You know it's been a long day, when I start with a picture of the rising sun....
Our hotel room goes out directly to a big terrace from where you can go up to the roof.
What more convenient way to see the sun rise over Rome?
This meant that we got up before 7 AM and had an entire day's time to explore the city.
And the best way to do it is by walking, it lets you see the little things that make a place special.
As we had already noticed, there are few big cars in Rome. In fact, I think I have never seen so many Smart cars as here!
3 in one picture and a small Fiat:
Byron greeting us at the entrance - he was a big fan of Italy.
This park has so many pretty corners.
And a bunch of fountains of course.
Here's a short video: https://instagram.com/p/8Eb7poEpKd/
Olivier doing his best.
The Trevi fountain is currently being renovated. Oh well, next time...
Decorations in every little corner
And on the floor
Let's build a little decorative something on the hill...
Altar of the Fatherland - also called the Vittorianio, typewriter or wedding cake
You can go inside and walk up to the terrace - of course we did!
Here we are!
And guess what - it was sunset time!
Traffic on the Piazza Venezia below
Moon over the Colosseum
Churches look different at night without the light coming through the windows, but still beautiful.
Coming out of the main entrance
Yes, I've been shopping!
We ended the evening in the nearby park's restaurant.
