2019 Rome




The most popular tourist attraction in the world. Crowds of visitors, ticket touts and selfie-stick sellers. Colosseum.




Trevi Fountain.




Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II.




River Tiber. More accurately half of the River Tiber, on the left is an island mid-stream; this is looking SE from Ponte Cestio towards Ponte Palatino.




Descending from the Capitol.




Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano.




Dinner in La Taverna de' Mercanti.




The Spanish Steps.




The Forum.




A typical street in Trastevere, where the apartment was.




In most capital cities you can see cars from all over; in Rome we saw but one vehicle of any sort with a non-Italian plate, this Spanish one.




The view from the balcony of the 6th-floor apartment.




Artwork on the apartment wall: Salvador Dali The Apotheosis of Homer (1944).




Eleven degrees south of MK and warm in November, even outside on the patio.
