Weekend in Rome

Three weekends ago, me, my wife and two of our good friends were off to Rome for a long weekend. It was an amazing feeling to step out from the plane into a spring warm Italy. Just to be able to walk around in a t-shirt makes a lot for a very tired northerner :)
Although a bit funny thing was that many Italians thought it was still cold as themselves they were still wearing thick coats and hats.
The days were spent visiting all these Amazing must-see tourist destinations such as the Colosseum, the Vatican, St. Peter's Church, Appia Antica, etc. Occasional break for eating and drinking :) To be fair, we were constantly full after trying out all these restaurants, drinks and ice cream bars.
I am very much recommending a visit to Rome. Its a fantastic city with loads of history and amazing views.

Hope the pictures are being fair.

  1. He, he. Den där Fiat 500:an ser nästan äldre ut än själva Colosseum...Snygg bild på den anläggningen, förresten.

  2. Verkar vara en fin stad men mycket turister?

  3. Hej Jani, Ja Rom är verkligen ett resvärt mål. Ser ut som ni hunnit med det mesta, tom Sixtinska som inte är så lätt att komma in i. Men fiaten....var den ni reste i såklart :))

  4. Jättefina bilder från Rom! Verkar vara en riktigt vacker och intressant stad! :)

  5. Vackra bilder från Rom! Verkar ha varit en bra semester och skönt att få en försmak av vår och sommar. Har inte varit i Rom kanske skulle se till och åka dit någon gång.

    Ha en bra helg,
