonderful visit!! How neat that your son can relate to Rome thru video games-- they're not all that bad. I knew you were planning a trip to rome, but didn't know when-- it sure looked this week like you were posting from home, and Kat had given me the head's up that you'd be away, but i was still so worried that you had not received my package. Glad you did get it and love your photos of Rome!

  6. Glad you had a great time - that guy really was the oldest gladiator in town wasn't he!!
