Welcome back to the capital city of Italy, Rome for more things to do! After visiting the famous ones like Pantheon, Colosseum and things in the center, it’s time to talk go somewhere slightly different! Let’s go!
- Spanish Steps
Tho it’s named Spanish Steps, its design has absolutely nothing to do with Spain nor its culture. It was actually designed by an Italian architects and funded by a French diplomat back in 1723, so it was only named such as it was close to the original Spanish Embassy at Piazza di Spagna.
*** However, one thing to bear in mind! The Roman government has decided to prohibit eating, drinking or even just sitting on the steps in order to protect the cultural heritage, so don’t forget to throw away or keep your food and drinks in your bag or you will be fined!
- Capuchin Crypt
So, let’s go in a small scale catacomb inside this Chapel. Photos in certain areas are prohibited, so let’s save the surprise and have a look at the teaser for now!
- Monument to Victor Emmanuel II
The Museum of Italian Reunification was also harbored in the base of this monument, as well as to go up to the monument’s terrace to enjoy the panoramic view of Rome!
- Piazza Navona
A public open space where you can find the Fountain of the Four Rivers and number of statues
Let’s not forget about the food!
- Osteria Barberini, quite a famous one in town well-known for their truffle!
- Taverna Romana
In fact, each Italian city has their own specialty pasta dish(es) so there are actually lots of good food around. And in Rome, you will fall in love with their Carbonara!
So, that was indeed a lovely trip in Rome. Hope you guys are also having some good time before your summer holiday and yes, see you all very soon in our next blog post, to Vatican, Capri and Napoli for some relaxation 😉
