    Rome - Exploring

    October 14, 2015 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    We'd booked a walking tour starting later in the day (yes, you have to book and print out your tickets for a free walking tour - Italy in general seems oddly bureaucratic while simultaneously lax about rule-following), so we had the morning to wander.

    There was a great view (#1) from the Trinità dei Monti, just at the top of the Spanish Steps (#2) (empty because they're closed for renovation). On the way we also saw orange trees at the roadside (#3), walked through the Villa Borghese Gardens (a smallish park we realised is bigger than Vatican City, #4), and via the Piazza del Popolo with its twin churches (#5).
    Stopped for lunch at a traditional Italian place and had my fist taste of really good Italian food (#6). Pasta always seems to be in small portions here (5 ravioli for 8€ ouch) and you order primo/secondo plates in addition.

    Borghese Park

    September 17, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Blick vom Park in Richtung Stadt. Der Park war der Privatbesitz eines Kardinals, damals schon eine große Kunstsammlung. Der Park soll zu einem Museumspark werden. Nun ja... Kunst ist nicht so unser Ding, deswegen eher der spannende Blick über die Stadt, als Erinnerung an diesen Trip.Read more
