A word of warning which you may have factored in, Rome is fucking expensive. If your other half is a shopaholic you may wish to hide your credit cards or remortgage your house. The old adage of if you have to ask the price you canít afford it may come back to haunt you as the shops donít display prices like we do.

Cheers for the tip batch, the alter of the fatherland building was great. Got the lift to the top and got great views. The building is huge and seems to be all marble. The Colosseum was fascinating,  got some great shots so glad I went. Also went to the piazza del popolo where I got into an argument with a water seller  Smiley
