In Italy on April 25th it’s a holiday. Liberation is celebrated, so my husband and I left for a short holiday, four days in Rome.
These days I saw fabulous things, indeed re-seen, because I’ve been in Rome many times, but every time, I discover something new that I like and that fascinates me.
The weather was magnificent, in fact I would say almost summer, but without being suffocating. Beautiful days, with a sky of an intense blue.
I returned home on the evening of April 25 and scrolling through Facebook to see if there were any news, I had the great surprise to see some beautiful photos of Rome, posted by the Ginoble family.
I had them at hand, we saw the same places on the same day and we did not meet ????
IT IS NOT POSSIBLE!!!!
Instead it was just like that, but let’s start from the beginning.
Since April 25th is a national holiday we included a visit to the Altar of the Fatherland, where our President of the Republic would present the laurel wreath to the “unknown soldier”.
And here’s what Ercole Ginoble has posted, the ceremony at the Altar of the Fatherland.
But I was there too, here are pictures with the police in full uniform who are preparing for the tribute to the president.
Then I went to see the beautiful Trevi Fountain, magnificent, so white, so full of people.
But what do I see? Also Mrs. Lenora Ginoble has posted the photo of the Trevi Fountain.
I was there too!!! But we have not seen each other.
And here’s my picture.
Continuing on Via Condotti, we arrive at Piazza di Spagna, beautiful in these days, because the steps of Trinità dei Monti are literally covered with azaleas.
Once again, Mrs. Ginoble posted a beautiful picture.
Really nice with the fountain of Barcaccia in the foreground …….. but once again I was there too !!!
And what do I find out? Ernesto was there too with some friends.
What a misfortune, I did not see any of them …….. but I saw a beautiful city, so I’m so happy.
I do not know what the Ginoble family has done yet, but I have continued my nice ride.
The Temple of Fortuna Virilis.
The Colosseo. Really mammoth.
The Mouth of Truth ….. it did not bite my hand !!
Wherever we turned, there was something to admire.
Then the beautiful Vatican Museums and its masterpiece: The Sistine Chapel.
Ok, I admit, I was sorry not to meet the Ginoble family, but then I realized that Gianluca was not with them, and thank goodness, I raised my spirits.
I confirm, for those who have not yet seen Rome, it is full of beautiful treasures and monuments.
Of course, as promised, I thought a lot about the whole crew while I was in Rome. Yes Jill, you’re right it would have been great to be able to meet all of you in Rome.
Hello Rome, we will definitely be back again …… but how many of you were in Rome?
