    Roma in a day

    July 3 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    Left Sorrento for Rome and arrived at 12. Sped through Rome and saw the Trevi fountain, Sistene Chapel, St Peter's Basilica and the Colesseum then ate some pasta and had a gelato.

    On to Roma!

    August 23 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!

    Rome

    October 2 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.

    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

    Fontana di Trevi, Rome

    October 4, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    One of my favourite sites in Rome is the beautiful Trevi Fountain. Luckily for us it was so close to our apartment that we walked past it, or visited it, more than once every day. Many of the times the fountain and the area around it were so packed that it was almost impossible to even get a glimpse of it. Due to the closeness we made sure to visit early in the morning before the crowds arrived and later at night when the crowds had thinned out to take some photos, to sit for a while, admire it and appreciate the artistry.

    There is something about the whiteness of the travertine stone and the aquamarine colour of the water that creates such a contrast against the gritty backdrop of Rome. And different times of day and night and the weather conditions highlighted different aspects every time we saw it.

    Designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Giuseppe Pannini, construction began in 1732 and it was opened in 1762. Standing 26.3 metres high and 49.15 metres wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world.

    Coins are purportedly meant to be thrown using the right hand over the left shoulder. This was the theme of 1954's Three Coins in the Fountain and the Academy Award-winning song by that name which introduced the picture.

    An estimated 3,000 euros are thrown into the fountain each day. In 2016, an estimated €1.4 million was thrown into the fountain. The money has been used to subsidize a supermarket for Rome's needy; however, there are regular attempts to steal coins from the fountain, even though it is illegal to do so.

    It is one of my highlights from Rome, and I loved it every time I saw it.

    Walking to Trevi

    November 12, 2014 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    We were given time on our own. Glenda and I wanted to see the Trevi Fountain again, but more than that, we wanted to see a little pizzeria we had noticed on a previous trip here. We didn't know the name of the store. So we walked and saw all sorts of interesting things. First we came upon a demonstration by socialist workers, complete with a man in a sandwich board touting the injustices of the labor system. There was a bookstore that specialized in ancient, printed volumes. We came across our share of street actors, buskers, who impersonated everything from gangsters to popular celebrities. Finally we got to the Trevi Fountain to discover that it was covered with scaffolding for repairs. We went just past it and found the pizzeria named Yum-Yum Style Pizza. We had already enjoyed lunch, but another slice of pizza was tempting. Then we retraced our steps back to the Pantheon. Glenda went into a store that sold nothing but olive oil and spices. We got to sample some one-hundred-year-old balsamic vinegar. It was delicious.Read more

    Walking around Rome

    July 25, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    Woke up feeling 100x better after some much needed rest. We had breakfast at a little cafe, then set a brisk pace to see some of the relatively close landmarks to us. The Pantheon was impressive, and we also saw the Spanish steps, trevi fountain, campo de' fiori, and the Vatican.

    Had lunch and another small restaurant, and then booked it to the train station to take the 250km/hr train to Florence. Made it with 10 minutes to spare, and enjoyed listening to some interesting conversations the other passengers were having...Read more

    Fontana di Trevi

    May 29, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    The Trevi Fountain

    Designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Pietro Bracci, this iconic Baroque fountain served as a display of an ancient roman acqueduct termination.

    They say if you throw a coin over your shoulder and into the fountain, you guarantee your return to Rome. So... can you guess what we did? 💸💸
