When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
Except the fact that these days, only tourists do what romans then used to do. Not sure if they are used to eating pasta and pizza back then but I think they entertained themselves at the coliseum watching beasts maul gladiators, visit the Pantheon and pray at the Citta De Vaticano. Exactly what i did 🙂 I arrived just after lunch…..better to grab a bit first at the Colosseo.
There are just so many monuments, so many statues, complete or incomplete. To go through the 2000+ years of Catholic history in 2 days was extremely interesting but overwhelming. It made me reflect and kept me dazed for days…….
Outside the Colosseo, Caesar wouldn’t be too pleased to know that his minions are wearing Nike shorts underneath the glistering armour. “Picture friend? Come on !! Va Bene !! Cheap. No? Tutto Va Bene !! “…… They never give up. It’s the Italian spirit. J
Head off to Piazza Navona. This has got to be my favorite part of the city. Good for people watch, street perfomers aplenty.
I wonder what music can they conjure if the two of them decide to work together……
The Pantheon is just minutes away. Free Entry. I bet you see the Pantheon’s dome in countless travel guides. And as usual packed with tourists…….
Colonel Sanders made my Cafe Latte round the bend at Sant Eustachio. Frankly, I don’t get the “my Italian coffee is better than your French press” Or the “ohhh……barista artworks on my cappuccino”. Coffee is coffee. Sant Eustachio serves them the old fashion way, the way I like it.
Yawns…….Coffee doesn’t work.
