I'm leaving in what I wrote when I first put this post together -- learning of a friend's death last Monday made it seem incongruous to post anything on Tuesday morning, and, as you now know, that grandchild made her poor parents -- especially her Mama! -- wait until Thursday.
I will say that thinking about the city is a pleasant distraction from the slight anxiety and great anticipation of waiting for a grandchild who is now a week overdue (having myself been between one and two weeks overdue for each of my four, I have tremendous sympathy for my daughter-in-law). Crossing my fingers that between drafting this post Monday evening and posting it Tuesday morning, I'll be able to include a different announcement. . . .
|The street sign denotes the Clivo di Rocca Savella -- there's an informative webpage about this street's history here|
and the magnificent view from that hilltop. . .
Have you ever visited Rome? If so, what were the "can't miss" spots for you? Any perfect restaurants to recommend? Favourite museums? Best walks? Best season to visit? And if you haven't been there yet, would you like to? Or not? And why? And, finally, I'm looking for good mysteries or other novels set in contemporary Rome -- recommendations?
