OK. Now we’re here.

DSC00019We are staying in an apartment near the Vatican, on the Vatican side of the river, but within a block or two of one of the many bridges over the Tiber, so it is also quite walkable to get to Piazza Navona and other sights on that side. We rented the apartment through Vacation Rentals by Owner (VRBO,) and we have had good luck with that sight on other visits. This location was marketed as Trastevere — tras (across) and tevere (the Tiber River) — from Central Rome. That is a little like trying to sell your fixer in Greenwood as “close to all the exciting new clubs and restaurants in Ballard,” but it is a very nice apartment and the location is fine. The photos here show the street and courtyard of our apartment.

    • We got your note. Things here are fine. Weather and food mostly wonderful. We are walking a lot and enjoying all the great sites. Went for a food tour that David’s staff gave him for a retirement gift. It was super. The group was nice and we tasted way too much great food and good wine. Thinking of you.
