European Summers : Rome


Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

Sanjeev and I are travelling doing the Epic European Summer Holiday this year. πŸ™‚ Our first stop is Italy. Ours was a 11 hour flight but an amazing one. We are staying at a super cute hotel called The Inn at the Roman Forum. It almost looks like we are staying at a little Roman Cathedral. πŸ™‚ For breakfast they have a little terrace garden, and a cozy drawing room. It’s kinda small but so cute and cozy. Surprisingly while searching for a hotel in rome, both Sanjeev and I separately zeroed down on this one. We are so happy with our decision. The staff is so cordial and helpful. It’s also amazingly located. Everything is at the walking distance.

Sanjeev and I woke up early morning yesterday to capture the beauty of the Rome. We walked long, spent time together and just saw the amazing architecture Rome has to offer.

Later we went to see the Vatican City , Sistine Chapel and the St Peter’s Church Bascilica. The Sistine Chapel holds stories on moses and christ painted by the greatest painters of that time. There are mind blowing creations by Michaelangelo. And there are many be hundreds and thousands of art and architecture gathered in the Vatican. You would just be left amazed seeing one creation after the other.

St peter’s Basilica is located near to the Vatican. We were fortunate enough to reach the church during the mass time. The whole experience was so beautiful. We got the blessing of the Pope. After the mass you stand in a que and the Pope puts a thin wafer kind of a thing in your mouth. The church is the largest in the world and it is crazy HUGE. Again the art and architecture would leave you spell bound. Btw if you plan to go there, don’t wear shorts and sleeveless tops. Your legs and shoulders should be covered as a respect towards the church.

Oh! be very careful of your bags and belongings. Rome is quite infamous for pickpockets. πŸ˜›

I hope you enjoy the pics. :)) Will share more soon. Mwwaahh!!

    Awesome pics Sanjeev. You bring Rome alive. Please share what lens you use to get these wide wide images! Thank you. And if you are there a bit longer… do visit the Piazzas in the evening and the Accademia museum to meet Michaelangelo’s David. πŸ™‚ Rome is my absolutely favourite city .. the architecture, the food and the wine.. is so mesmerizing. Went there a couple of times, and walked almost every part of it. I hope you get to do Tuscany and Venice too. I am sure it will stay in your memory for ever. Enjoy every moment.
