La Dolce Vita

Buon giorno! Taking a break in Rome. A delight to have non-stop azure blue skies. I'll never complain about blazing sunshine ever again. Ever.

I can relate to this carriage driver. Afternoon sieste here is de rigueur.




Like Paris, Rome also celebrated a Fete de la Musique on June 21. Italian guys in kilts, the Roman Pipe Band.


Crowds at the Spanish steps listening to a marching band, which wasn't marching but tiered on the steps.



Tuscan rooftop vista.


A doorway in Tuscany on yesterday's day trip.


My Roman motto. Heck, it's my life motto. Carpe diem. Seize the day.
Ciao for now!

Italy is not so far away, yet is another world away from Paris (especially southern Italy.) I definitely will return. My take on it:

Rome: more color, sun, fragrance, fountains, smiles, gusto. Way more tourists!!

Paris: more subtlety, flowers & trees, dogs, edge.

Does that make sense?
