Roma! I made it to Italia I arrived in Rome around 10pm, collected my lugagge and hopped on the bus to Termini. I finally got there around 10:40 and started the long walk to my hostel. It was asupposed to be a ten minute walk but the directions the hostel gave were crap and I ended up wandering for a bit. At 11:00 pm. In Rome. As a girl. Alone. With a backpack. Not fun. Anyways. I finally got there. Made my bed and crashed out. Or, at least that was the plan. One of my roomates decided he would rather keep me up with hos loud snoring. Normally snoring doesn't bother, but jesus he was loud! One of my other roomates and I ended up out in the common area laying on bean bags trying to get a few hours sleep.
In the morning I began the great wander.
Here's a statue built into the building on one of the streets Iwalked on the way to the Fontana di Trevi
View from the Piazza di Quirinale
Neat little street
Piazza dela Rotunda
On the way to the Piazza Navona
Dei Fori Imperian and the Roman Forums
I wandered for three days straight! Met a few people at the hostel who I wandered around with and made friends with some neat people!
I have to say Rome was neat for the sights, but other than that it wasn't to special. The people there were tired of tourists, so they didn't really care to help you out at all and were often times plain rude. It was a lot nicer at night. The lights hitting all of the building with the perfect mix between ancient and modern.
Next Stop: Naples, Italy
