Well, here we are... back home after two weeks in Rome (including a two day side trip to Orvieto) and we had a great time. We did many of the things we wanted though many others will have to wait 'til next time. We averaged a little over 9 miles a day walking and used the Metro, trains, buses and cabs. We celebrated my dear wife's birthday and our 20th anniversary... made new friends, received TWO pairs of paper pants... We bought souvenirs and gifts for folks back home and managed it all with carry on baggage.
Within this thread I'll talk about a lot of things we noticed about Rome on this trip (our 5th to the Eternal City)... some concerns and cares, but mostly about joy and beauty of this vibrant city.
Today I need to deal with client demands and jet lag, but over the next days, as pictures are sorted and I have time to post, I will share our trip with all of you who helped me plan it. Let me again thank you all for your help in making this trip to Rome very, very special!
