Rome

fountains, fountains and more fountains

sunny 29 °C

We have just finished 2 more full on days exploring Roma. I wasn't that keen on Rome the first time on our bus trip 15 years ago bu t thought it was a place the girls needed to see. With 3 days to explore instead of 1 Rome has been a pleasant surprise. The fountains in every piazza are just amazing and refreshing in the near 30 degree heat. Yesterday we headed out to see the colosseum, got a little lost on the bus and finally arrived at lunch. after queing for nearly 1 hour we were in, the views didn't disappoint, and this time round we took the time to explore.IMG_1117.jpg1IMG_1104.jpgIMG_1106.jpg
We then headed off to find the mouth of truth, legend has it if you put your hand in and you lie your hand will be biten off, luckily we left with all hands attached but Michael refused to have a go.4IMG_1122.jpg8IMG_1123.jpg3IMG_1124.jpg
Today we visited the Vatican Museum and Sistene Chappel, Briana was a little un inspired but Kenzie enjoyed looking at the statues and frescoes, as we left Kenzie said "well that was fun". Briana didnt enjoy having to wear tights inside (for religeous reasons) on such a hot day.

Next stop Piazza Di Spagna and the spanish steps, more fountains for the girls to cool down in. After lunch we walked up the steps to the Villa Borghese a huge park, where we hired a 4 person bike to make our way around the park, great fun.IMG_1178.jpgIMG_1177.jpgIMG_1204.jpgIMG_1182.jpgIMG_1209.jpgIMG_1218.jpgIMG_1207.jpg
