1952 The Continent by Car 

Townsend Channel Ferries

Rome, Wednesday
 We came on here today because Naples turned out to be a noisy, smelly, disappointing flop. We dined in the Santa Lucia  ---  lost the earth. Neapolitans (although charming) are all on the grab. Rome is very different, really beautiful.  One has to see St Peter's and the Coliseum to realise the spaciousness of the Roman idea of architecture. Florence, Pisa & the Italian Riviera tomorrow, I hope. S. 
Love to meet Tony. 
Are you keeping the cards?
