Rome isn’t exactly new to me since I had already gone in 2006. The city’s atmosphere has everything to please me : monuments, museums, food and small alleys. After Venice last spring, Rome. For my return in the italian capital, I wanted to make the most of all that could be visited outdoors, so as not to waste any of the sunrays at disposal. Even if the Coliseum is the tourist legal minimum in Rome as the Eiffel tower can be in Paris, I still wanted to go see it again.
Because it’s always fascinating to contemplate this witness from the past, and the magic works every time. For the tourist outfit, I packed my suitcase with relatively simple things: especially comfortable shoes! (forget heels immediatly! … except should you want to pose as a muse in front of the Forum’s columns). This Rome outing by the way was worth all the stepper sessions in the world…but any promising results were immediatly balanced off by the avalanche of mozzarella, pasta, panna cotta and creamy “gelati” that passed me by. Yups, we’ll talk about that soon. (English translation Bleu Marine)
