Eternal City

The final destination on our tour of Italy was the capital. We stayed in a studio apartment with a vast roof terrace in the neighbourhood of Monti, an area off the tourist trail but only a 5 minute walk from the Colosseum. Two days wasn't enough time to explore the city but we had an incredible taster... from the Trevi fountain, to a tour of the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica, a morning visit to the Colosseum itself, walking through the incredible ancient ruins of the Roman Forum (a favourite of Dan's) and absorbing the architectural triumph of the Pantheon. In the evenings we had dinner in Monti and also made our way across the Tiber to Trastevere. A gorgeous bohemian part of the city with narrow streets bustling in the evening with restaurants, cafes and bars, we sat and enjoyed a drink whilst watching a cardinal and a rabbi walk by!
