    On to Roma!

    August 23, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    After a lovely relaxed morning we said goodbye to Venice, we probably could have had another day here but there is always next time! I am going to learn Italian when we get home as it would make life much easier and I love Italy❤️.

    We boarded our train and once again had a relaxing trip with table service and free water, drinks and snacks! Very civilised.

    On arrival in Rome we were hit with two things - millions of people and the heat! After a bit of research we hopped on a local bus and found our hotel which was a lovely hotel with a big room. Had a brief rest then it was out to explore. We found the Spanish Steps and the Trevi fountain, which considering the heat and people was amazing.

    One thing about Rome everywhere you look there is history, beautiful buildings, fountains, statues and gardens. Back to the hotel for dinner and an early night to build up our strength for a full day tomorrow!

    Trevi Brunnen

    August 28 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Nach Abschluss der Stadtrundfahrt entschlossen wir uns, von der gewählten Haltestelle aus direkt zum Trevi Brunnen zu gehen. Dieser lag mit knapp 1km durchaus in Fuß Reichweite und wir haben auf dem Weg dahin den Charme der kleinen Seitengassen genossen und ein wenig Schaufenster Bummel betrieben.

    Am Brunnen angekommen war dort weniger los als erwartet, was uns die Möglichkeit gab den einen oder anderen Schnappschuss zu erstellen und es lohnte sich auch, kurz die Kamera auszupacken!

    Nach einem köstlichen Gelato dort ums Eck, zogen wir ohne große Umschweife weiter.

    Rome

    October 2, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Rome!

    After only being able to check in very late, we decided to have a sleep in then started our day at the Spanish steps, to which we were greeted with 10 minutes of rain while we huddled with a group under a balcony.

    From here, the Trevi Fountain! So beautiful, one of a kind. Here we enjoyed some Gelato, Orange chocolate for me, Pistachio for Kody. Then to the Pantheon.

    Finishing off at Piazza Navona for lunch and afternoon Aperol Spritz’ - happy hour €3.

    De la fontana di Trevi al Panteon

    February 26, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Caminamos un poquito y llegamos a la fontana de trevi. Era super linda y nos llamaron la atencion las esculturas. 

    Los tres pedimos un deseo y tiramos una moneda. A papa no se le va a cumplir porque tiro solo 5 centavos!

    De camino al hotel pasamos a conocer el panteon. Cuando entramos vimos que era enorme y el techo ya no tiene bronces. Por el agujero entraba la luz del sol. 

    A mi me gusto mucho mucho

    Roma - Trevi Fountain and Pantheon

    September 21, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    A very big walking day today, so our feet were feeling the effect of all the uneven stone and the distances covered by the time we got home. But, still not a complaint from the children!

    Our original AirBnB was cancelled last week and we have ended up in a newly renovated apartment near the Termini - so new that we think we are the first guests to ever use it. We are connecting the water to the washing machine and the dishwasher in order to use them, opening the manuals to work out how to use the brand new appliances etc. It is a great location so lots of walking has been occurring as a result.

    We started our day with a visit the Trevi Fountain. Apparently, every other visitor to Rome had exactly the same idea. Nanny bought the kids their first Italian gelati – delicious!

    Craig had banned all sightseeing of the interior of the "fake Pantheon" in Paris, but this one was open slather, being the real one and all that, and free, unlike the fake Pantheon which was charging for entry. On the way, we stumbled across the façade (remaining columns) of Hadrian’s Temple on the way, which is now tastefully attached to the side of a bank. A good chunk of the crowd who were at the Trevi Fountain had also moved on to the Pantheon (Roma is VERY busy but in a fun way). The Pantheon was just incredible and so well preserved. As it was a bright sunny day, the sun was shining through an almost perfect circle on the interior of the dome.

    The Piazza's of Rome, Italy

    October 5, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Set off early to wander around Rome today, 13 km walked over many cobblestoned streets. We visited the Trevi Fountain, missing the crowds, then onto the Spanish Steps. The Spanish Steps are a set of steps that climb a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base up to the Trinità dei Monti Church at the top. We then meandered through the backstreets past the Piazza Di Pietra, which has the remains of enormous colonnades from a temple which dominates the Piazza, onto The Pantheon, which was a former Roman Temple but is now a Church. The Pantheon's dome is still the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome, which is amazing as it was built around 1900 years ago. After a well earned Italian coffee with corneta (croissant) we headed towards the Piazza Navona, which has the Fountain of the Four Rivers and the Obelisk of Domitian, in the centre of the Piazza. Our trek took us back past the Piazza Venezia, near the Roman Forum to Santa Maria Maggiore Church. We went inside the Church which has amazing 5th Century mosaics and gilt gold ceilings.Read more
