The visit

Yesterday I received the welcome visit of Marcia and her family: the husband and 2 beautiful girls. They arrived here on board the Emerald Princess, a big cruise ship. We spent a nice day together in Rome where we met Sir Giorgio who planned with me the "touristic tour". Unfortunately our wives could not come with us for last minute problems. 


We visited Piazza del Popolo,  Spanish steps, Trevi fountain, the shop streets (Via del Corso e via Condotti), the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and the Coliseum (see photos below). We had lunch near Campo Marzio, the historical place where Julius Caesar was killed. Thank you Marcia (and family) for your much appreciated visit.

  1. I saw Marcia's photo of your meeting yesterday and was excited for all of you. It blows my mind that you 'meet' someone on line and one day they might be giving you a tour around their city. Very cool!

  6. That world-traveler, Marcia, needs to adopt me so I can go touring all over the country with her - especially when she comes to Italy to spend some time with you. So jealous. I so hope one day we can meet up (and I have hung with Marcia and her beautiful family many times - love them :))

  7. We really had a great time in Rome with Marcia, her husband and her two adorable girls. They are very friendly people. I was so glad to see that they enjoyed walking through the old part of Rome.

  8. How lovely! Sounds like you guys had a great time. And those pics are fabulous! I know the weather in Rome is very hot at the moment, as Gianni Morandi informs me :-)
    Aproposito, sono iscritta alla maratona di Firenze. Ho tanta paura, ma sicché verro a trovare mia sorella e gli amici, pensavo di combinare l'utile con il dilettevole :-) Finisco anche gli anni.... che ne pensi? E poi, hai mai pensato di farlo anche tu?

  10. How cool that you met a blogfriend and were able to spend the day with her. And even cooler she got 2 for the price of 1 since Sir Giorgio was there too.
