Travel: Three Day Weekends

In the states, we have Labor Day weekend coming up – first weekend in September, which represents the end to summer and even marks the formal beginning of a school year.

But in the meantime, enjoy the photographs I borrowed from here and click here for everything else you need to know about Rome.
