    Sorpasso es a Vatikan

    March 18, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Miután kiangyaloztuk magunkat, a Vatikán fele indultunk, ahol persze kedvenc üzleteink is vannak, be is ujitottunk néhány darabot a tavaszi kollekciobol. Majd (szinten az airbnbs Ekaterina tanácsára) beultunk a spanyolos Sorpasso bárba, amit abszolút csak ajánlani tudok- isteni olasz sonka, parmiggiana (osszesutott padlizsán, cukkini, mozarella, paradicsomszosz és parmezan) na meg persze az elmaradhatatlan aperol spritz, megint befottes üvegből.
    Ezt követően uldogeles a San Pietro lépcsőn (ez is a szokasos, legalabb most nincs lezárva) de a kupolaba vegul nem mentünk fel, mert oltári nagy sor volt. Maradt a kinti lablogatas, majd haza pihizni a 23as busszal. (Vajon mit csinálhat a kaller?:)))

    Lunch date :)

    This place was an awesome escape from the crowds. We had to descend stairs off a main road to enter the venue. It was secluded, rich with culture, and very welcoming.

    Romantic evening

    October 17, 2015 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We had a wonderful, relaxing evening. Suzanne shopped for beautiful scarves in an open air market on a piazza. Then some wine, bread and cheese at a street cafe, followed by dessert and coffee at a family-run restaurant near our hotel. The first picture is the view from our hotel room.Read more

    Vatican City, Italy

    August 13, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    I've arrived in Rome!! After a bus, subway train, another bus, flight, shuttle bus and 1km walk, I've finally made it to Rome where Nana and Kim are. It was really great to see them both after 3.5 months away from home. Nana struggled with her knee on the flight so spent the day stuck in bed with it elevated, barely able to walk! Luckily she managed to take some pain killers that returned it to normal and she's been able to explore Rome with us. Our accommodation was literally 100m from Vatican City and we spent our first day on a tour learning all about the state within a state. I'm not religious so a lot of it went over my head or through one ear and out the other but the actual buildings were incredible. The long hallway museum through the Vatican was covered with the most amazing paintings depicting life as the Bible describes. We made our way to the Sistine Chapel and it was cool to see the Michelangelo paintings that the world talks about so much. Unfortunately the whole place is overrun by tourists so it's difficult to really grasp the spiritual vibe of the place. It's ironic that there are signs everywhere asking for people to be respectful, not take photos, cover shoulders and not talk, yet thousands of tourists are allowed in everyday without a limit. I'd love to see the city introduce time slots with limited tourist tickets or something similar to hold on to the serenity of such a religious place.Read more

    Rome - St Peter's Square

    October 16, 2015 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    After the Sistine Chapel we walked around the corner (not taking the ~18€ tour that would've let us skip 10 mins walk and that someone was trying to sell on every street corner) to St Peter's Square. Wow, it's gigantic!
    Despite its size and the fact it wraps around you, the Basilica manages not to loom over you. Apparently the idea is that it's like comforting arms.
    The line to get in to the Basilica ran along half the circumference of the square (which is a circle btw) but "only" took about 30 mins to get in. During that time we listened to another Rick Steves guide pointing out the features of the square.
    Oh, and Vatican City hires Swiss guards and has them wear this traditional uniform (#5). Still looks quite good I think!

    Vatican City

    May 16, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Second half of a very busy day in Rome! So much to see, so much walking! This afternoon was spent taking a guided tour of the Vatican City, the smallest city in the world. Highlights included the museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St Peter's Basilica. It is no wonder the artworks in this city are so renowned, the detail is incredible!Read more
