Yes, cold AND snowy Rome is right. That meant, except for the first day, all monuments and museums were closed the entire time I was there. A lot of restaurants and businesses were, too, but, as you'll see, I found a few places to eat and drink. I mean, what else was there to do??
I did brave the cold with my daughter Cecelia the first day (pre-snow) and the last day (after snow) to make some outdoor sketches. I'll post them in a couple of days.
I met dear Concetta Flore early on the day it snowed. We got some sketching done and here is one of mine from that day. More to come.
