    Einige Wege durch Rom

    September 4 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Um 8.00 sind wir wach und fangen langsam mit packen an. Auschecken, am Bahnhof Mittagessen organisieren und Frühstücken und zack sind wir im Zug nach Rom. Dieser ist zuerst ziemlich voll, leert sich aber dann in Florenz fast komplett. Wir beleiben noch 2 Stunden sitzen umd kommen so endlich in Rom an.
    Mit der Metro gehts zu unserer Bleibe. Die Lage ist grandios. Wir Schlafen 10 Minuten von der Engelsburg und 15 Minuten vom Vatikan entfernt 😁
    Nach dem wir sehr herzlich begrüsst wurden, machen wir uns auf den Weg um uns schon mal eine Dosis Metroploe zu holen.
    Unsere Lage erweist sich als so super, dass wir in den nächsten Stunden kaum aus dem Staunen kommen. Als erstes halten wir beim Pantheon, der ältesten erhaltenen Kirche in Rom, danach gehts weiter zum Trevi Brunnen und als Abschluss zur spanischen Treppe. Als die Füsse dann doch etwas schmerzen setzen wir uns für ein Apero hin und überlegen wo wir zu Abend essen.
    Die Wahl fällt auf das Margot. Ein Kellerlokal in der Nähe von St. Angelo mit etwa einem dutzend Tischen auf dem Gehweg. Die Athmosphäre ist idyllisch und romantisch, das Essen köstlich. Nach den Mengen an Essen und Wein schleifen wir unsere Füsse nach Hause und freuen uns auf die Engelsburg und den Vatikan am nächsten Tag.

    Piazza del Popolo

    September 30 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Finally exploring Rome and we began with a piazza that is unique is as much as it had a giant Egyptian obelisk in the centre and 2 identical churches at its edge. The 4 lion fountains were built in 1828.
    In Rome there are 6000 fountains all of which you can drink from.

    Ciao da Roma!

    November 3, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    No time at the Heathrow airport to see or do much. We arrived in at Terminal 2 then took the shuttle to Terminal 5. Good bit of walking, but it felt good after a 7+ hours. Nope, didn't sleep much.
    Flights were great, all on time. On our 2 hour flight to Rome, I dozed a little but then we hit turbulence passing the Swiss Alps , beautiful view (I'll post those pictures later).
    On our approach into Rome I think I saw Vineyards, the the cruiseport which has a Princess and if you look really close, upper left is Disney.
    After clearing customs which took 5 minutes tops... scouted around for my driver from Avanti- there were at least 25 people with signs, wish I had my phone/camera out for that. Drive into Rome and Vatican city was wild but here at Hotel del Mellini for a few nights.
    Showered, unpacked and resting with my feet up until happy hour when I meet the rest of the group.

    Ara Pacis

    May 11 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    They have housed this archaeological puzzle in a very nice building. Not a must see but impressive it's own singular way. The Romans were certainly fascinating and busy people!

    In 13BC the Roman Senate had the Ara Pacis Augustae erected on the Field of Mars in honor of the Emperor Augustus who had returned victorious from battles in Gaul and Spain insuring peace in the Roman Empire. Augustus fulfilled the prediction made in the Roman epic: The Aeneid to "bring back the golden years to the field of Latium." Anchises predicted that Augustus would "govern the peoples of the world" and Virgil wrote "…it is a god who gave us this peace – for a god he shall ever be to me." Over the years the altar was buried by floods and silt from the River Tiber and it was Mussolini who instructed Giuseppe Moretti to reconstruct and restore the masterpiece. Today a protective building houses the restored altar.
    The square, four sided altar is decorated with mythological figures and historical scenes of peace and prosperity which were intended to remind people of the ruler's achievements, competence and the importance of piety and peace. The stone reliefs on the structure depict women and children symbolizing Augustus' pro-family stance; processions show men in togas which represent Roman citizenship and one of the processions is led by Augustus himself. Romulus, Remus and the she-wolf are also depicted. An allegorical scene shows the Goddess Roma sitting on a pile of foreign armor representing the peace Augustus brought following war.

    kurzer Besuch in Rom

    February 23, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 8 °C

    Heute ging es schon um 5:30 Uhr los nach Rom, um Smitty vom Flughafen abzuholen. Die Vorfreude auf Smitty und Rom war groß. Leider regnete es aber fast ununterbrochen. Daher haben wir uns entschlossen, nur zum Aussichtspunkt Piazzale Napoleone im Park der Villa Borghese zu fahren. Von dort konnten wir immerhin bis zum Vatikan blicken 😜. Für die wenigen Kilometer vom Flughafen zum Aussichtspunkt haben wir knapp 1 Stunde gebraucht. Autofahren in Rom – nein ganz Italien – macht einfach keinen Spaß. Ziemlich durchnässt ging es nach dem kurzen Spaziergang zurück zum Auto und dann ab nach Castel Giorgio.Read more
