Enjoying Rome

After a very long flight and stops in Bangkok and Zurich, we finally arrived in Rome! Met up with Frances, a friend from home, who is studying Italian here for a few months! We wandered the streets of Rome and visited the Trevi Fountain (to throw some coins in to ensure our return)!!

We enjoyed a variety of flavours of gelatto!

Enjoyed the colourful window displays of ceramics - beautiful platters and bowls - just wanted to take them all home!

And really loved all the artists and their works in the Piazza Navonna!


  1. It all looks wonderful! What a colourful place to visit.

  2. Wow, it looks fantastic. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

  3. Happy birthday to mum, hope you have the most wonderful visit

  4. Gorgeous pictures of Rome! The Trevi is a gorgeous fountain.

  5. Fiona, what fun! I lived in England for 16 years and spent many happy vacations in Italy--especially Tuscany--more especially Luca where the best foccacia in the world exits. Your pics bring back all the excitement of the amazing colors and architecture (sp), thank you for sharing these.

  6. Fiona,

    Wonderful trip; I love the ceramics! The bowls are just gorgeous.

  7. Everything you've mentioned I love in Rome - sounds like a super trip!

  8. just a word to say that ice cream in italian is written with only 1 T (gelato) and the other one is Piazza Navona.
    really happy you liked staying in italy and all our beautiful city and food andso on
