I really think that walking around in the city is probably the most relaxing. Wherever you look, you see history and not just any history.

We started out at the Pantheon and I was probably again the most amazed about this building that was built in 27b.c. When you walk into the Pantheon, you can barely believe that this was built more than 2000 years ago. Of course the building had been renovated many times, but the celing and the entire architecture is still in tact - Awesome! Also, the Pantheon was excavated really late, I think in the 19th century and this is why it probably escaped the fate of many other awesome buildings in Rome. By the way, there is an awesome Gelateria (ice cream place) right on Via del Pantheon with some 100 different types of gelato - very cool.

We continued walking over to Fontane di Trevi, which is always nice. People always throw coins backwards in the water in the hope to one day returning to Rome. Besides the fantastic and most popular fountain of Rome, there are some good shops around and they are not too expensive. Anyhow, we spent some time there enjoyed the sun and then walked on towards the Spanish stairs.

We walked down the Corso a little until we hit Via Condotti which is right next to Via Veneto and those two streets are probably among the two most expensive streets in the world with a ton of luxury brand stores, similar to Rodeo drive or Fith Avenue. Anyhow, the more beautiful thing is that they come together by the Spanish Stairs, a place that is always full of people hanging out, drining wine snacking, chatting... good fun.

We ended up walking around some more, drinking some coffee and then finally heading home to where my sister had prepared yummy Spaghetti Carbonara for us.

Rome Sights

Rome, ItalyOne of the oldest cities in the world, Rome has been dubbed ‘the eternal city’ and ranks high in the list of the most preferred holiday destinations in the world. The Colosseum is on every tourist’s agenda, and for good reason. A day pass costs 11 euros, but if you want to take your time exploring, get a seven day pass for 22 euros instead. This gives you access to the Colosseum as well as everything from Palatine Hill to the catacombs. A guided tour is not really recommended since the queues are endless, and you don’t really get to know anything from the guides that you can’t get out of your travel book or... Read more »
