One day in Rome

Rome. Sunday I spent some hours in Rome with my wife Daniela. I had to go there for a medical check at the broken collar bone (yes, the doctor was so kind to visit me on sunday). The city is always amazing especially in spring: warm and full of colors. We had lunch near Campo Marzio, the place where in 44 d.c. Julius Caesar was killed.  Inside Campo Marzio there is the famous "Cat Shelter". Here you can see Campo Marzio, a well refined gentleman "owner" of the shelter and the pizza that I ate:




After we had a short walk along the Tevere river and through Piazza Navona.



Injury update. I hope to come back to run on april 8th after the last medical check.

How did you spend your Sunday?

    We just booked a European cruise that will stop in Rome for July 2015! Hope I can meet you!

  2. If you are planning to run on the 8th that must mean things are getting better? I sure hope so! We spent our Sunday walking around town - I also put a few pics on my blog. It's so great to get out when the weather is so nice!

  3. Beautiful! My wife and I are doing a course through our church and it includes some history of the Roman times. We would so love to visit Rome one day. I had Latin at school and we did a lot of history there as well. I will love Italy!

  9. I love your pictures. I love the cat. I love that the doctor saw you on Sunday. I love that you can probably run soon.
    I swam on Sunday, did errands and enjoyed the day.

  10. I love Rome although I have been there just once and some years ago. But I will go back one day.

    Keep my fingers crossed for next week that you can run again.

    I didn't do much last Sunday, some walking and enjoying the Spring weather.

  11. Such history! There are no "old" buildings in Australia!

    Last Sunday I ran my "long" run of 12k at 5:54, then shopping and watching F1 on TV. I hope you're running soon. Looks promising.
