Not an inkling to where I was going, except that I was in a plane heading for Frankfurt!! Is this where we are going I kept asking? Wait and see was their reply!
In Frankfurst airport I was given two presents to unwrap. First opened was a guide book on Rome and the other a map. What a wonderful surprise. I was so thrilled I burst into tears :-)
Apparently my husband couldnt get a direct flight and so we flew via Frankfurt
St. Peters Basilica, The Sistine Chapel, The Trevi Fountain (throw your coins in), The Spanish Steps, The Via Condotti (where all the expensive shops are - much too expensive for me!!!!) The Coloseum, St. John Laterun. The list is endless.
Erected in the piazza are also large screens to enable everyone to be able to see better. He looked so frail though. Since I wrote this Pope John Paul has died, so I am pleased that I did see him on our visit.
- Pros:A good metro/bus system
- Cons:Sore feet!!!!!
- In a nutshell:Not just old relics!!
The Circus Maximus (Circo Massimo) lies between the Palatine and Aventine Hills in a valley once known as the Vallis... more travel advice
The construction of the colosseum was started by Vespasian in 72AD in private grounds that apparently belonged to Nero.... more travel advice
