The first time when we were in Rome, it was late January 2007. A cold winter with lots of rain and cold winds, so even though Ruggero and I enjoyed very much the magnificent Coloseo and Vatican with all of their beauties, yet that time due to bad weather and without a local guide, I don’t think we really knew and saw the real, unique live of Rome.

This second time visit was a lot better. The morning with a big cup of coffee and biscuits was such a beautiful day to start with. 85 Farenheit with cool breezes and sun shine, it could not be better. On top of all that, our friends Dario and Miriam were our perfect guidances from the moment we got on the train, then the bus, to several stops like: street markets…

window shopping…

business related resource and new ideas and informations…

To our fantastic lunch at a local delicatesen…

to the famous Piazza Navona square…


Everywhere we stopped and passed by, Dario, the man who grew up and knows each corner of the street and even every cobble stone in Rome just like his own hands explained to us in
detail all the facts and informations of the locations. Very interesting facts and not to mention the great humor he added to the stories which made us laughed so hard.

I don’t know how long and how many miles we walked till we all realized we were tired.
So we sat on the bench in the Pantheon for ten minutes before we headed back to the train station again.

Such a good and beautiful day in Rome the four of us had. It is so worth all the troubles of flying twenty one hours, including the costs of the traveling over the ocean of course. But what can we ask for more from this beautiful life?…
