Time vs Humanity
Be very interested in history to appreciate the concept of time & humanity.
Colosseum was built in early years of Vespasian's reign (anyone has any idea of when this is? lol... I can't even keep track of U.S. presidents in the last 200 years!). Inaugurated in AD 80... now, you grasp the extent of this? We are talking about 1920 years ago!!! Getting a feel of gladiators?! They were here!!!
Contests known as 'MUNERA' took place in the form of duel between opposing sides & usually until the death of one or the other! At least 10,000 such contests were recorded! Some kind of entertainment :-(((
La passione per il calcio!
the first thing you have to do when you are in italy is to reserve your ticket to one of the soccer game that are held each saturday and sunday, on my first day in rome i searched for like an hour for the AS roma store in order to get tickets to the Roma vs. Inter game at the stadio olimpico, one of the biggest stadiums in italy. YOU NEED TICKETS!! tickets for matches between Roma and other teams are often sold at some of the official AS Roma stores in rome (not all of them sell tickets, you have to check their website www.asroma.it ), on my first day in rome i went for the search for tickets for the game between Rome and Inter, i was told that the tickets were sold at the As Roma store in piazza colonna in via del corso (a very famous street in rome) , in order to get to the stadio olimpico from termini station you have to take bus number 910 get off at the final stop piazza mancini, then you'll see it on ur left, cross the bridge and thats it. the stadium area is really nice especially in the evening, if you are on a tight budget get tickets for curva nord, the cheapest section in the stadium but be careful of angry crowds, if you can afford to pay more buy tickets for the distinti section which was filled with tourists the time when i was there it was much safer than the curva nord, the ticket cost 25 euros
You've never been to a place like this
Going to this place made me feel like I was a hippie... We went here not knowing what to expect and it was amazing. A huge gathering place that was comprised of what seemed like an abandoned museum or something then out back there was a huge concert tent and there was a reggae concert going on.. Crazy Anything you are comfortable in.. I wouldn't bother wearing heels.. I don't remember there being a clean floor anywhere
If you are on a tight budget, and your italian is not so good, the self service cafeteria on Termini station is great. All the food is fresh cooked on the premises, and you can help yourself. The restaurant itself is built into some Roman excavations, which makes it an interesting environment. I have never had a bad meal there, and the fresh fruit salads are especially nice!!.
I think the biggest...
I think the biggest concentration of good quality restaurants in Rome are found in the Trastevere area. Most interesting to go at night. I think the name of the restaurant that I went to was named Casa d'oro, or something like that. If I ever go back to Italy, I will definitely be returning there! Buono (delicious)! Check me pigging out in the photo. Dining solo, but eating enough for 3! That night I ate a bowl of mussels, a basket of bread, a mixed salad, and after spying a fabulous scampi pasta on the table next to me, I could not resist and ordered one too. Oh yes and I polished it off with a bottle of Lambrusco. My oh my!!! Ah well I was on holidays!!
