      Kolosseum

      June 5, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

      Nach dem Frühstück ging es direkt zum Kolosseum. Die Schlange ist länger als die Schlange für Bananen in eurer Jugend. Aber wir sind noch voller Motivation. Heute gibt es nämlich gratis Tickets🥳

      Piazza Navona + Saint Ignazio Church

      May 18, 2022 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

      We went to this Piazza and then got pizza and ate it next to the fountain. This church had a dome painted like a dome but it was actually a flat ceiling painted to look like a dome. Don’t mind the odd angles- everything was quite tall so I couldn’t reach for a nicer frontal view.Read more

      Tag 2 Teil 2

      June 4, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

      Hier nochmal ein kleiner Überblick über den Tag:
      Nach der langen Wartezeit haben wir es in den Petersdom geschafft, wofür wir 5€ Eintritt gezahlt haben (leider überflüssig). Trotzdem sehr interessant :)
      Anschließen haben wir uns kurz einen Snack gegönnt und sind zum Pantheon geschlendert.
      Zwei Mal waren wir auf dem Plazza Navona und haben die St. Agnes betrachtet.
      Den Abend haben wir in einer Bar ausklingen lassen 🍺🍹

      Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

      October 2, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

      Have spent a very happy morning mooching through the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
      Completely in awe of the sheer size of the place and how much there is still left to discover.
      You can feel the importance of the area as you wonder through.
      Only criticism is lack of information for visitors, we are not archeologists therefore some of it just looks like piles of rock and brick.
      Very worth a visit and would highly recommend.

      Stow Your Bags

      July 30, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 90 °F

      Who knew luggage storage all over the city was the norm?!? I couldn’t check into the AirBnB after disembarking the ship until 3 PM, but also wanted to maximize our short time in Rome; so I was referred to a company all over Rome called Stow Your Bags. Thankfully, we found a place 0.3 miles from the AirBnB, but I have to say, a little misleading on the size…a Max size says it will hold 4 bags, so I reserved one locker. When we arrived this morning, I was shocked to find that their Max size would only fit 1 of our bags 🤦‍♀️ Thankfully I had the ability to book on site and booked 2 more lockers so we could get to our tours.

      It was pretty comical hauling our 3 large suitcases and 2 backpacks all over the “san peitrini” streets which resemble cobblestones. On the walk to the luggage storage we passed some nice al fresco dining places, shops, and cafés.

      Back for a bit in Roma

      July 7, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

      Before and after Napoli we stayed in Rome. We saw Charlie and Dash - our close friends from high school and who are travelling during uni holidays. We saw a little cat shelter while with them and got dinner at a that was close but far enough away from the Colosseum that it was a more local restaurant.

      After Napoli we came back and stayed at Pietro’s while he was away and also spent a night at Sara’s Nonna’s. We looked after his cat. His cat is a diva. It woke us up at 5am and it’s meows sounded like it was dying. We have a deep love for this cat but we absolutely despise it. It has huge yellow eyes that stare deep into your soul. I went to the bathroom and had to wash my hands in the kitchen because it wouldn’t get out of the bathroom sink. We do miss it now we are gone though.

      We saw Elena- another girl from school (yes everyone is currently in Europe- we ran into two girls we knew completely by accident on the street). She is Italian too and Sara grew up with her. We went to a swimming pool to see her and it was so nice to do some laps and be in the water.

      We walked into a musical one night and watched for a bit and then I have added a photo from when we were in Rome at the start of our trip and Elisa Blu did our makeup. Then there are also some pictures of her trying to kill us last night. Io morta !

      I’ve also put in a FaceTime screenshot with Rusty who I miss a lot.

      The heat in here has been insaneee. We thought we were just being weak until we heard Pietro tell us that it’s the hottest Rome has been for a hundred years. It’s 39 degrees today and some train routes were closed because of fires so it’s completely opposite here to Sydney .. you can really see how happy I am walking around with my bag. Sara caught this candid on the go.

