This is one of my favorite views when I'm walking back home from the area around Largo Argentina, and today is our first really glorious spring day. I can tell it's the start of the "bella stagione" because the accordion players are back out in full force, serenading the diners at the sidewalk restaurants. Buona domenica!
St. Peter's and the Tiber River as seen from Ponte Garibaldi, today about 12:45 pm (the bridge shown is Ponte Sisto)
In 2001, my one-month "Roman Holiday" to take a break between jobs in the US and study Italian in Italy became a way of life after I fell in love with both this city and my husband, who I met the first day I arrived. (It happens when you're not looking!) After stints teaching English as a second language and directing a US university study abroad center, I moved back to the States for 3 years, had three kids, and eventually came back to Rome. Looks like I'm here to stay. Join me at my new blog, unamericanaaroma.com.
