    Pantheon

    September 30, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    So cool and the words basically mean Agrippa was ere.
    They actually mean built by Agrippa.
    So fantastic lit at night. No idea why they felt the need to build it so big!!!
    It's the oldest , most intact, piece of Roman architecture in the world.Read more

    er Faciolaro, Roma

    November 23, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    We decided on an early night to try and get some sleep and to get our body clocks into the right time zone, so an early dinner was planned, we just weren’t sure where with so many amazing restaurants and cafes about. Everything looked good but we were too tired to make a decision. We ended being easily enticed by a charming Italian man to try his family’s restaurant, er Faciolaro, and it lived up to his hype.

    I had forgotten the small things the Italians do to add to your dining experience, from the complimentary glass of Prosecco at the start of our meal to the limoncello shots at the end. Our first meal in Rome was delicious and the drinks added to our holiday vibe.

    The Pantheon

    November 9, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 52 °F

    It was a bit longer of a walk than I had expected but we finally made it to the Pantheon. The Pantheon is the best-preserved ancient Roman building in Rome. Because the Pantheon was turned into a church, it was kept remarkably well-preserved. In fact, you can still experience the building much as the ancient Romans would have. Sure, some things have changed (there’s a Christian altar here now, for example, and frescoes of saints), but the dimensions of the building, along with much of its decoration, has remained the same.Read more

    No Entry

    November 9, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 54 °F

    We quickly discovered that nobody was being allowed inside the Pantheon right now because of a church service that was taking place inside. We could either line up and wait for a chance to get in or we could leave and start heading back to the hotel.Read more

    Out and About

    November 9, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 54 °F

    Despite the weather, there were lots of people out and about. I wondered if they were here to see the Pantheon or were just out for a night on the town. This area seems to have lots to bars and restaurants so it could be either choice. At least we're not too far back on the line to get inside the Pantheon.Read more

    Faces in the Fountain

    November 9, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 54 °F

    I'm glad that we're getting to see this fountain at night, in the rain. The dark wetness give it a very different sort of a look than what I would expect to see during the day. These faces have a very macabre and creepy look to them right now.Read more

    Still Listening

    November 9, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 52 °F

    This mass seems to keep going on and on. It's all in Italian, or possibly Latin, so we can't even really listen to it or have any idea how much longer it has to go. I just hope it ends soon. This fountain out front is keeping me interested in the meantime.Read more
