    Rom mit Kinderaugen entdecken

    August 9 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Heute geht es mit einer Rasselbande durch die Hauptstadt Italiens. Genau mein Ding. So bleibt bei der kindlichen Erklärung selbst bei mir etwas von der römischen Geschichte hängen. 😉 Bspw. "7-5-3-Schlüpft Rom aus dem Ei." 😁 Somit werde ich zukünftig wie aus der Pistole geschossen sagen können, dass Rom 753 v. Chr. gegründet wurde. 😎
    Da es heute bei 35 Grad meist luxuriös im klimatisierten Reisebus durch die Stadt ging, konnte ich nicht allzu viele Bilder schießen aber es wird nicht mein letzter Stop hier gewesen sein. Fortsetzung folgt somit...

    Florence to Rome

    September 26, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 64 °F

    We took the speed train to Rome this morning, arriving in early afternoon. The trains travel at a speed of over 200 mph, but it never felt like it. On the other hand, the taxi ride to our hotel was much more exciting. We only had a short opportunity to sightsee today as we picked up our tickets for tomorrow's Papal audience! Early start in the morning.Read more

    Rome now and in the past

    September 27, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 70 °F

    Yup, that's the Pope! We got up early to get to Saint Peter's Square for a papal audience today. We followed the advice of the priest who handled the tickets and got into a position for a close up photo op. Very exciting day. The man was about 6 feet from us.
    We also took a walking tour of the Colosseum and other historic sites this evening. We are tired, but content. Sistin Chapel tomorrow.Read more

    Le vatican

    August 14 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Ah enfin ! Le plus petit État du monde méritait qu'on s'y arrête !

    Très sincèrement c'était somptueux ! L'attente en valait la peine. Nous n'avons évidemment pas pu tout visiter et même pour être honnête nous n'avons vu qu'une infime partie mais c'était déjà splendide... On se sent tout petit à côté !Read more

    Le vrac

    August 14 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Voilà on a fait plusieurs post tout bien rangés mais il y'a pleins de choses dans un voyage que l'on voit qui méritent d'être montrées mais pourtant on ne sait pas dans quel post les mettre 😳

    Et bien ce post va servir à ça ! Les perles perdues...

    Rome & Vatican

    December 27, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    Short stopover in Rome today. Got up early today and skipped the lines at St. Peter’s Basilica today. Visited the dome and the church. Lunchtime at Casa & Bottega.

    Piazza Navona, Rome

    October 4, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    After the grime of Rome it was nice to visit the Piazza Navona. This is a very pretty (and clean) square built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, built in the 1st century AD, and follows the form of the open space of the stadium. The ancient Romans went there to watch the agones, games, and it was known as Circus Agonalis, competition arena.

    The buildings surrounding the square include the Palazzo Pamphili, the family palace of Pope Innocent X who reigned from 1644 to 1655. The church of Sant’ Agnes’s in Agone also faces the square and with the other beautiful buildings they make a lovely backdrop to the important sculptural fountains.

    In the center stands the famous Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi or Fountain of the Four Rivers, created in 1651 by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. I am still fascinated how the artists/sculptors could achieve so much detail and definition. So much talent.

    The other notable fountain in the Piazza is The Fountain of Neptune, created in 1574. This is another example of great skill and talent, and is striking against the orange tones of the building behind.

    This was the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee and a croissant while admiring the view and listening to a nearby busker play the guitar. And best of all this place didn’t appear to be on any tour guides so it was very uncrowded.

    Lunch at the Four Columns

    November 13, 2014 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    After visiting Vatican City, our Cruise Director Tony Campaiello took us all to a restaurant, 4 Colonne, just off the plaza at the Piazza Navona. We had an excellent meal, but I couldn't help notice the artwork on the wall. All of the pictures were paintings of very well endowed, unclothed women. To be gracious, I'll say it was sensual. This trip to the Piazza Navona, we took the bus back to the hotel so that we would have time to visit the catacombs on our own.Read more
