This building – and the little piazza that it's in – has got to be one of my favourite spots in Rome. I can't help but wonder what it would be like to live in the apartment with such a lush, vine-shaded terrace...
I can't believe we're already approaching the longest day of the year – I love these long, light evenings so much that I'll be sad to see them gradually get shorter!
Monday: Things to do, projects to tackle.
I can't help but wonder why there are so many buildings in Rome with one or more fake windows painted onto their facades, carefully designed to look casually partially-opened or as though they have curtains behind them. It's just one of the unexpected little details I love about Rome.
Okay, it's only Wednesday and I need to it to be Friday – preferably Friday late afternoon – because this week is making me feel frazzled and like my brain is totally fried. I'm looking forward to getting a chance to relax and wander without much purpose.
One of the best things about these warm June days? Long, warm summer evenings, perfect for lingering outside with a glass of wine.
