Roman Hoilday...

We arrived safe and sound in Rome. We look the Time Out guide's advice and avoided taxis getting the train instead. It was cheaper and faster. The hotel is nice and central. We attempted a little bit of exploring with what remained of our day but spent most of our time dodging traffic and the multitude of scooters that seemed hell-bent of hospitalising us. We stopped for pizza which was pleasant enough and then ended up sipping martinis on the seventh floor of our hotel overlooking a floodlit St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City. So first impressions have been good.
