We arrived in Rome about 1940hrs and caught a cab to our Hotel which was about 1.5km away. A bit of trouble fitting the bike bag in the taxi but nothing a few occy straps couldn't fix! The Hotel seems nice, simple but neat and tidy.

... Trevor had some tips on the route as hes has been here since the weekend.
After that, Rach and I headed into town for the opening ceremony, trying to keep the eyes open by then. It was held in the Piazza Duomo which is quite spectacular and a cloud shrouded moon made for some good pics.
