    Quick Blick @ Roma (Part 2)

    April 29, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Nach der Mittagspause geht es weiter zum Piazza Venezia, dem Piazzo Venezia zum Altare delle Patria. Von hier hat man ein schönen Blick zurück zum Petersdom und über das alte Rom.

    Vorbei am Forum Romanum zum Colloseum. Noch ein kurzer Abstecher zum Circus Maximus und nochmals vorbei am Colloseum bevor der Weg zurück zum Hauptbahnhof geht.

    Das war ein Tag in Rom. Ich denke ich habe alles wichtige mitgenommen und war sogar im Petersdom. Damit hätte ich nicht gerechnet. Natürlich fehlt mir vieles aus der Nähe und auch das Forum Romanum von innen oder das ein oder andere Museum. Wer weiß, vielleicht wirkt ja auch meine Münze im Trevi Brunnen? Dann wäre ich ja bald wieder hier.

    Mit 6 Std. und 13.42 km war es wirklich nur ein Quick Blick, aber ich fand Ihm sehr gut.

    Chiesa del Gesù

    May 10, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    The entrance to this church was hard to find only because the address was listed on the street behind when you simply enter the front, but interesting as the first and model Jesuit church. It is one of the more lavishly decorated churches we visited in a city full of lavish decorations.

    The Church of the Gesù (Italian: Chiesa del Gesù; is the mother church of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), a Catholic religious order. Officially named Chiesa del Santissimo Nome di Gesù all'Argentina (English: Church of the Most Holy Name of Jesus at the "Argentina"), its facade is "the first truly baroque façade", introducing the baroque style into architecture. The church served as the model for innumerable Jesuit churches all over the world, especially in the Americas. Its paintings in the nave, crossing, and side chapels became models for Jesuit churches throughout Italy and Europe, as well as those of other orders. It is interesting to see the home of the Jesuits, given the prominence of that order in early North America, where we still have today many schools, colleges, etc. with names like Loyola and St. FX
