We left Tuscania on Sunday morning and set off for Rome. The main road was the SR2, and it is by far the worst road we’ve driven along, a dreadful surface with potholes everywhere.
We’re staying on the Flaminio Village campsite in the suburbs of Rome. The train station is close by, and the 15 minute ride into town is a bargain at €3 return.
Yesterday and today, we became tourists rather than travellers and joined the hoardes of sightseers in and around the city. We’d visited Rome on a mini-break in 2011 and had seen a lot of the sights, so we were pleasantly surprised to find quite a few places that we didn’t see last time. Pictures below.
Tomorrow we leave Rome and head towards Pompeii, which will be our base for visiting the Roman excavations there and in Herculaneum, as well as Naples and Sorrento.
