Has it really been a whopping six weeks since I last updated? Dear me, it has. But this certainly doesn’t mean that my thoughts have been neglecting Rome – I simply haven’t had the time to write any of it down! As I don’t have much time today, I thought I’d share a few photos I took the last time I was in Rome. On our first night, my friends and I went to a wonderful (and very stylish) bar overlooking the Spanish Steps – Il Palazzetto (part of a hotel I believe) and took a series of photos in an attempt to capture the atmosphere. The noise of the bustling crowds below, the floodlit church of Trinita dei Monti, the lingering warmth and the jazz in the bar all combined to make it a very memorable evening!
At a pricey €9 for a glass of Prosecco it wasn’t a budget bar – but the atmosphere and views were well worth it.
When I have more time I will write another post on the Spanish Steps and the interesting history of this area of Rome.
