Hotel Raphael Rome

To celebrate the passage of four weeks since the burglary and the shooting we decided to go down to Rome for the night. We stayed in the ivy bedecked Hotel Raphael near the Piazza Navona. Some of the rooms are getting rather tired so we asked for one of their new air conditioned rooms and got one looking straight onto the road that leads to the Piazza. On the top floor the hotel has a small, almost secret, open air restaurant with views across the rooftops of the old city to St.Peters.There is nothing, but nothing, like eating out under the stars in the eternal city. The weather was perfect with blue skies and the mildest of breezes to take the humidity out of the air. The boyz have now been picked up from the kennels and are sound asleep under the pergola. Will post tomorrow with more pictures.
