I was one hour in advance and, as usual, I have decide to enjoy this time just for me.

It was not scheduled, I got off at Colosseum metro (instead of Cavour) turned left (instead of right) and started strolling around.

When I arrived at Via dei Querceti it was inevitable not to look up.

At the entrance there was a bunch of tourists, once for a while very polite and respectful, I waited for them to enter while I took some shots outside.

It is just wonderful 😍 and maybe it is not a big idea to do the tourist just before going to work or maybe every moment is the right one to enjoy the beauties of this city!

A friend of mine created us motto by always saying “enjoy life”!
