Doing better today in Rome. There’s just something wonderful in this ancient city, despite tourist madness.
Here are shots from a three-mile walkabout this afternoon.
The Fontana di Trevi is close to my little hotel, which is an oasis of peace and quiet.
There’s got to be 50 small bars (specializing in espresso), ristorantes within a few blocks of here. You just can’t go wrong. Like Manhattan, competition promotes excellence.
You can look up the Trevi Fountain on Wikipedia. Amazing how the travertine stone seems sculpted by nature, no seams or joints visible. Plus the water is clean.
I can’t complain about tourists, because I are one. Besides, they’re fascinating to watch.
Just a bunch of random shots…
