Rome know for its history and past. Famous for its Heritage. Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum are amongst the world’s most visited tourist destinations. Contribution of artist and architects like Bramante, Bernini and Raphael to Renaissance and Baroque architecture made Rome more appealing.
Well its me and my family who planned to visit Rome in November. Angelina and Shakira my two kids were too curious for our trip and planned lot for things for themself. When we left home we were all ready with our digital camera and handycam with our laptop so that we can upload our pics and tour details while travelling. Our all booking was done and our stay was in Rome Cavalieri Hotel.
On our day 1st we went to The Colosseum and then for Vatican Museums. It was amazing experience to see such ancient places. Although Angelina and Shakira were not enjoying those places as they are adventurous girls and not much interested in architecture and history. They were just waiting for some adventures fun.
Next day we decided to start our day with Roman public bath. Men and women enjoyed coming to the baths not only to get themselves clean but also to meet with friends and family and to exercise. We first go to the unctuarium where we had oil perfume massage onto our skin and then exercise in one of the exercise yards. Next, we went to the caldarium, similar to a Turkish bath, hot and steamy. Here we sat and perspired, scraping our skin with a strigil, a curved metal tool. Attendants served us snacks and drinks. Finally came a dip in the calidarium (hot bath) and a quick dip in the frigidarium (cold bath). This is what Angelina and Shakira enjoyed a lot. At evening we planned for The Circus Maximus which made Angelina and Shakira’s day more entertaining.
Our tour operator insisted a lot to visit Catacombs but my wife denied it that she is not interested in seeing anything related to deads. We planned for shopping that day and went to Pantheon and Via Del Governo Vecchio, Piazza Colonna and Piazza Barberini, Piazza Di Spagna. We buyed gifts for friends and family. We also buyed some Cleopatra statue for my office colleague. We even buyed some computer games for Angelina’s friend. Same night we went to La Terrazza, in the Hotel Eden for dinner.
On my wife’s demand we decided to went to tube8 tattoo parlour where she get a Cleopatra tattoo on her butts. To enjoy a romantic evening with my wife i went to Sapori del Lord Byron, in the Hotel Lord Byron. Next morning we catch our flight back to home with fun filled memories of the Rome. Rome’s culture tradition fashion left long lasting memories in my mind and wish to visit it again with more time.
