Rome, also on Ken's Bucket List

October 12th to 16th 2017

Avis had been to Rome on her first Teachers' Summer Holiday in 1956 but Ken had never been. We went on a four night Riviera Travel trip by aeroplane (alas, but it is too far to drive) & stayed in the Hotel President, which is ten minute brisk walk from the Colosseum.

We imagine many of you will have been to Rome, so there follows a scattering of photos, rather than a blow-by blow account of the trip. The weather was perfect the whole time.
