Roma

Rome is so clean and cultured, calm and sophisticated after 5 days in the grime and chaos of Naples. The cobblestones seem to gleam here – polished – and most noticeably, are impossibly perfectly irregular.

We are in an apartment in the Campidoglio and in walking distance of everything we wish to see. I am instantly smitten with a place that has taken me 42 years to see.

I wandered at dawn this morning along the Tiber. Famous rivers really do it for me and this one rivals the Thames and Ganges in my imagination. The tree-lined walk was completely salubrious (as was the one euro cappuccino) and fruit purchased at the Campo de’ Fiori markets for my sleeping family.
