Eschewing any form of motor transport, taxi, bus, pogo stick or scooter whilst in Rome was the plan. And a very good plan it was. But beware! We did a lot, I mean a lot of walking and encountered stairs like these on numerous occasions. Comfortable shoes are a must preferably with a well padded insole. Back up plasters for children with chafing ankles is helpful, okay so not just children. Especially if the footwear is new and trendy and you have a conversation along the lines of ”I told you not to bring them” 🙂
But on the plus side, foot slogging did help to burn off the surfeit of pasta, pinsa, pastries and pizza in order to reach such wonderful places as these.
Happy city trekking.
