    Absolutely Amazing!

    October 1, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    We have spent a very happy morning at The Colosseum. Can not explain the sheer magnitude of this place in time or history.
    The whole Colosseum still has the aura of the mighty empire who built it.
    Currently having lots of renovation done on the lower levels but still an absolutely fantastic place to visit.
    Would come again and again even though it's a very gory history!!

    On strike!

    October 1, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Honestly could not walk another step so I am protesting right here with this bottle of wine... oh and him in doors! (The ruins are the Circo Massimo) chariot racing arena built in the 6th century BC and was the first and largest stadium built in Ancient Rome and is still used today. (Although the beast hunts have stopped!!) And in the 1980s they uncovered tiered seating and the starting gates but covered them up again to a depth of 9 m....Read more

    Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

    October 2, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Have spent a very happy morning mooching through the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
    Completely in awe of the sheer size of the place and how much there is still left to discover.
    You can feel the importance of the area as you wonder through.
    Only criticism is lack of information for visitors, we are not archeologists therefore some of it just looks like piles of rock and brick.
    Very worth a visit and would highly recommend.

    Catacombe S.Callisto

    October 1, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Very interesting trip down into the catacombe. Founded in the 3rd century and the resting place of Popes who were all moved and hidden in the 8th century to keep them safe.
    Very informative guide who was very passionate about his faith and the persecution of Christians.
    Well worth a visit and very quiet.
    Be prepared for steps... no lifts here.

    October 12, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Arrived in a much warmer Rome on the flight from Amsterdam. The AirBnB apartment was lounge area, but fully self-contained and 2 huge bedrooms with their own ensuites. Literally 400m from the Colosseum, and walking distance to all the attractions.

    Visited all the major attractions except Vatican City...we simply didn't have time.

    We pre-booked a guided tour of the Colosseum including underground and Tier 3 which were great. Not many people are allowed to get to Tier 3. Really enjoyed seeing the underground tunnels, lions cages and a rebuilt lift that took the animals up to the arena floor. Tier 3 offered fantastic views of the whole colosseum and outside ruins.

    Tag 50: Ankunft in Roma

    August 11, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C dem letzten Tropfen Diesel gerade so in die Tankstelle geschlittert kurz vor der italienischen Hauptstadt 🙊😄😂 sind wir nun ca. 30 gemütliche Minuten vor Rom auf einem gemütlichen und kleinen Campingplatz 🏕️ der von Alessandro geführt wird.

    Er fährt uns dann morgen früh zum S-Bahnhof, von wo wir dann entspannt mit der Bahn ins Zentrum gondeln 😊 ...

    Ciao 😎

    Abendmalen mit Fausto am Castello

    October 14, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Das mittelalterliche Castello di Santa Severa an der Küste bei Rom bot uns heute Abend eine filmreife Kulisse zum Malen. Fausto liebt diesen mystischen Ort und hat spontan auf einem Holzbrett gemalt, welches er zuvor am Strand gefunden hat. Danke auch an Julia, die uns mit diesem entspannten Maler in Kontakt gebracht.

    The medieval Castello di Santa Severa on the coast near Rome offered us this evening a movie-like scenery for painting. Fausto loves this mystical place and spontaneously painted on a wooden board which he found on the beach before. Thanks also to Julia, who brought us into contact with this relaxed painter.

    Alle Wege führen nach Rom.

    August 15, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Drei Tage ROM 🏛️🎈 ...das ist mindestens nötig, um Einiges zu entdecken und die ganzen Eindrücke zu verarbeiten. 😬

    "Rom ist eine Welt, und man braucht Jahre, um sich nur erst drinnen gewahr zu werden. Wie glücklich find´ ich die Reisenden, die sehen und gehen."
