Tour of Rome!

Yesterday my humans went and did a tour of Rome. They showed mum’s dad and brother around because they’ve never been to the city before. It’s a beautiful place and I thought you might like to see some of the photos!

They took the train into Rome, because from where we live on the boat in Ostia it’s only €1.50! It’s such great value and you don’t have the stress of the Roman traffic! The first place on their tour was, of course, the Colosseum. They were in awe of it, it’s really very impressive.

Next they enjoyed looking at all the ruins and imagining what Rome was like at the height of the Roman Empire. Shortly followed by visiting the beautiful Trevi Fountain.

The legend says you should throw a coin into the fountain to ensure you come back to Rome. So once everyone had thrown a coin the humans walked on to see the Pantheon.

The Pantheon was built as a temple to all The gods of Ancient Rome and is one of the best preserved monuments in Rome.

After all the excitement of the day the humans grabbed a couple of drinks and went for a lovely Italian dinner of pizza and pasta.

  5. Oh Bailey…..seeing the photos reminded my pawrents of how much they enjoyed Rome when they visited many years ago. It looks like they made sure your grandpa and uncle saw all the stuff visitors love to see! So you had a pawty while your Mum was away? Hopefully you didn’t make TOO much of a mess so your Mum doesn’t know what you’ve been up to! 😉

  7. Are you sure they had pizza and pasta? There is no evidence of food on that table. Drinks look good.
