München, Germany - 4th May 2014

By: mcdaniels

Our first stop on our luxurious train-journey to Rome was Munich.
A nice town if you asked me.
Suddenly somebody said: "Look, the Peter's place! We've arrived Rome!" But unfortunately in Munich there's such a place as well  :cyclops:
The Peter's church has got a tower that you're allowed to climb up and of course we did. Great view!
After a while we entered the next train, the night train to Rome!
The sleeping car invited us to play a bit before having a night meal and then sleeping. Good night, when we'll awake we'll be in Italy  :D
Yours Mefito

Rome, Italy - 5th May 2014

By: mcdaniels

When we wake up in the early morning we looked out of the window immediately for getting a first impression of Italy...
In Rome we were very happy to arrive our nice little holiday flat near the Vaticanian wall. After a short time we walked to the city for the first time and were very impressed with the Engelsburg (castle of angels), the Engelsbrücke, the bridge across the river Tiber, the famous Piazza Navona and the very very old Pantheon.
Back home we needed some chocolate and felt into bed.
That was our first day in the  great town Rome.
Yours Mefito

Rome, Italy - 6th May 2014

By: mcdaniels

Today we visited the cathedral St. Peter for the first time. Wow! It looked very great and the place with it's fountains as well.
After these impressions we needed a refreshment: ICE CREAM IN ROME...LIFE MISSION!!!  :D :D :D It was so yummy...you can't imagine!
Then we visited the famous Trevi fountain. You have to throw a coin over your shoulder into the fountain, that brings luck and let you come back to Rome some time. In the course of a year there are thousands of Euros, Dollars etc. on the ground of the fountain which are for a good cause.
Back home we sat on the steps in front of our house. The small street is only for pedestrians, very good!
That's it for today, good night,
yours Mefito

Rome, Italy - 7th May 2014

By: mcdaniels

This morning we studied the map of Rome and tried to decide what to visit today. After three hours we reached an agreement but before starting we needed a refreshment...tea and cookies  :)
Then we started to the church St. Giovanni in Laterano with it's very nice inner courtyard.
On our way to the famous Colosseum we saw Oranges!
The Colosseum was very impressive just as the Forum Romanum we visited next.
Back home we had no questions any more...
Yours Mefito

Today we went to the basilica San Paolo fuori le Mura. This basilica with it's inner courtyard had been built up above the grave of the apostel Paul. Have a look at this great church!
Back home we sat together in front of our house and enjoyed the sunny evening.

Rome, Italy - 9th May 2014

By: mcdaniels

Today we walked through Rome for visiting the very famous Spanish stairs. Our way leeded us through the via delle Conziliazione, along the river Tevere and through typical narrow streets.
The Spanish steps looked great but there were so many people that you couldn't see much of it.
In the afternoon we went to the basilica St. Peter for entering the tower. Wow! What a sight!!!
After this long day we were very happy but tired and glad to be back in our street cliva delle muro vaticano.

Today we visited the old piramide, built up more than 2000 years ago.
Next to the piramide there is the old graveyard of the non-catholic people behind a very tall wall.
That's for today.

Rome, Italy - 11th May 2014

By: mcdaniels

Today we took another walk through Rome.
We saw some typical houses, some lemon trees, climbed some old steps and saw an observatory from a long way away. Through the trees we could throw a glance at Rome.
Back on the St. Peter's place we enjoyed the basilica in the evening light.
Yours Mefito

Rome, Italy - 12th May 2014

By: mcdaniels

Today we visited the famous park Villa Borghese, a large recreation area in the middle of this big city. At the weekend the park is full of Roman families but on Monday it was really empty.
Next to the entrance there was a nice fountain. In the park there was a lake with little rowing boats and of course we rowed  :D Look at the turtels in the background! After rowing we discovered a nice bike but unfortunately hostparents wanted to walk through the park. We saw many old trees, a fountain and we met Goethe  ;) We visited a nice garden, a Sphinx and a sculpture of a very sweet girl...I don't know why Bernie and PinkyHH were enthusiastic about the other sculpture...
On the way back home we saw a typical 'refreshment-car'.
Good night!

Today we visited Trastevere, a very nice district with the real Roman flair. The pictures speak for themselves...
We walked uphills to the Piazzale Giuseppe Garibaldi and had a fantastic view of the city!
And on the way back we discovered a funny cake  ;)

By: mcdaniels

Today we walked through typical old streets to the Campo de Fiori with it's famous statue of the monk and philosopher Giordano Bruno who had been killed as a heretic in 1600.
Then we visited the Isola Tiberina (the island in the middle of river Tevere) and walked back home along the river.
