Pazzo en Roma! (Crazy in Rome)
Rome is incredible. Everything is on a huge scale, mind-blowingly old, and so beautiful.We walked and walked and walked, looking like those little dogs that sit at the backs of cars, with our heads flipping around and moving up and down all over the place as we tried to take everything in. The first day we went wandering, (trying to avoid getting run over.... no-one stops at pedestrian crossings) and managed to take in a lot of the central monuments, including the Castel D'Angelo, the Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Piazza Veneto, the Campo di Fiori, and about 3 amazing churches all called Santa Maria Something-Or-Rather with gold everywhere and the most beautiful vivid frescoes I've ever seen. Cobblestones are everywhere, vespas hurtling through, buildings in various states of decay that nonetheless looked even more beautiful, photo opportunities at every corner. Bliss!
