A Wander in Rome

Our flight home leaves from Rome and we catch a local train from Polignano a Mare to Bari and the Intercity train from Bari to Rome, spending an evening in Rome before flying out the next day.

Getting to Rome

Outside the Rome train station (Roma Termini), we find the impressive statue "Conversazioni" by Oliviero Rinaldi.


Continuing down the street from the train station, we find creative parking solutions near the Fontana della Naiadi.

We stroll a few more blocks and reach the Spanish Steps, packed with tourists.

Arriving at the Spanish Steps

We continue down Via del Corso to Piazza del Popolo, a great place to stop for cocktails as the sun sets:  negronis and a limoncello spritz.

We finish up and head over to the River Tiber, which we will follow to dinner.

We only have a late afternoon and evening in Rome, but we get the fabulous opportunity to walk through the city and enjoy the ambiance, the people, and the weather.
