    Amazing cooking class and dinner

    November 4, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Where do I start. After a busy walking day, 30 minutes of rest and off again, this time to Tiberina Island for our pasta cooking class and dinner with wine of course! When in Rome!
    We had a tour, then got put to work... cutting vegetables, drinking wine, making pasta, drinking wine, sampling our ravioli stuffing of zucchini more wine then time to eat.
    Sleep now for tomorrow morning we head south to Naples. But first I want to add some pictures but took so many where do I start...

    Ciao da Roma!

    November 3, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    No time at the Heathrow airport to see or do much. We arrived in at Terminal 2 then took the shuttle to Terminal 5. Good bit of walking, but it felt good after a 7+ hours. Nope, didn't sleep much.
    Flights were great, all on time. On our 2 hour flight to Rome, I dozed a little but then we hit turbulence passing the Swiss Alps , beautiful view (I'll post those pictures later).
    On our approach into Rome I think I saw Vineyards, the the cruiseport which has a Princess and if you look really close, upper left is Disney.
    After clearing customs which took 5 minutes tops... scouted around for my driver from Avanti- there were at least 25 people with signs, wish I had my phone/camera out for that. Drive into Rome and Vatican city was wild but here at Hotel del Mellini for a few nights.
    Showered, unpacked and resting with my feet up until happy hour when I meet the rest of the group.

    kurzer Besuch in Rom

    February 23, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 8 °C

    Heute ging es schon um 5:30 Uhr los nach Rom, um Smitty vom Flughafen abzuholen. Die Vorfreude auf Smitty und Rom war groß. Leider regnete es aber fast ununterbrochen. Daher haben wir uns entschlossen, nur zum Aussichtspunkt Piazzale Napoleone im Park der Villa Borghese zu fahren. Von dort konnten wir immerhin bis zum Vatikan blicken 😜. Für die wenigen Kilometer vom Flughafen zum Aussichtspunkt haben wir knapp 1 Stunde gebraucht. Autofahren in Rom – nein ganz Italien – macht einfach keinen Spaß. Ziemlich durchnässt ging es nach dem kurzen Spaziergang zurück zum Auto und dann ab nach Castel Giorgio.Read more

    Piazza del Popolo

    January 31 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    Ein schöner Platz, der damals für öffentliche Hinrichtungen benutzt wurde und als nördlicher Zugang zur Stadt angelegt wurde. Die beiden Zwillingskirchen und der Obilisk (welcher ursprünglich am Circus Maximus stand) machen den Platz interessant.

    Day 3 Roma Part 1

    Today i visited churches and Piazza Venezia.
    In all of the churches you had to cover up and taking photos was a bit rude but most people took a few.
    All churches had army guards out the front. I mean proper guards with guns and camo.
    Ive come to conclusion if you melted down all the gold that is in Roman churches and sold it, you could fix greeces economic crisis. Maybe even the whole of europe would be out of debt. But Priorities right. You have to praise jesus in style.

    The first churches were in Piazza del Popolo. They are Santa Maria in Montesanto and Santa Maria dei Miracoli.
    After that i went to Santa Maria Minerva. It had this cool elephant out the front.

    From here i went to Piazza Venezia. It has this giant majestic building/monument called II Vittoriano. It was sparkingly white and i was able to take a lift to the top for a great view of Rome.
