Friday Photos: Roman Romance

Romance on Capitoline Hill in July

Flowered sundress and shade, eternal love and Rome and a view over the ancient Forum on Capitoline Hill. Touring the Forum below, others search for something, baking under July’s sun, while we love each other under a canopy of green, on a cool wall and know that sitting here together has been done for centuries by others before us.

    I am not a romantic but this pic just melted my heart. It inspired me to read a Jane Austen novel (for the third time!).
    In 135 days (yes, I am counting down) I will be in Rome, hope I can find this spot and try to mirror your pic ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Cool, Monique! It’s a very easy spot to find. If my memory is correct it is behind the Piazza del Campidoglio towards the right hand side, when facing the Forum.

    This is unacceptable (for you, anyway.) I’m on about a once a decade schedule when it comes to Rome ๐Ÿ™‚
