We have now begun the Italian leg of our journey. Tania and I arrived in Rome on Saturday and immediately hit the streets on a food tour….we were hungry for adventure and pasta. The boys (with our clothes) eventually arrived on Sunday. After their long flight, Sunday became a bit of a blur for them. We visited a few sights but the heat and crowds eventually took their toll and sleep was eventually sought. I was also able to catch up with my Mum who had just completed her 10 day whirlwind bus tour of Italy and was going to spend the next fortnight with us.
This leads me to today, Tania and I part company for a few days as she stays in Rome with Murray to finalize the wedding paperwork and Michael, Mum and I travel by train to Florence, the Renaissance revisited!
We have a wonderful two bedroom apartment near the train station, above a restaurant and between two churches. We are definitely blessed.
The first night ended by watching the sunset over the city from Piazzale Michelangelo. Bellissimo…and buona notte 😌
