Goodbye, Roman Summer

With temperatures in the 80s and 90s Fahrenheit for the next four days, Rome seems to be giving summer weather one last hurrah.

The estate Romana has been impressive this year.  Heat waves and spectacular sunsets have been de riguer.

Walking along the Tiber usually offers a few degrees of difference and a tiny bit of respite from Rome’s heat.

I will miss the summer weather and the long, languid evenings.

    Wonderful pictures of Roma!

    The autnum has arrrived to my home city (Karlstad/Svezia) as well. Bu still no frost so there are still flowers blooming in our garden.
    We went to Firenze in May and it was warm, almost hot. The spring and summer in Svezia has been chilly and it has rained a lot.

      Thanks so much, Gunnar! In Rome, the weather cannot seem to make up its mind. We had so much rain and cool temperatures yesterday, but today is in the 20s and sunny as can be!

    My favorite spot there on the tiber tent area , was a place that had a large dance floor and you can dance with different people if you could dance , and needed or had a partner . But after a busy day of site seeing, i just loved just getting a beer and sitting and watching them salsa or flamingo dance , it was amazing to watch!!!! , sometimes the dance class students would put on a little show, VERY impressive. And to dance in those heels was amazing in itself. Is it still there?

      Hi Dena!
      I did not see that one this year, but it might still be around! I agree that it is a nice place to grab a beer and watch the crowds, but watching the dancers seems like an even better idea!
