Rome part two and a half!

Rome is an amazing city, so many ancient remains to see, and fabulous buildings and monuments, it takes a long time to get to see it all. We were there a week and still did not see it all, but here are a few of the things we did get to visit.

 More of Ancient Rome


The Casa Delle Vestale


 Inside St Peters - The Vatican


 Artwork by Michaelangelo

 The Beautiful Villa Borghese and massive gardens



 A lovely fountain to sit and relax by



not far from the produce markets

A truly amazing city, but not sure if i could live there, outside the city centre its dirty and rundown, but further out in the country or seaside its beautiful, which is probably why a lot of italians like to live out of rome.
Until next time, hope you are having fun !

I have two blog friends posting about Italy at the moment - reminds me why I have always wanted to visit again!

Yep, you've convinced me that Italy should be our next trip overseas . That is, if we can ever afford it again !!
We'll keep saving.
Cheers
