We spent the first half of our trip in Rome.
We rented a studio apartment, it was very cozy and had lots of art and books.
This is the small courtyard where our flat was located. It was in the Campo de Fiori neighborhood, if you're familiar.
This daily produce market was just a block away; we got fruit here in the mornings.
A fountain outside Galleria Borghese; I thought it was going to be just another museum but the art and sculptures were spectacular, I highly recommend it.
No tourist trip to Rome would be complete without a trip to the Colosseum...
...and St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City.
Of course we ate gelato daily...
...and pizza a couple of times.
I just had to snap a pic of this - it's a shop that sells yarn and lingerie! I saw a couple of places like this.
Up next - the Amalfi coast, and sewing stuff!
