Rome was our 6th city and the driver wanted to beat the rush hour! He didn't quite make it but it was interesting watching the Italian way of driving from our front seat view! Every one felt sorry for us I think as we had been on the back seat for three trips and strangely when we got on the seat was empty!
We had a guided tour by coach and walking which gave us a good insight into what was best to see.
Rome was just fascinating in every way and we threw our coins into the Trevi Fountain to ensure our return!
The next day we left our hotel as we were going back up to Verona ready for our return home the next day. However, a trip to Assisi was first. The weather began to change as we got nearer to the city and by the time we got there we had the worst rain of the holiday. We went into the first church we came to and I was absolutely gob-smacked - no photos allowed but the memory will live forever!
The rain did eventually stop and before we went to the Cathedral of St Francis we had a coffee only to come out and find the place enshrouded in mist!
Again a beautiful place and not time to do it justice.
Here are the photos that didn't make it into the journal
I still have more pages to fill with more random pictures but not for now, we are going away with our grandchildren for a few days.
Now for the Stop press item - we are going back next Spring to Rome and Florence ( and hope to get another day in Assisi)Yay!!!
A bit of an adventure - we are flying to Rome then catching a train there and back to Florence so we can have a few days there too!
Thanks for looking, Chris
