It’s a beautiful day to be in Rome

4 Mar

This is one of my favorite views when I’m walking back home from the area around Largo Argentina, and today is our first really glorious spring day. I can tell it’s the start of the “bella stagione” because the accordion players are back out in full force, serenading the diners at the sidewalk restaurants. Buona domenica!

St. Peter’s and the Tiber River as seen from Ponte Garibaldi, today about 12:45 pm
(the bridge shown is Ponte Sisto)

Same view, late November 2006

    Shelley, you are so right. I was just in that neighborhood around 1:30 (I was going to eat at Le Mani in Pasta but it was too crowded. It is so gorgeous out. I really don’t want to leave. 🙂

    Wow, it is really beautiful there today! We had bright sunlight yesterday but we’re back to grey and fog today. Spring is coming though!

    I would have LOVED to take a walk around Rome with you yesterday. I love that city!We had really nice weather this weekend too. Imagine my surprise when I awoke to a wall of gray this morning. The fog rolled in last night, wonder if we will see the sun at all today.Cyn

    ponte sisto…i walked over that bridge a thousand times. right now, in my apt in switzerland, on our bedroor door I have hung a painting which I bought on the Ponte Sisto from a street artist, maybe 6 years ago. I remember the face of the accordian player there.
