Roaming in Rome ***Italy***

 

Oh, Rome***

Oh, Rome***

 

 

 

 

All Roads Lead to Rome…

 

 

 

After working for a while as a waitress in Genova I ended up breaking my toe ( on the beach ) … I could not work for a couple of weeks…. So I decided to go to Rome for the first time ever ! I packed my bags and took the first train very early in the morning….

Camping Roma

I arrived in Rome and heard there was this really cool camping place around 20 minutes from Rome… I started asking the locals how I can get to ‘Camping Roma’  I needed to take a bus… So I found the bus and with my big suitcase arrived right infront ‘Camping Roma’ . I was waiting in-line to check-in (for a tent) when I had met these 3 girls from Ireland… We started talking and beause I spoke Italian we decided to explore around Rome together….(In Italy very few people speak English…)

Seeing it was a camp I was going to stay in a tent… The tent had no electricity but had a  zip to open and close it with a small lock..Inside the tent there were 2 tiny beds…Luckily though I had no tent-mates..(room-mates but in a tent)

It was around 40 degrees and the tent was in the sun… The best thing about that camping place was it had 2 pools and a bar!

The Vatican

We explored all around Rome.  Starting with the Vatican ( put on church clothes or they won’t let you in! ) I wasn’t allowed in the Vatican twice because of ‘ revealing clothing” I was wearing a vest and jeans (plus it was  like 40 degrees in the shade) and after staying 2 hours in a long queue  they refused my entry !!! But, the third time I covered up and got in, finally ! =)))

The Fountain of Trevi 

Definitley a must-see ! Just be careful of the Bangladeshi  guys around there selling roses…Don’t take any roses even if they give them to you because if you don’t pay they will whack you with the whole bouquet !!!

The Roman Ruins

We went all around the city centre and to see the ruins which was quite a long walk but totally worth it!

The rest of the time we were tanning by the pool! We also went to a water park just outside Rome . It was really hot when I was there(40 degrees)  so the time spent eating Italian Ice-cream by the pool was my favourite!!!!

 

The guys with the roses...getting ready to wack me...Dont accept roses from strangers...;)))
