Rooms with views

I've enjoyed some fantastic views on this trip to Italy, sometimes from my room and sometimes while roaming.

This is a pedestrian tunnel near my apartment in Rome, linking my street to the ancient church of St. Peter in Chains:

I stayed a few days with my friend Marica at her villa in the hills above Florence. Spectacular scenery and the views from my room were fantastic!

And in Umbria, at Letizia's gorgeous agriturismo Alla Madonna del Piatto in the mountains above Assisi:

And although this angel wasn't quite within view of Letizia's agriturismo, it's still a lovely fresco at the nearby retreat of St. Francis of Assisi, San Damiano.

Hi Sandra,

Wow, you have had some amazing views on your trip. Lucky you. And I love that angel in your last photo.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences. It's so much fun traveling vicariously in Italy through you. Keep on having fun ....

ditto to Annie's comment

WOW! That must have been so cool staying at the Villa outside of Florence. I am glad you go to change your plans to stay there. Letizia's agriturismo also has amazing views. Someday if I ever rent a car...
