"We can go to Italy and maybe see the Coliseum"
I spent two nights in Rome at Hostel Vacanza. It was ran by an Asian woman who also owned a restaurant four blocks away. Cost per night was 23€ and it was a comfortable stay. The only issue was that check in/out, breakfast, and free wifi was all at the restaurant. It wasn't really that …
... reached up. Painting in this position for 18 hours a day for 5 years to complete his work. The process was said to be excruciatingly painful and at the end of this he was no longer able to fully flex his neck.
It was in this fashion he completed amazing works like the Creation of Man and the last judgement. Both forever on the roof of the Sistine chapel for all to admire. Michelangelo in fact hated what he was made to do and in spite he painted a message to ...
Started with the day with a bit of house keeping, finally found a laundromat to do some much needed washing. Left the washing with a very efficient laundry crew and headed off to the Basilica di San Pietro (saint peters square). This basilica is amazing words can not describe this place, you have to se to believe it.
The line to go in went around the whole square, we tagged along behind a Nonno and Nonna who jumped the que. If it was good enough for them, it ...
... to see the first olive plantations. Then they are everywhere, some of them on really steep ground. Lots of small holdings with a few olive trees and brown houses. As we come out of the Appinines we are on another flood plain. Heaps more vinyards and olive groves and also tabacco is grown here for the state run tabacco company. I am never going to forget endless fields of sunflowers waving in the breeze, although slightly past their best they were still gorgeous. The wine they ...
... back to Rome. The the Spanish steps and the boat fountain,
followed by an Egyptian monument, the Agrippa monument, another
fountain then we headed to the pantheon.
We had a bit of time to see this. First up I
went inside, it was a great experience to be inside something nearly
2000 years old, I took some pictures of the inside then walked around
the circle. I then exited and got some souvenirs at a nearby stand.
Next up was a gelato, which was great, ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
It says hotel, but this is a hostel at hostel prices. The lady that owns it is Asian and very nice. She owns a restaurant too, so you check in at the restaurant that is 2-3 blocks away from the actual hostel. The walking wasn't too big of a deal, but Wi-Fi was only at the restaurant. Breakfast was good. Great location from train station.
