After Coderdojo in Milan, I’d like to remain in Italy. Today I want to tell you about one of my short holiday in Rome.
Rome by bike
In the morning we went to see the Vatican Museum with a nun who explained us the relationship between art and faith in a very interesting way. Of course, we only saw one of the museums, a small part, but the visit was at the top.
We first went to a place with the support of video and pictures we were shown a lot of curiosity about the Sistine Chapel.
After learning many interesting details, we finally stepped inside. It ‘was really a unique experience. The frescos are spectacular, inside you can not talk and unfortunately you can stop just short.
A little because there really is to do a lot of stuff, a little’ because they are truly endless tourists who want to enter. A lot of people from all over the world who come to admire this masterpiece.
In St. Peter’s Basilica we admired the Pietà by Michelangelo and the whole cathedral. Inside there are a lot of statues and frescoes, each with its own story. A year would not be enough here to know everything. The dome then you should know that it is really high.
For lunch we ate at Duecento Gradi a place that I recommend to you really, just near. They make a lot of really yummy sandwiches.
In the afternoon we rented bikes and went for a ride to the Villa Borghese. Given the hot it me and my cousin we had the possibility to bathe in the fountains and splash with water.
We cycled a lot in the afternoon around Rome and my cousin … look at that photo he want to do!
Square of Spain from above and from below. By bike it really takes a little to move.
Here the whole group in front of Castel Sant’Angelo in Trastevere a really nice neighborhood that I liked, full of bars and restaurants.
Finally we arrived at our apartment. It was very late. We were wrong road and ended up cycling on the Janiculum. A huge effort! If you decide to go around Rome by bike … double check the maps!
It was a day full of excitement and fun. My cousin and I were always the first and we laughed so much for the last. Rome is really a beautiful city!
