Reflections on Rome inspired by a 6 am tour of the Sistine Chapel
I think I would do anything to spend an afternoon on foot with Danielle. So poetic, observant and knowledgable.
Danielle, your writing is so descriptive - reminded in part of my visit to Rome in October 2022. I would love to do the Master Key tour sometime. My tour of the Sistine Chapel was short, crowded and noisy - detracting from the artistic beauty. I also want to do the Pilgrimage of the 7 Churches.
I was facinated by the way the city planners integrated the new buildings among all the ruins.
Of all the places I visited during my 3 month stay, Rome was my favorite.
Danielle, This is simply beautiful! I've loved Rome since I first walked onto Piazza Navona in 1992 and have spent enough time there to have gone from starry-eyed love-struck to I see the warts but I love you still. Your wonderful writing set it all down perfectly. Brava!!!
