Last summer, Conny, Markus, and I spent two wonderful days in Rome. It was our first visit in this beautiful city, so we were very curious to see all the historic sites.
Someone said, that frogs are not allowed to enter the Colloseum. Silly guy! Of course that is not true.
I wanted to take a look behind this fence to see if I can discover one of these ancient gladiators, but there was nothing interesting.
There was an accident in front of us which caused a traffic jam. We were not able to continue the tour.
Conny and I checked where we were – unfortunately we were too far away from a subway station, so we decided to stay on the bus.
On the way back to our hotel, I called Ms. Piggy and told her what we have seen on our first day in Rome.
On the next morning I tried to read an Italyn newspaper, but my Italyn was not good enough to understand anything – the pictures were nice though…
Before we started with the sigtseeing tour, Conny and I checked out the latest comments on my website.
And here I am sitting in front of one of these very nice Italyn restaurants. Rome has a lot of them!
This is the Trevi Fountain, which is the most famous fountain in Rome. It is quite impressive but unfortunately there were so many tourists that it was impossible to take a picture which shows the entire fountain.
I really liked the colorful houses. The red-orange color behind me is typical for houses in southern Italy.
After the lunch we continued with our sightseeing tour at the Forum Romanum. This is the central area of the ancient City of Rome.
As on the day before, the temperatures were quite high and I was happy when I saw this refreshing fountain.
We were really impressed by the central place, on which the oldest and most important structures of the city were built.
Here I am in front of one of the numerous historic buildings. Does anyone know which building it is?
The building behind me seemed to be an important one, but I forgot which one it was. We saw too many buildings on that day to remember them all…
Then we continued with the last point of interest for the day:
Vatican City, the smallest country in the world.
On our way back to the hotel, we had a short break at the bank of the Tiber river. What a nice place!
Once we arrived at the hotel, I could not wait to write a letter to Ms. Piggy to tell her about the great time we had in Rome.
On the next morning we flew back home. It was a wonderful trip and I really enjoyed every moment of it. Rome is a great city and definitely worth a trip! Arrivederci!
