Rome - Friday, 2 April 2010

Good evening,

After a good night sleep..... breakfast in the hotel and off to the hop on - hop off bus. On our way to the bus we passed a market and of course we went to the market first... just a taste of Rome...
Finally we end up at the ticket office and got our tickets. At 11.30 we could get on the bus. So first we had a coffee and tea before leaving. I had a bad stomach so it was good to sit down and be near a toilet.

The bus took us to several places:

1. Piazza Dell'Esquilino
2. Colosseo
3. Circo Massimo
4. Bocca Della Veritá / Isola Tiberina
5. Piazza Venezia / Campidoglio
6. Piazza Chieza Nuova / Piazza Navona
7. Cittá del Vaticano
8. Ponte Sant'ANgelo
9. Ara Pacis
10.Porta Flamina / Piazza del Popolo
11.Via Ludovisi / Vis Veneto
12.Piazza Barberini
13.Piazza San Bernardo / Piazza Repubblica
14.Stazione Termini

After our tour and a visit to the Vaticano.... we couldn't get in.... hundreds of people try too.... so busy.....

We went for a good lunch near our hotel and back to the hotel for a short toilet visit.

Finally we went to a few shops in our street and bought some jeans for both of us.
Wonder happened.... I found summer shoes.... nice ones.... And I bought 2 pair of shoes. Wow.....

Then rest, rest and rest and in the evening back on the road to get some dinner in our favourite restaurant.
Now we are knock-out and having a rest and go to bed early again and get up early.
The weather is still very nice. We don't need our coats. Tomorrow it will be even better than to day.... said the man behind the front desk. Sunday rain is expected... That's okay, we had a few nice days.... so why not a bit rain... :(

Well, that's it for now. I'm going to check my pictures.
