you’re not supposed to dangle your feet in the water! lack of tourist decorum is part of what drives Romans up the wall! thanks goodness the Vatican enforces some of the rules :). Do visit my blog for a recent post on tourism in Rome…
Have to agree there Bea… like those in shorts whinging at not being allowed into our mosques.
Ah The Trevi Fountain.
I got lost here in Roma!
However it being such a hot day and having long strides on for an early
morning Mass at the Vatican ( long trousers needed for there!!!),
I managed to find this and the Spanish Steps.
As the heat was stifling many tourists dangled feet and legs into the water
for cooling off.
The World turned out to be a small place, I found myself dangling my legs in the
water with the next door neighbours of one of my best friends from college days!!!
We then after this coincidence adjourned to the restaurant that was used in the
movie – “Three Coins in the fountain”.
Brings back long ago memories of Roma!

VERY small world I can certainly agree there!
A friend of mine wentthere recently and was disappointed to find it closed due to filming for the new Bond movie!
Timing is everything – been on the similar receiving end a few times
