People watching is fun. It was one of the first places I visited in Rome. I remember standing on the top of the stairs taking photos for a analogue panorama.
Ciao Steffe! I purposefully didn't post "view" shots looking down! Ciao and thanks for stopping by again!
One of my favourite places in Roma.I even know a young man who proposed to his now wife there. I suspect one of many, although maybe not many British men would go to such lengths!
A great place to eat an ice cream and watch the world go by.
Lindy~ It is a very romantic place, that's for sure!Loree~ Mmm... indeed! Now I'm craving gelato, thanks! ;)
The Spanish Steps, built by the French, in Rome. You have to love this place.
Jeff~ That's Rome, for you!
Lovely shots of life. I wouldn't mind being one of those eating on the steps :)
When I was there there were several people with signs saying Regala Abbracci ... surprising how many people did and did not act upon the offer of free hugs.
The best place.Will be there soon.Nice pics.
T. Becque~ Did you knoe I *almost* asked them to pose for my 100 Strangers Project? But then I chickened out. Again.ChuckP~ Are you serious, free hugs? I love those...Ian~ Thank you, looking forward to your Rome pics then!Ciao!!
I've been to France, Indonesia, all over but never Rome and these photos beckon..I love the life energy. The outdoor painters remind me a bit of the plein air painters here in Carmel. I wonder if a beginner can keep up in your cooking classes? Ciao for now!-Leslie
Leslie~ Are you kidding?! My cooking classes are *geared* to the beginner/home cook! I'm no chef! I cook what we Italians commonly make at home for our everyday meals!! You must come to Roma and cook with me...
What wonderful photos! I love the one of the artists working outdoors.
Randy~ I like the composition of that one too, there's so much going on...Ciao!
Looks like a great place to hang out
Toemailer~ It is, but not when it's too crowded... Thanks for your visit.
ele - your foto of the piazza di spagna is so lovely --- and particularly sentimental because my parents spent their honeymoon at the hassler hotel (in the top right of the shot, and i think in that corner room!) after ww II.
Amanda~ you should write a memoir... can you imagine how stunning Rome was after WWII, as seen through that corner window at the Hassler, by 2 pairs of lovestruck eyes? Perfection.
ele, that gave me chills. thank you for that incredible idea....you've got me thinking....
Thank you for visiting Roma Every Day. Your feedback is always hugely appreciated, though it is no longer possible for me to reply individually to your comments in the post thread. For any questions, please feel free to send me an email. Grazie! ~Eleonora