      54 Hours In Rome

      November 1, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 73 °F

      Day 1 We woke up at 4:30am threw on some clothes and made our way to the Catania airport for Rome. (Sadly the balcony breakfast has come to an end 😢) We arrived in Rome and got picked up by a car service, first impression is how busy it is!!! We arrived at our hotel got changed and walked 30 minutes to a local market only to find out it is was closed for All Saints’ Day. We then ventured to the Jewish quarter and had fried artichokes, one of their specialties. It was super packed so we left and walked to an area closer the our place in Trastevere. We had an amazing lunch followed by more walking and sangrias. (Who would have known amazing sangria in Italy) We made our way back to the hotel and I took a nap while Klaus worked. After a little siesta, we changed and headed downstairs to a cute wine bar with tapas. We were both tired so off to bed in hopes of an early morning of exploring.
      Day 2 - Woke up and went to the roof top of our B&B for a cappuccino and croissant, not quit the same as Sicily but charming in its own way! 27,883 steps and 13.53 miles later we saw a lot 😂. The morning walk sadly started with a young man taking his own life by jumping off the bridge into the Tiber River. We arrived just after he jumped, he was floating face down and the water rescue and the entire Roman police force was arriving to retrieve his body. Sooo Sad 😞. First stop was the Pantheon, such a beautiful church. Second stop the Trevi Fountain, followed by a aperol and a slice of roman pizza. We passed by the Spanish steps for a quick photo opp before doing some shopping. After the shopping we stopped and had a wonderful lunch. Klaus left me and went back to the B&B for a couple of video calls. I decided to walk to Vatican City to see St Peter's Basilica, it was well worth the extremely long lines. Pictures don’t do it justice!!! Klaus met me outside the Basilica and we walked back to the shopping area to buy “Creed”. We put our hotel into our GPS only to discover it was a 40 minute walk back and our feet were burning. After finally convincing Klaus that maybe we should take an electric bike back to the hotel we couldn’t find one that was charged. 😂😂 We made it back, changed our shoes and walked (limped) to the restaurant I have been wanting to try and once again the line was around the block. (Like the craziest thing I have ever seen.) We went to the restaurant next door and thought the wine and bruschetta was terrible so we paid and left. We walked back towards the hotel to a restaurant the hotel had suggested and it did not disappoint!!! We went for a quick walk before heading back to the hotel and going to sleep.
      Day 3 - Woke up early, packed our bags, grabbed the rooftop cappuccino, checked out and made our way to The Arch of Constantine for the Colosseum tour. We had an amazing few hours seeing and learning about Rome’s history. We visited the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and ended at The Roman Forum. After the tour we rented E bikes and biked to a town called Testaccio that has a market with street food and vendors. We sampled amazing pizza and prosecco. We walked down the street and had lunch at Pecorinos before getting back on the bikes to the hotel. We dropped the bikes off and had a coffee at a local bar that Stanley Tucchi had visited. Klaus had a video call for work before the taxi picked us up for the airport. Off to Vienna, Bye-bye Rome.

      THE COLOSSEUM (by Andrew)

      September 2, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 72 °F

      I went to Rome with my daddy and my mommy and my brother. We went to the Colosseum. The Colosseum is a very big stadium for gladiators and a lots and lots of people who watch the gladiators fight for there life or they will meet there doom! The gladiators fought together and most gladiators had a difficult time in battle. Some gladiators used a trident and a net and spear some gladiators used a sword and shield and a spear for battles.Read more

      Nice description Andrew. I remember visiting the Colosseum. It was huge and they told us they could fill the center with water so they could reenact sea battles using boats

      Rom Teil 2

      July 23, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

      Wir haben es trotz Hitze heute echt geschafft den Campingplatz schon um 16 Uhr zu verlassen, damit hatten wir dann genug Zeit um uns heute ganze drei Attraktionen anzusehen. In das Pantheon kamen wir leider nicht hinein, aber dass hat das Colosseum dann umso mehr wettgemacht.
      Ich muss sagen, ich komme langsam auf den Geschmack mir solche Sachen erst am Abend anzuschauen, das Licht taucht dann doch alles in eine noch unwirklichere Atmosphäre.
