Bonus: Rome


I went to Rome and loved it. I took hundreds of pictures so I'll just post a few.

Night one, on the roof terrace. 


Trevi Fountain, massive with little standing room.


Colosseum groupie



Gulliver


Trevi selfie


Bridge on the way to the castle Sant Angelo


Beautiful Ruins


Top of the Spanish Steps


Bottom of the Spanish Steps


Church, with Jesus and the Apostles


Not quite France, but a nice effort


Again.


Roof Terrace in the sun - so much sun, and the heat.


Restaurant Groupie


Inside the Bascilla, so lovely. 


St Peter's Square


Pantheon


Bocca della Verita


Tiber Island


Republicca


Ferrari Store


Corte Di Cassazione - on the way to the Bascilla


Wonderful sight and worth the visit, religious or not, it's something else.


More Pantheon


More Ruins


From inside the Colosseum, looking out


Into the centre


A bit further round


That is a flat ceiling, yep, painted the shadows


Shiny ceiling


Stained glass window, just after we saw Pope Borgia's fireplace, I think


A Matisse, on paper


Some more beautiful stained glass


Colosseum at night


By day


One of many gellato trips


What's been dubbed the cake church.


Amazing. 


Vesta's Temple


Tiber Island


Hadrian's Crypt


To Finish, Mooner's Gate (Alter of the Fatherland)




Unwrapped


Well, not wrapped. 

But I am done. 


Sofa

That's 'her' sofa. She's not ours, sort of. 



Galleries


Think it's Christmas


One


One of the presents I put together this year


Cake


I adore red velvet
