Sep 20, 2007 - Rome, Italy

Hi everyone - Well, we made it to Rome. Since we got here yesterday at noon, we have been going non-stop. We have seen St. Peter's Square and Cathedral, Sistine Chapel, which was incredible, taken a bus tour around town and seen the Colisium, the Forum and many churches. We missed getting into the Forum tonight for several reasons, so I did not get to be "in" the Temple of Vesta, but I got to see it from a distance. The area was closed before we got in there, which made me very sad. But there are many more temples to see as we progress on...

Sep 17, 2007 - Roma: A lifetime isn't enough

What can I say, but that we love Rome! Everyone who told us to get out of Rome as soon as possible is going to get a talking to when we get home! Im not sure what made Rome click for us, but it was certainly a nice change of pace after 2 weeks of slow farm life and a few days in quiet Campobasso. We did a fair amount of just wandering around the city and taking everything in. We discovered that this was actually a pretty good way to stumble upon some beautiful and historic spots of Rome. (Its hard to walk more than 50 ft without stumbling...

Sep 11, 2007 - Pizza

Rome had a lot of walking and people that didn't speak anything but italiano ,nice statues , icecream pasta pizza , beautiful squares and padestrian streets and a very cool dude from scotland that had a pub there and i had a great time. I went in Rome by myself without having booked a hotel and i have to say although they don't speak other languages they helped a lot in everything i needed. the town is too easy to navigate and too friendly. That was my only solo trip till now and one of the best

Sep 9, 2007 - To Rome or not to Rome

Sooooo I started writing this big entry and then the stupid french computer ate it so I'm abridging. From Brussels we headed back to Paris. Long story short I'm retarded and had to spend an entire day and night alone in Paris... by myself. I stayed in the Montmart area which is really nice however I noticed on my map that the Moulin Rouge was just a couple blocks down so I thought I'd go have a look. Poor idea... very poor idea. Turns out that's the red light district and even in the best part of the day not a place to be a single white...

Aug 22, 2007 - The first 48...

Sorry the first entry is so late - internet points are hard to come by in Roma, quite apart from the fact that we have been on the go since we arrived!! Anyway, here is our first entry. We hope you enjoy it; we certainly enjoyed the experience behind it! Nothing like going in boots and all when you go on holiday, we always say! The first 48 hours of this trip have been chock-a-block and now we are finally settling down for a good night's sleep. It all began for Angela and me with an early start so we could go and watch our 8-month old...

MARS 7 Expedition

Aug 22, 2007 - Rome

Roma!!!!! Our first stop on our honeymoon. Our course we have visited all the main sites such as the Collosium, the Vatican, the Sistine chapel, the Trevi fountain, the Roman Forum, etc. Our favourite by far was the collosium. We actually paid for a tour at the collosium (not common for us) and found out that an estimated 1 million people have been killed in the collosium, and that admission had never been charged from its creation until about 1997. I guess they need the revenue now. Before you go to Italy, there are a few things you should...

Aug 21, 2007 - Rome

They say that Rome wasn't built in a day, and thus it certainly can't be seen in one. We had a great taste of this amazing city today, and we are definitely planning to return in the future. We started our adventure in Rome at the Coliseum, which is even more impressive in person than it is in pictures. To think that people were visiting this structure to watch gladiatorial contests and other events nearly 2000 years ago boggles the mind. It's also an exercise in imagination, since even historians disagree on how the destroyed parts of the...

Aug 17, 2007 - Roma - With Naples update

Hello to Thanks for the E-mails and the love you send. Naples update. Our last night in Naples we went to a family restaurant about one block from the hotel, "Trattoria dei Milanesi" run by a husband & Wife and daughter and grand daughter (Nancy 12 years old) the food was great and it was not main avenue restaurant fare but down home cooking. There are 8 tables for guest and 2 for the family to sit and chat. Although there are No Smoking signs everywhere the family lit up at will. The smoke did not bother us and you could not tell they...

Aug 14, 2007 - Rome - Snaps, Sights & Wisdom.....

We arose about 10am to a beautiful sunny day in Rome and ventured down to the garden for breakfast. Unfortunately, they had already started to clear most of the culinary delights by the time we arrived, so much time was spent gesticulating wildly and speaking in appalling Engtalian to get some nosh. Beautiful surroundings for breakfast though as you can see by the photo. Afterwards, we left the hotel and wandered around aimlessly for a bit before deciding to be truly tourist and bought tickets for the Rome tour bus to take in the termini...

Aug 12, 2007 - Verona to Roma

Whilst on the train heading for Rome we met Jim and Lisa from San Diego, who boarded in Florence. We had a great chat with them and hope to keep in touch ......We arrived in Rome at 3:00 p.m. and the challenge of finding our hotel began. First we wandered around the train station Termini, trying to find the tourist info booth. Apparently it was hiding behind binario 24. After locating it we got directions to take the bus......those dreaded directions.......go back across the station (to where we already once were) and catch the number 86...

Jul 22, 2007 - We made it!!

Hi everyone!! The flight was fine a little shaky but OK. We arrived in Roma about 12:30 and did as the Romans do.. we took a siesta until about 9pm. After we went to the Spanish Steps for some dinner.. which was the usual pasta, pizza, and a pitcher of wine :). Today we slept in then went to the Trevi Fountain and then tried to go to the Vatican and Museum but they were closed because it's Sunday. Tomorrow we board the ship about 4pm. Hope all is well!
