Day #16 ‘Rome…part #1’
We decided to do as our guide book from Matt’s mum and dad suggested: we bought 4 ‘Daily Travel’ tickets for €4 each (no charge for Storm). So, for only €16 the five of us had unlimited travel on the trains, buses and trams (not that we saw any trams). Not too shabby! This gave us a chance to see so much more of Rome than we could have on foot or by bicycle. Thank you pink book!
During the day we saw: Piazza del Popolo; Colossea (Coliseum); Arco di Tito; Piazza delia Repubblica; Santa Maria Maggiore (church);Basillica Sanint Pietro (St. Peter’s in the Vatican); Vatican City.
At 4pm we finally stopped for lunch (time certainly does fly when you're Romeing...lol). We stopped at a traditional Italian Restaurant (will put in name later). Zane and Darian ate traditional Spaghetti while Matt and Kez had Pruichetto Pizza. Storm had a bit of each. Yes, even she was allowed inside and sat happily at our feet under the table. Zane and Daz enjoyed a fanta while Matt and Kerry had their first 'Italian' cappucino....YUMMM!!! The whole meal was A-M-A...zing!
What a day! Sore feet, aching legs, buzzing brains…and feeling of wonderment. Fabulous!!! One of the hilights would have to be seeing 'The Pieta' statue by Michaelangelo in St Peters' Basalisc, Vatican City. So beautiful!
