We enjoyed our time in Rome and are now in Capri for two nights. It is cloudy and rather cold here (19 deg Celsius), but from tomorrow on the sun should come back. The season is about to end here and it is rather quiet. We walked a lot around the island and visited a few of the sites, among them Villa Juno, where emperor Tiberius resided in the first century AD.
After all the time with the grandchildren, we felt we deserved a holiday and have come to Rome for a few days. The weather is nice and we enjoy this old and busy city. We are staying in a little apartment close to Campo di Fiori and spending the days walking around the sites, finishing off with nice Italian food in the evenings.
We all went from Manchester to Paris by train yesterday, and today Andrea joined us for a fun day in sunny Paris: A visit to Montmartre with champagne on the steps to Sacre Coeur and a busy afternoon in the Bois de Bologne. Now the kids are tired, the hotel has organised a babysitter, and the adults get to go out for dinner.
