Rome - Feb 2010

After a sunny departure from Ischia, quite a surprise when the train ran into a
blizzard on the Campania/Lazio border - even more so for many Romans, whose city
was having its first heavy snowfall for some 25 years!

Luckily, it melted quickly, as that weekend saw Valentine's Day and Carnevale
coinciding - with events in Palazzo Braschi and Piazza del Popolo respectively.

Continue for recent restorations, including a couple of Rome's most popular
fountains and the gorgeous interior of Sant'Agnese in Agone, in Piazza Navona...

Pictures from the keyhole of the Knights of Malta, and several churches up on the
Aventine Hill, can be found here ___ http://www.pbase.com/isolaverde/aventine
