We spend the next few days touring the Spanish Steps which were closed, a chill afternoon in Villa Borghese park and then went Biking the Appian Way! My first time on a road that is 2300 years old!!
Sometimes it’s hard being the caboose (youngest) of the group
Villa Borghese. Beautiful
The kids played hide and go seek for hours
People would come and have lunch, beers and wine on the hill. Some would play music and everyone just relaxed.
The boys playing miecraft in the morning before heading upstairs for coffee with the Anderson’s.
8:00 in the morning this guy is mustering in Italian while drinking cooking wine out of a tetra pack. We thought it was funny and so did the guy behind him.
Train station or space port you decide!
Matty and I almost missed the train taking this picture.
Any port in a storm, this was the only restuarant open and we need food but more importantly heat. They even had blankets!
Look in the upper window
Villa d’este in Tivoli!
All the fountains are gravity fed from a spring.
Rain rain go away!
Ethan was a great “partner” except he regularly pedalled down the hills while I would brake. He had a great time.
Appian Way. This is the first main road the Romans built. How many people have walked this way?
Probably the best day we had in Roman, except for our butts they were sore after 7 hours on the bike.
This is how you know a Roman from a tourist. Romans plug the spout like this, tourists bend down and drink from the bottom.
