Supposed to rain today...back packs all sorted last night...out by 9.30am to Santa Maria Novella Stazione to beat the rain. 161,000 people a day move through the station. Our high speed train at 10:52 took 90mins to Rome....travelling at times 251kms per hour! ?? didn't feel a thing!!
Arriving into Roma Termini Stazione we were armed with our prepurchased metro tickets from our last visit so we were straight onto the A Line metro, 4 stops to San Giovanni's 'Re di Roma'. About 8 roads to choose from to find Via was of course the only one unamed! Our host was waiting for us. Alessandro greeted us & showed us around. We chatted for about half an hour (he spoke very good English).
A great restful night in a quiet neighbourhood.
Friday there is a planned GENERAL STRIKE for all public transport in Rome AND also a NATIONAL STRIKE for all transport including Airlines & Toll roads & Ferries. Just as well we didn't have a ticket for Friday anywhere!!

No Hiccups!
A day of walking about then if there is a general strike. Hopefully the weather is fine? A high of 8 degrees here today and a wind that cuts right through you...Winter on it's way :( Clocks go back an hour on Sunday morning. So keep sending the pics to cheer us up :) xx
