Roman Holiday, 1953! A girlish Audrey Hepburn and a swashbuckling Gregory Peck!
A princess making a last bid for freedom before dull matrimony and the burden of the kingdom buries her in boredom. A dashing and gallant journalist (are there any of those anymore?) shows her around breathtaking Rome.
Roman Holiday, 2013! A middle aged Shesh and Radhika! (I’ll spare you the photograph).
Retracing the steps of Audrey and Gregory, eating way too many gelatos for their own good. Exploring still breathtaking Rome.
From the Colosseum to Trastevere, the Jewish Quarter to Isola Tiberina. From Piazza Navona with its Fountain dedicated to the four mighty rivers of the world, to the wildly popular Fontana di Trevi.
And also the vibrant and colourful Campo de’ Fiori.
In the words of Princess Ann, “I will cherish my visit here in memory, as long as I live.”
