Roaming in Roma

This morning I balanced out my breakfast chocolate croissant (filled with Nutella I fear) with four prunes. Someone’s gotta do it.

Yes, I am in Roma on my way to the Bologna Book Fair. So a little sightseeing and eating and drinking along the way.

Just got back from Happy Hour at the local hotel…5 Euros for a Spritz and a plate of Italian antipasto. Not that this is an eating tour but so far I have managed to have pizza, pasta, gelato, bruschetta, arinchini, prosciutto, choc croissant, chinotto etc.


Have also had a good look around…walking nearly all day long looking at the sites, some classic and others just as we wandered and discovered.

My favourite area I think has to be the narrow streetways around Piazza Novena. The beautiful old buildings and doorways are classic postcard scenes. Have taken way too many photos considering it is only day 4 of a ten week trip.

Not really sure what this was all about, except that it was a bit of fun.

Tomorrow we head by train to Vernazza in the Cinque Terra before onwards and upwards to Bologna for the Children’s Book Fair.

This bike is not going far.
It always pays to look down so you don’t miss stuff like this. I am going to see if I can find out more…
