Time and money saving tips for art lovers


Eager to see some of the great Renaissance Masters but short of cash when in Rome?
 Pop into any church for free, avoid the crowds and admire and absorb at your leisure.

In Basilica Parrocchialle Santa Maria del Popolo one can see
Bernini
Raphael
Caravaggio 








Ladies just remember that shoulders and knees must be covered.
It's a perfect excuse for buying a couple of beautiful scarves from any street vendor (there are hundreds) to create a quick shawl and sarong skirt to pop over your top and shorts.  This also doubles as a perfect and cheap souvenir of your Roman Holiday.

As easy as a walk in a park


A few weeks break between study enables me to catch up on emails and blogging.
Plus enforced rest from a mild flu helps.

A few more travel posts and then my holiday reminiscences are finished.
For now.
I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

Today we are still in Rome.

Where a walk in the park provides views both pleasing and amusing.
