We arrived in Rome again on the 9th May for a few days. We couldn’t stay in our usual bed and breakfast appartment as it was booked out so we took an airbnb room close by. It was comfortable but with all our luggage we felt like sardines in a tin.
The owner also advised us to go to a different train station which we did but omitted to tell us that there was no lift so between us we had to cart our luggage down and up stairs and were exhausted by the time we tried to get a taxi which also took some time as there were none at the station in the evening.
We visited my aunt and then got the train back to Van Mauriceson in Roccamandolfi where we spent a week readying the van for this year’s travels.
After ten days with my relatives spent eating our way through several courses of lunch and dinner most days interspersed with short trips to beautiful Gaeta and Tivoli, we departed to visit our now 92 year old friend in Tuscany at her lovely old farmhouse.
The weather was very unseasonal with much cooler temperatures than usual and with some rain. We left Italy on the 1st June for Corsica.
