Aside from the trip to the Botanical Gardens, we wandered through the City towards Piazza Navone.

Meandering down streets

You see such unexpected beauty  it’s the best part of roaming around Rome

But there are still must sees on the way.  The Pantheon for one..

It had been stormy in the morning but the skies were clearing and the queues growing.  The guards kept us outside while it drizzled then let us in once it stopped….Grazie!


We then moved on to Piazza Navona for lunch.


Love the Piazza but like all cities it’s a tourist trap too, so go look but don’t stay too long.  The real beauty is hidden around the corners!


Having said that you can’t miss the Colosseum…..
