I can't believe that we got back from Rome 5 weeks ago and that I haven't really looked at the pictures I took yet!
I confess that I'm not as interested in photography as I used to be, but still...

On December 29th, after a week spent at my parents', I took the fast Frecciarossa train to Rome. I arrived a couple of hours before Adrian (who travelled from London City to Fiumicino) and so I went to sort out the accommodation, and then had a look (I think my 3rd visit) at the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli, built by Michelangelo in part of the ancient Baths of Diocletian. It is very close to Roma Termini, the main railway station.

I was thrilled to see Adrian in the crowd of people getting off the train from the airport! I always miss him terribly and I can honestly say that there hasn't been a day since I met him for the first time, that I haven't looked forward to seeing him/been happy to be with him.

Once reunited, we went back to the apartment

which I had found on AirB&B. It in on Via Giulia, in a 16th century building and it is made up of a large-ish bedroom with a corner with a table and chairs, a bathroom and a kitchenette.
Great central location and very quiet.

It was soon time for dinner and we went for a pizza, well calzone, at a restaurant recommended by the owner. It was excellent.

After that, we enjoyed a stroll in Piazza Navona

(where we also admired one of many nativity scenes dotted around the city)
