  • My own version of A Roman Holiday

    I'm an incurable romantic so when I saw LivItaly's tour of Rome on a Vespa, I just couldn't resist!! My guide, Giulio and I, zipped around Rome in 1960s style for about 3 hours and I could have continued for another 3! We saw all of the major sites, stopped and took millions of pictures and then went off into the hills just outside of the city center. It was an experience I will never forget and I can't thank LivItaly enough for this wonderful opportunity!!
