Rome

Monday, 10 August 2015

A few weeks ago I travelled to Rome for a few days to travel around the beautiful city.
I had a lovely time visiting all the famous landmarks; Colosseum, Roman Forum, St Peters Basilica and the Trevi Fountain to name a few. Talking about the Trevi Fountain, unfortunately it was closed and drained for renovation so missed out on seeing it in all it's glory! Still a beautiful piece of architecture. 
I was amazed by the history and architecture in this ancient city would defiantly recommend anyone to visit that city!
We had amazing hot wether those few days too and enjoyed some tasty, authentic Italian food also.

I spent the first day map reading and leading my sister and I around the city to some famous landmarks. That day we walked for miles, but all in the right direction to the suprise of me and my sister! My map reading skills are surprisingly very good :)
We found a small Italian, locally run coffee shop where my sister and I enjoyed a fruit salad and an ice cold drink after our trek in the blazing heat. It was lovely in there because it was all locals. 
Men would be coming in for there freshly made expressos, have a little chat then go on with their day. It was great to have found somewhere off the tourist hot spot area, You get to see the real Italy that way.

On the 2nd day my sister and I decided to get the hop on hop off, open top tourist bus. It was a great way to travel to all the main places in one day and it was quite reasonable. We spent the day in Vatican City, looking around the museum and St Peters. The history and work of Michelangelo is truly incredible!

On the 3rd and last day, we explored the Colosseum, Farnese Gardens and Roman Forum. Again this area is so rich in history it's strange to think about all the things that happened there and here you are, standing there 1,000's of years later.

It was a privilege to visit this fascinating city.
Here are a selection of photo's from my travels.
