What can anyone say about Rome? Full of captivating history, it is a feast for the senses. Much of it is pleasant, some of it is not. The photographs in this post show the beauty and grandeur of Rome, but don't accurately reflect the intense humidity, heat, noise, chaos, less than appealing odors, and the stress of maneuvering two families with three little boys aged 6-8 through it all safely for three days.
But alas! It is Rome. And I am fortunate to have been able to go.
