Finally one of the highlights of Mama’s trip – Rome! We flew to Rome via Munich. This way we were able to combine two trips, one to Munich then to Rome. Travel time to Munich via car took 4.5 hours while the flight to Rome took 1.5 hours. We took an afternoon flight and arrived there at about 7 pm. From the airport we took Leonardo express , non stop train (30 minutes costs €14 one way) from the airport to Termini, the main train station.
First thing we had to do was look for our Pension – it was in a very quiet neighborhood but very central. This picture taken above was from that neighborhood. The room was very clean, with a good functioning aircon and for the price we got, we could not complain (€90/night with Italian breakfast;coffee of your choice and sweet rolls like choco croissant etc)
All of these plus 2 bottles of mineral water for €14.00 – wow! it was the best pizza ever!!! with thin aubergines, italian ham, cheese, those balls are Rome specialties with rice and cheese and some meat sauce. Yummy!
We decided to leave the crowd after spending a few minutes there.. Vlado and I can’t believe that there were just so many people here. We went to Rome 10 years ago or 11 actually in September and the fountain was empty! I have to look for those pictures to prove that.
