  1. Wow! That must be some trip! I think my history living heart just did a happy dance. I love what you say about life needing ups and downs- I’ve often thought that it’s the lows that make the highs seem even better:)

  3. Lovely post! We, too, had an exceptional experience in Rome. And we were just talking with a friend over dinner about a bakery in Rome where we would join the long queue in the mornings to purchase bread or pastries and espresso before we set out for our daily adventures. Reading this reminds me of that wonderful trip far, far too long ago. ?

    1. Hiya Lynn, we are floating from bakery to bakery during the day and gosh I am surely acquiring extra pastries in my body to tide me through winter! I shall have one more for you today πŸ˜› And yes, there cannot be anything less than delirium when in Rome (yes I am gushing)! xx

    1. Hiya Nina, thank you. He was a lovely Italian but they are so jovial and cordial here. Rome is for feeding the soul…when you find yourself here you shall possibly lap it all up. The history and art take it a notch and the food…the food is just divine πŸ™‚ xx

  4. Hey, this is Lex. Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading about your reveling through Rome. It brought back so many wonderful memories for me. I was there with my father in January 2001. We stayed at a hotel in Piazza Navona and I must concur: their gelato is legendary! Thank you so much for sharing this!

    1. Hi Lex, thank you for sharing your memory. For memories are everything, is it not? They are those little pouches of goodness you need to peek into from time to time. I bet you had a grand time with your father soaking in the elegance and beauty of the city. I will do a few more posts on it. For now I am trying not to get swept by the beauty of it, too far from shore πŸ™‚ Here’s to more gelato till we leave it!

  5. Ooooooooooooh Christmas in Rome…how very exciting! Lovely writing, pictures and trip. One foodie to another- How yummy is the food? I,for one loved it all but hubby was apprehensive of how rich everything there was. I remember, the breakfast buffet at our hotel had scrambled eggs FLOATING IN BUTTER. My goodness, we had never seen anything like that! Rome is just a traveler’s dream! Which other destinations are on your itinerary? Silly me…. You must be busy relaxing and having a blast so stop replying to the comments and have loads of fun girl! Have a grrrrrrrrreat time!!! xx

    1. The city is too beautiful for words Mallika and the food…right now I am giving in wondrously to seafood and taking a break from the pizza and pasta but might dive back into the cheese tomorrow again πŸ˜‰ Your husband is right. I think therein lies the reason why the Italian nonnas are big and hearty. One of my Italian friends eats like there shall be no tomorrow and puts me to shame. We were in Florence yesterday but returned to Rome. Soon we shall be in India and the heart is loathe to leave this beauty behind.
      I love your comments so keep them coming πŸ™‚ Scrambled eggs doused in butter sounds delicious right now that I have just woken up after a late night of drinking with a friend and her partner here! Hope you had a lovely start to the week. xx
