With Valentine’s love in the air, I had to tell you about my trip to Rome. Steeped in history this is a truly beautiful, romantic city, filled with exquisite art and architectural delights at every corner.
We stayed near the Spanish Steps, ideally located in central Rome, and declared by Charles Dickens as the meeting place for artists’ models, dressed in traditional costumes, hoping to catch the attention of a wealthy artist. Unfortunately work was being carried out during our visit so we didn’t see anyone resembling a model or a wealthy artist. But the steps were still impressive. The Trevi Fountain was a short walk away and we admired it in full sunshine and romantic dusk, simply breathtaking.
I can’t begin to tell you every wonderful sculpture, ancient ruin or impressive building we saw during our three days in Rome, but we couldn’t get enough of them. Despite the heat of August, it was a family exploration we all enjoyed and we were unanimous in declaring we would all return to this gorgeous city.
