Really?!! I hope so - what a wonderful time to go - dress really warm in case it does get like the photo - but I honestly think it will be a magical, mystical time for you...
I am really thrilled you are going. I do wonder, however, if you have thoroughly acquainted yourself with the stalking laws in Vatican City.
I hope you're planning to write about any international incidents you create.
To the tune of "I'm Gettin' Nuttin' for Christmas":She's gettin' Roman for ChristmasSwiss guys are goin' on guardShe's gettin' Roman for ChristmasAnd I'm gettin' maybe a card. Congratulations! Have fun!
Great!!! A word of advice - bring a very heavy coat! Brrr!
Rome Sweet Home! I hope to make it there eventually!
I understand you. I don't like the heat but I went to Rome last July. I said to my husband that I prefer to go to cool places but, if it is to go to Rome, he can take me in the hotest of the heats,that I will go hapilly.England and Rome, each one with its good things, I'm always ready to go.
Enjoy! A couple of years ago I went to Rome right after Christmas. I wore a raincoat with a zip-out lining, which worked for all the weather combinations I ran into there.Snow in Rome is rare, but if it snows while you're there, try to beat it over to the Pantheon and watch snow fall through the oculus in the dome...
Wishing u the best! Did u know that some nunneries rent out rooms to tourists? Cfr. Bed and Blessings Italy: A Guide to Convents A Guide to Convents and Monasteries Available for Overnight Lodging & a website www.MonasteryStays.com And may Divine Ripples go with you.
WOOT!!! Praying for things to work out for a wonderful, meaningful, blessed pilgrimage for you, Kat!! +JMJ+
Good luck, Kat. I hope it comes through for you this time.
Kat, I've been to Rome several times in Dec/Jan & never needed more than a rain slicker type jacket. The convent I stay in actually lets guests pick the oranges/limes/lemons that are still on the trees. So, unless its a fluke, it won't look like this pic. I am so happy you're finally getting to go, its so worth it!
It probably depends on how susceptible people are to "damp cold". For example, I went to San Francisco in the summer and thought I'd freeze to death! Granted, not as much in the way of sea breezes at Rome, but still, the place was built on a river marsh. If DC's clammy sometimes, I bet Rome is, too. So the lined raincoat sounds like a very good idea.
Perfect weather for cappuccino and toblerone...
(Singing) You'll be home . . . for Christmas,You can count on thee,Please have snow,And mistletoe,And Swiss Guard waiting under the tree . . .Christmas Eve you'll find Kat,At the Midnight Mass,You'll be home . . . for Christmas,Yup, you can bet your a . . .!
