    Palatin Hügel

    August 27, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Unser Tag führte uns im weiteren Verlauf direkt zum Einlass des Forum Romanum und des Palatin. Nachdem wir die erneuten Sicherheitskontrollen erfolgreich hinter uns gelassen haben, sind wir bewaffnet mit guter Laune, der Kamera und ausreichend (gratis) Wasser (danke hierzu an Rom mit seinen freien Trinkwasser Spender und Brunnen) direkt losgezogen.

    Das Areal ist recht weitläufig, eine kleine Herausforderung bei den Mittags Temperaturen in der prallen Sonne, aber der Ausblick und die alten Bau Monumente sind die Anstrengung alle mal wert gewesen.

    Wir haben einige der Eindrücke hierzu durch Quickshots eingefangen und ich kann es kaum erwarten die Bilder der Kamera auszuwerten!

    Die musikalische Unterstreichung an manchen stellen ist eine tolle Idee, die der Szenerie nochmal einen ganz anderen Flair verleiht.

    Da wir uns auch hier ausreichend Zeit nehmen wollten, haben wir nach der Besichtigung erstmal eine Pause veranschlagt, um die Füße zu schonen und etwas zu essen.

    Road to Rome

    June 8, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    I made a mistake in last post. It was Orvieto that we stopped at yesterday. Instead of tourist bus some of us ended up on a local bus with many stops before we got off, of course, at a church!
    We stayed our 2 nights in Rome in a former convent. When the elevator stops at floors a bell rings like a church bell. Have had trouble getting them to turn AC on and it is very warm, 28 C today.
    We left at 7:30 to tour the Vatican museum, the Sistine chapel, and St Peter’s Basclilliac had 50 minutes for lunch and then on to the Colosseum. I really liked it as it was easy to picture what it had been like. It helped if you had seen Gladiator or Ben Hur?? Better to be a gladiator than a slave because if you were a slave working on building the Colosseum you likely would last 6 to 12 months. Then to Forum and we were hot and tired by that time. It was 3 o’clock.
    Dinner at a local restaurant and good byes.

    Road to Rone

    June 7, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    We left Florence and stopped at SAN Gimignano a town very high up on a hill. We took an elevator and then buses to get to top. We had lunch in an Italian restaurant, 4 courses. In this case I did like the antipasto. At other restaurants I didn’t like it. A creamy tomato sauce on some pasta and then pizza and briscotti. The chef made homemade pasta and chatted while we were eating, don’t think l will be making pasta anytime soon! The town was beautiful and had a gelato and shopped. Very unusual location for a village.
    When we got to Rome we had a walking guided tour with a local...very crowded and hawkers everywhere, selling anything you could think of...hats, watches, umbrellas, paintings, purses, selfie sticks. Threw some English money in the Trevi Fountain, that was a madhouse, so many people. Walked to eat from their. Very different appetizers...started with a huge anti pasta and then chick peas and beans, pasta, and the main course chicken or veal or pork, and finally desserts. Walked to bus and had a tour of Rome at night. Will add that to tomorrow
