Rome in summary

Rome – 80,713 steps and 38.19 miles walked over five days, fueled by cioccolata calda, great meals, and Prosecco.

Rome – exhausting and overwhelming. If Cinque Terre was a feast for the senses, Rome was an assault on the senses.

Rome – in retrospect, woefully unprepared for all I would see, even though I’d done some reading beforehand (and watched “Roman Holiday” several times over the years – does that count as prep?).

Rome – wonderful to turn a corner and see a Roman ruin or go into a museum and see centuries of art or walk through a neighborhood and see  beautiful churches and old buildings.

Rome – didn’t fall in love with it but want to go back because it’s fascinating and energizing and fabulous! Glad I threw that coin in the Trevi Fountain to ensure my return!
