Roma - the beautiful but extremely grimy city

How to survive the crowds

sunny 28 °C

Dear All

Our first full day in Rome today.

Got onto the open top bus today and did a round trip to see all the major sights of Rome. Got a Roma pass which we will use today when we go on our tour of the Vatican. I think I'll be dodging Lightning bolts on the steps so let's see if I get reduced to ashes.

Went to the Trevi fountain and did the touristy things such as throwing coins in and having piccies at the front of the fountain. The crowds are really amazing from the aggressive side of things. Really pushy and not considerate at all. Hence you see a few tempers fraying from time to time.

Also went to the Pantheon. Didn't go in, jut looked from the outside. My goodness. Been here so long and so good the Romans haven't pulled down all of their history.

Have finally got internet access back. One of our gripes we have with the apartment. I think Sandy will be having a ball on any Satisfaction Survey regarding our stay here! Long story but suffice to say, we are a tad disappointed with the apartment. Lots of Porky Pies told with misleading piccies.

Anyhoo.........off to dodge them Lightning bolts.

Cheers
