Every year, my Italian dad has a bit of a knees up in Rome and invites friends from every corner of the globe to celebrate at a majestic villa perched on a hilltop overlooking the city.

Random, I know, but that’s the way it is!

Events organisers are drafted in from all over Italy to decorate the tables, co-ordinate the entertainment and arrange transport for over a hundred guests – frankly, it looks like a logistical nightmare and I’m quite glad it’s only once a year!

But it’s always a bizarre and spectacular experience, and it really does have the best view of Rome I’ve ever seen. I like it most at dusk when you can see the early evening lights start to twinkle in the city – beautiful.
