Beautiful Rome! Going in January we were a little unsure of what to expect, weather and crowd wise, so we packed our bags and headed over for a four day break. We knew we had certain sights we wanted to see straight away, like the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, but the unexpected delight was how wonderful Rome is at night. I don't really know why it was so unexpected as these huge grand buildings are so perfect for extravagant evening lighting and they certainly did not disappoint. So the images you see above may seem like a larger proportion of night time images but this is what we really fell in love with. One night we went and did a typically British thing of eating at 6pm, the restaurant was just coming to life as we were leaving, so from then on we ate late and drank into the evening. Roman thin based pizzas and carafes of Chianti were a highlight, oh and the Nutella filled Super Mario cake for my Birthday of course. Rome is a City for wandering and walking over 8 miles every day meant we absolutely did our fair share of that!
