Visiting Rome

Recommended Posts

I finally came around to reading all four parts - thanks for sharing! ;-)

Never made it to the eternal city myself (Lago di Bolsena was about as close as I ever got) but Your excellent reports make me feel different.

Fifth & sixth trips. With pictures!

To make opening the pictures easier, I made it in html format. This is my first ever attempt at making web-pages, and it shows. (Showing respect...)
