Rome, Italy (Part 1)
Rome is a beautiful and historic city and you cannot help falling in love with it. Unfortunately, we did find it difficult to navigate and we only managed to see a few sights on our short two day visit. We intend going back for a longer stay sometime in the next few years. We also found it incredibly busy and would advise anyone to get up early to see the sights without queues, and to move about without the hustle and bustle that is daytime and evening Rome! On the other hand, you need to experience daytime and evening Rome to soak up the atmosphere!
Imagine being places where chariots raced and moved through the streets, where Brutus assassinated Julius Caesar, where the Roman Senate met and the Coliseum roared with the gathered Roman masses, all around 2000 years ago! Oh and by the way, it would appear that Christians were not fed to the lions in the Coliseum! That was done somewhere else! The whole place is just stunning! Here are this post’s selection of photographs! I hope you like them:
This image was taken at night, hand held! It looks really spooky and Halloween like with haunting lights and colours and a spooky statue in the bottom left!
The next post, Rome, Italy (Part 2) will be published before the end of this week, and will show some more of Rome! Hopefully, you like these photographs enough to have a look! Why not sign up for e-mail notification of new posts being published!
Some of you may have clicked the link on the right which takes you to my website. This has been replaced with a new website, designed and programmed by my son, Jonathan, who is a Software Engineer. It is still being populated with larger versions of my photographs than before, and what we think is a clearer, sharper and crisper design. Please click the link and have a look! I would really value opinions whether positive or negative! Be a ‘critical friend’! That’s how things improve!
