As it is absolutely pouring down outside I have finally found the time to upload my photos from Rome… 6 weeks after we went. As you know I am photo obsessed but I think this is the longest it’s ever taken me to share photos! I was also forced into it as my MacBook is now officially full and needs wiping. So here we go, I’m basically going to tell you where we stayed etc and then bombard you with photos.
We stayed at the Hotel Martis Palace for three nights courtesy of Mumma Bueno. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and complete with a roof terrace and bar. It is a short walk, 20m, from the Piazza Navona and pretty much right in the middle of everything you could want to do in Rome. The hotel also has access to a spa offering manicures, massages, swimming and much more if you feel like a more relaxing day or you need to rest your feet. As we there for four days, we decided on the plane what we wanted to see and then tried to fit one big sightseeing destination per day plus getting lost in tiny streets when we had spare time/looking for cake.
We visited The Vatican, The Colosseum, Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II also known as the Alter of the Fatherland, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, The Spanish Steps, Capitoline Hill, The Pantheon and Arch of Septimius Severus where we accidentally walked onto a film set. It is absolutely impossible to see everything in Rome on one trip, I don’t think 5 trips would even do it, so we are definitely planning on returning in the future. If you are planning a trip in the future, please visit Two Sizes and have the caramel tiramisu. I can’t even explain how good it is, and I am an expert. Llama Supporter would highly recommend the sandwich shop next door that also sells speciality beers and ales, he ate there every day.
This is a mere 20% of the photos I took in Rome. I know, I have a problem. I’ve been on a photo break recently, due to many factors. I think that is about to change rapidly though, I’ve just moved 45GB of photos (or 12,000 photos if that gives you a better idea) on to a hard drive to save my Mac (lets see how long it takes me to fill it back up) and Llama Supporter is coming for the weekend! I will get round to uploading more of my favourite photos on Facebook and Instagram shortly but these are definitely enough to be getting on with.
Right I’m off to eat a gluten-free rocky road and listen to Dean Martin… yes the Christmas music is on and I don’t give a damn.
