Holiday – Day 1: Rome

The view from room 405After landing, we took the train from Fiumicino (Leonardo Da Vinci) Airport - thirty minutes, 28 Euros and a fifteen minute walk later we arrived at the Hotel Augusta Lucilla Palace – find it on Google Maps HERE.

The weather is cold and rainy and we’ve discovered how high the kerbs are and how many pot-holes there are, when you’re towing your luggage!

4.10pm: We’re in room 405 – compact and bijoux is probably the most accurate description, but at least it’s quiet, even with the windows open - I guess that’s good for the centre of the city!!!

We probably won’t do much more today except go out exploring and get our bearings – and find somewhere to eat. I did spot a McDonald’s on the walk here, but I have a feeling, we won’t be going there!!! Smile

Ciao!!! More tomorrow!
