05 Jul A Visit To Rome
Rome is one of the best places (I) ever visited (personally). The place is simply an open air museum. Rome is bursting with great architecture and ancient art. There are a lot of things in Rome that you can’t just pick out from a Walmartone com store. But you can definitely get access to great places by simply buying tickets online.
First day, we took a metro and headed to the Colosseum. From the metro, we are greeted with the great basement of the Rome Colosseum. Good thing tickets were bought online and it made it easier for our group to gain access to the entrance.
Rome’s Amazing Italian Food and Attractions To See
The Colosseum, at one point, can hold up to eighty thousand spectators. It had been the site of celebrations, men battle as in the gladiators, to the point of bloodshed. The Colosseum is perhaps the largest ever built during the Roman Empire.
I am glad to have visited the colosseum. Although it is no longer used to its purpose, the colosseum is gaining income via visitors who would like to get a feel of the famous ampitheatre in Roman history.
The Roman Forum
Located just across the Plaza from the Colosseum is the forum. It was the center of ancient Rome. Many of the important buildings and temples are located here. It is in this area that Rome thrive.
The Palatine Hill
A short walk from the central forum area is the Palatine Hill. From the top of the hill, you can get a good view of the imperial palace, the forum, and the circus maximus, a giant race track for chariotts. It can accommodate up to 150,000 people.
Piazza di Spagna
Piazza di Spagna, another famous plaza in Rome. The place is great to walk around, visit food stops and local restaurants. The famous Spanish steps is located here too.
Food In Rome
Breakfast was great, a plateful of protein, eggs, bacon, salami, some potatoes, and just a piece of everything in one plate.
Lunch, we had a taste of everything we can afford. The Antipasta (not sure how it spells out), it’s a plate full of vegetables, buttered and deep fried with a small basket of bread. The main dish, Trippa Alla Romana is a plateful of saucy tripe and Amatriciana, plateful of pasta in tomatoe base sauce.
Gelato, cones of ice cream served one on top the other. Ice cream was great, really milky and refreshing.
We had a taste of various pasta dishes too like the Cacio e Pepe and Carbonara. All the dishes taste really good. You will love to have a taste of them all if budget permits.
