    The Old City of Rome

    July 28, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today we ventured out to see the main ancient and cultural sights of Rome. We walked a long way, but were rewarded with seeing some amazing things. We saw Piazza Navona, The Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, Trajan's column, Hadrian's column, to name just a few. We really walked a long way and it is tough on the feet walking on the cobbled streets of Rome all day. We did feel like pinching ourselves at times as we walked past such amazing places.Read more

    Ein langer Tag

    February 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Heute morgen starteten wir wieder mit der Metro in die Innenstadt und hielten zunächst an der spanischen Treppe, die wir uns alle irgendwie interessanter vorgestellt hatten. Umgeben von Luxusläden saßen wir deswegen einfach eine dreiviertel Stunde am Brunnen und genossen die Sonnenstrahlen und den blauen Himmel.

    Weiter ging es dann zum Trevi-Brunnen, der zwar wirklich imposant anzusehen war, jedoch auch total von Touristen überlaufen und wir waren froh, als wir unseren Weg durch Rom fortsetzten. Vorbei an einer Eisdiele, in der wir uns alle auf den Tipp unserer Lehrer hin mit Eis versorgten, ging es dann zum Pantheon. Anschließend wurden wir auf einem nahe gelegenen Platz entlassen und hatten nun von 14 Uhr bis um 20 Uhr heute Abend Freizeit, denn dann würden wir alle gemeinsam zum Abschluss der Fahrt noch in ein Restaurant gehen.

    Mitten in Rom standen wir nun also zu sechst da und konsultierten Google Maps, wie wir am schnellsten wieder zum Hotel kamen. Die Antwort: 3 km laufen. Den meisten von uns steckten die vorherigen Tage noch in den Knochen und so schleppten wir uns durch die Straßen Roms. Einen Mittagssnack, einen kleinen Einkauf am Hauptbahnhof und viele Foto- und Toilettenpausen später erreichten wir unser Hotel. Dort wurde geduscht und die meisten vielen wie tot ersteinmal ins Bett und ruhten sich bis zum Abend aus.

    Als es Zeit fürs Abendessen wurde, versammelten wir uns alle im nahegelegenen Restaurant, das zwar eher irisch aussah, jedoch trotzdem eine italienische Speisekarte hatte. Es wurde ein sehr lustiger, gesprächiger Abend und ein gelunger Abschluss der Romfahrt.

    Csak a szokasos...

    March 17, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Miután feltöltöttük az akkumulatorokat mind kajaval mind napocskaval, elkezdtuk a sétát és a szokásos helyek felderiteset, úgy mint a taskasunk, kedvenc Campo di Fiori és a környező üzletek, Navona (ami fura mód így tavasszal is tele van gesztenyearussal), majd irány a Trevi (igen, dobtunk!) és a tekintelyt parancsoló gyönyörű Pantheon (anyu kiolvasta a szakirodalmat is: 9m az oculus átmérője,Kr.e 21-ben kezdtek el építeni és ami hihetetlen számomra, egykor mocsaras talaj volt itt megis elbírja ezt a gigantikus építményt). Szóval összefoglalva sok sok gyaloglás, kis shopping, és Roma meg mindig a szívünk csücske. :)

    P.s: aludni nem tudom hogy fogunk, mert konkrétan annyira benn lakunk Trasteveren, hogy az ablakunk alatt levő lokálokbol meg a zsaluk ellenére is hangosan felhallatszik a zenebona. Anyu szerint olyan mint a 6os megalloja.:) meg jó h jó az alvokank! :)

    Rom - Trevi Brunnen & Pantheon

    April 21, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Nach dem Colosseum ging es dann zum Trevi Brunnen. Leider war dieser komplett ünerfüllt, aber wir hatten nichts anderes erwartet. ☺

    Danach hin es zu Fuß weiter zum Pantheon.
    Das Dach des Pantheon ist eine Perfekte Halbkugel, oben offen, mit einem 9 m loch. Trotzdem kommt aber nahezu kein Regen ins Innere. Falls doch, gibt es im Boden unterhalb der Öffnung 22 kleine löcher, durch welche das Wasser abfließen kann. 😀

    Mit ist übrigens im Pantheon ein klassischer "Wolf Nieser" ausgekommen. Halleluja das hallt da drinnen. Kurzzeitig standen wir im Mittelpunkt 😂😂😂

    Pantheon: Architectural Perfection

    November 12, 2014 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Our bus took us through some very narrow streets in the rain to the Pantheon, the Roman building that seeks to give tribute to all the gods. Whether the gods were pleased or not is a question that only they can answer. However, architecturally all of the knowledge of the classical period reaches its zenith in these two buildings: the Parthenon in Athens, and the Pantheon in Rome. It is covered by the largest dome ever made up to the time of its construction. None other as large could be made until the nineteenth century. The building techniques the architect used to lighten the load on the walls is a story in itself. It proportions and its construction leave one agape. It is a wondrous building. Incidentally, it is used now as a church, blessed by the Pope, and it contains the tombs of King Umberto, of Victor Emmanuel II, and of the artist Raphael. I stopped at a coffee shop just around the corner and had a lovely cup of strong espresso. Then after our visit to the Pantheon we met Debbie and Chuck for lunch at a sidewalk cafe. There was an accordion player there who seemed offended when we did not offer him a tip. I would have been much happier, though, if he had not made all his noise so near our table.Read more

    A former Roman temple that has been converted to a church. It is the most preserved and influential building of ancient Rome. It's name means "honor all Gods" in Greek, and was first built almost 2000 years ago as a temple to do just that.

    Fun Fact: The dome was the largest in the world for 1300 years, and until today it remains the largest unsupported dome in the world at 142 ft diameter! As a reference point, the US capital is 96 ft in diameter. A huge architectural achievement!

    Pantheon, Trevi Fountain

    May 3, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    On the way home from the Vatican City, we chanced upon the Pantheon. Rome is a bit like that. You think you’re just walking around a corner and then BAM!! You look up and your eyes get assaulted (in a good way) by some beautiful architecture bursting with history. We decided to rest our weary feet and sat on the steps facing the Pantheon. We soaked in its beauty from the outside whilst listening to a busker playing the guitar. It was the perfect way to wind down after a whole day of being on our feet.

    The Pantheon has the biggest brick dome in the history of architecture. It was originally built in 25 BC and dedicated to all the Roman gods. These days, it is used as a church. We got in just in time before the Pantheon was closed for the day.

    As we made our way to dinner, we were stopped in our tracks yet again. The Trevi Fountain. The Romans didn’t like to do things in small scales – this fountain is humongous! Following tradition, Flora threw a coin over her shoulder into the fountain. Apparently this means that she will definitely return to Rome. She awaits that day with great anticipation. Rome has been a real marvel.

    Night in Rome

    July 24, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Made it to Rome. Got absolutely zero sleep on the plane to Copenhagen, and Laura and Caty were pretty tired during the three hour layover. Got into Rome on time, and once we checked in to the room we rented, we both feel awake to head out to dinner. Rome was alive, and we sat down at a cute little restaurant where we could enjoy the great weather.

    The food was great, and the wine fantastic. Plan is to sleep in, get breakfast, and walk around to see a few of the landmarks before catching the train to Florence in the afternoon.
