Fortunately our house move did not clash with our holiday.
We flew to Rome and stayed there for two nights.
We got an early flight, so were able to visit the Vatican city on the Saturday.
On the Sunday we visited the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Although we had booked tickets in advance we still had to queue for the Roman Forum.
We returned to the airport at Rome by coach to pick up a hire car. We drove to the agriturismo we had booked for our stay. In hindsight it was quite a long drive, but the countryside was beautiful. Italian roads and motorways are a bit crazy, Richard had to have his wits about him.
