    The Spanish Steps

    September 30, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Very large staircase... not gonna lie, too tired to climb but looked fab from the bottom.
    Very impressive fountain at the bottom and a lovely church at the top.
    Fill those water bottles now whilst you have chance!!

    Rome

    September 26, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Fortunately Take Five was exactly where we left her and none the worse for her summer holiday. But we were there less than 24hours before we headed to Rome. It has been a long day but we walked miles and visited Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Saint Angelo’s Castle, Pantheon, Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and lots of Churches. Here are a few photos, more from Vatican Museums on next post.Read more

    Good Night, Rome!

    November 8, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    This is the view out of our hotel room window. It's not the best view that we've ever had but I've seen worse. The rain is still coming down and I'm hoping that it lets up a bit tomorrow. We did so much good stuff today, and had a lot of fun, but I'm thinking that it would have been even better without the rain. Good night, Rome! I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!Read more

    Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti

    September 17, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Wer jetzt rätselt, was genau das sein soll: in Deutschland kennt man diese Sehenswürdigkeit als „Spanische Treppe“, benannt nach der Piazza die Spagnia, die am Fuße der Treppe liegt.

    Seit Kurzem ist es in Rom verboten, sich auf die Spanische Treppe zu setzen – eine Maßnahme, die nicht nur bei Touristen, sondern auch bei eingeborenen Römern Kopfschütteln ausgelöst hat und die leider viel von dem Charme dieser Attraktion zunichte gemacht hat.Read more

    Waiting for Our Room

    November 8, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    After leaving the subway, it took us a while to find where our hotel was. It was actually very easy to get there but, it being our first time here, we didn't know where to go. Like much of Europe, the streets don't seem to have many signs indicating their name. We also tried asking directions from some local police officers but none of them spoke English.
    We finally found the hotel but were told that our room wasn't ready for us to check in yet. We had expected that because it was still so early in the morning. We left our bags in the lobby but didn't want to go back out because of the rainy weather. The hotel staff was very accommodating and invited us to wait in their parlor. We decided to just stay here for a while and dry off. Right now, we're waiting for our room to be ready and also for Bryan to arrive. I wonder which one will be first.

    Breakfast

    November 8, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    After Bryan arrived, we decided to go out and have breakfast since all of us were starving from not eating on the plane. Bryan picked this place, Caffè Greco. We had never heard of it before but it's actually the oldest, and most famous, coffee house in Rome.

    Caffè Greco

    November 8, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Such excellent service! The waiters are obviously there to make us happy and it shows. This place is like stepping back in history to the 1700 and 1800's! Excellent hot chocolate and cookies. The crossiants not so much. This seems like the place to be when in Rome but quality always has it's price. I would definitely like to come back here before we leave!Read more

    Breakfast with a View

    November 9, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    I just made it into the Hotel Mozart's free breakfast buffet. Since I was the last one to make it into the shower, I'm naturally the last one to make it to breakfast. I'm liking the view out the window and feel happy that it's not pouring rain, like it was last night. I'll eat quickly so that we can get out and do some sightseeing before the rain comes back.Read more

    Breakfast with my Honey

    November 9, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Bryan was just leaving as I got there, leaving Kathy and I able to enjoy breakfast together. The food wasn't great but I certainly enjoyed the company. All I had was the scrambled eggs on on toast with plenty of water to drink. There was bacon available, which I normally can't get enough of, but this bacon looked awful. I wouldn't touch it! It reminded me of the bacon that was served in China. The eggs seemed greasy but passable and the toasted bread was exactly as I expected.Read more

    Leaving

    November 8, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Since our breakfast was only a drink and some pastry, we were ready to go soon after eating. Caffè Greco is such a beautiful place! It reminds me of when we went to Angelina's in Paris. It's a toss up on which place has the better hot chocolate. I wish that I could get a hot chocolate like what's served here back in America!Read more
