Springtime is one of the most beautiful seasons in Italy’s capital.
This year, with so many exhausted from endless lockdowns and COVID-weary, the tempting spring warmth is beckoning, and Romans are eager to get out an enjoy a walk through the city.
Not surprisingly, the walkways along the Tiber River are full in these days.
Over the weekend, I had a great walk along the Tiber, it was sunny and warm without yet being summertime hot (that will arrive soon enough).
I shared the walking path with plenty of joggers and cyclists, and plenty of likeminded walkers.
This walk gives you a different perspective of the city.
It’s fun to admire Hadrian’s tomb/Vatican defensive position Castel San Angelo, Trastevere, the numerous bridges spanning the river, the Tiber Island and the ruins of the Ancient Roman bridge (ponte rotto) – all to be admired from the level of the Tiber River.
This is a great stroll, and since our ridiculously COVID-contained lives have us anxious to get away from home, a springtime stroll along the Tiber is exactly what the doctor ordered.
See you riverside!
