I want this car!
Do you see the long queue? Almost the way around..
Last dinner, waiting for my pasta with salmon. Yummy!
We started day 4 early as usual, with breakfast right outside our hotel. Then we walked about 5km to the Vatican, and luckily the queue wasn’t so long, so after 10min we were in at St. Pietro church. It’s so huge that i don’t have words to describe. So many beautiful details, paintings and sculptures! As you can see, we went all the way up to the dome, which was like a morning exercise because you have to walk up and down all those narrow stairs (about 600 steps maybe, one way).
Then we ended up at the Vatican Museum, at Sistine Chapel with all those paintings by Michelangelo. To bad, it was forbidden to take pictures in the Sistine Chapel. All the guards where yelling at you in the speaker as soon they saw someone taking pictures or video.
I really felt in love with Rome. I wish i had more time there, because 4 days are way too short even if we were walking like crazy everyday. I feel like we haven’t seen everything yet.. But one day i will return to Rome or another part of Italy. And that day i will take comfortable shoes with me, haha.
And the journey ends here.
The first thing we did at day 3 was to go to the Colosseo early, because it was opened at 8.30 am. We knew that it would be many people later, so we were at the entrance before 8am and waited in the line. The Colosseo was so interesting, it’s more than 2000 years old! How cool? And how could people construct it back then? Genius!
Anyway, we were there almost 3 hours and walked up and down and took a lot of photos. If you buy ticket to Colosseo you will also get entrance to Palatino and Forum Romano.
There are so many things to see here in Rome. If you haven’t been here before you need to take comfortable shoes with you. Me and Joakim have been walking A LOT! My sandals are like broken in half now.. and my feet feels like they are broken in half too..
Rome day 2 started with an early breakfast nearby. After that, we went forward to Fontana di Trevi, which was sadly under maintenance in the morning because they where hovering up all the coins, so we headed to the Spanish Steps instead (as you can see on the first pictures). We went there before 9am because we knew that it will be many people around there if we would come later. After that we walked around and came back to Fontana di Trevi again, and met a lot of people around the fountain.
Then we just walked and walked for hours. We came up on a hill with gorgeous view. Later that night we went back to Fontana di Trevi again just to see it during night time. Still, there were a lot of people! So crazy!
Tired on the train
Our hotel room, we are staying at Hotel Romano. A little hotel with only 16 rooms, but the location is amazing!
Inside Santa Maria in Trastevere
It wasn’t so good as it looks like, haha..
Trying to look like Caesar
Yes! We arrived here to Rome yesterday at noon. We spent almost the whole day walking through the streets. It’s so hot and sunny here, so i was forced to buy a hat. But it’s so funny too because almost all the tourists are wearing panama hats. We have to melt in, haha!
If you are an ice-cream lover, Rome is good for you! Ice cream bar everywhere! I have so much to write but i’m too lazy for that now, because we have to move on and see more thing around here!
Yeey! Finally, here is the first photoshoot that i did as a blondie! I really love these! See it on The Ones2Watch!
The hat is made by porcelain, so it was pretty heavy on my head, and i couldn’t move my head so much either while i was posing in front of the camera. The stylist’s assistant was always ready with his hands, in case i would drop it to the floor..haha!
