My family loves to travel as a multi- generational group, often meeting up with rellies and friends along the way.
We had a wonderful Christmas in the North of Italy, in a house we had rented in the summer a couple of years before. Very close to Padua, it is an easy trip to Venice, Vicenza and other places of interest. We started in Rome and I include a few photos of the fabulous hotel we stayed in – the Villa Spalletti Trevelli. Can highly recommend it, an historic residence in the Quirinale district.

Near the Pantheon…
In the Pantheon!love the floor – fabulous simple pattern and colours
Matilda and I in Rome
We had the most amazing private tour of the Sistine Chapel – such a privilege..
Venice. It went from Sunshine in Burano to white out fog on the way back from lunch at Locanda Cipriani on Torcello…
The floor of St Marks Basilica – the skill of the artisan tilers was extraordinary.
Ortesei in Val Gardena for New Years and some skiing (badly on my part!)
London in January involves a lot of public transport….some were happier than others!
Friends were staying at Ham Yard hotel, definitely worth checking out – it had the best bowling alley in the world!!
When I am in London I always wander around Pimlico. So many fantastic things to see and shops to visit – Rose Uniacke is one…
