Just off the boat in Rome and I want to explore every nook and cranny, but I'm acting like a man on the run. The heat here is so intense that I have to cross the street every time the sun moves, just to stay in the shade. The temperature is in the the high 90's which makes full days of walking the streets searching for hidden treasures exhausting. I managed to put on an outfit that didn't completely stick to me and left the house on a new adventure! Read More
First stop was a caffe latte and then a walk to the Piramide di Caio Cestio. A structure built in 12 BC as a tomb for Caius Cestius, you can learn more here. They offer tours on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month, I am looking forward to sharing more on this beautiful structure!
Right next to the pyramid is the Non-Catholic Cemetery. A beautiful tucked away location that is the resting place for many note worthy people. Poets Shelley and Keats among other authors and artists. It is a peaceful place full of history and beauty.
After a long hot day of exploring it was time to sit down and enjoy a cool glass of wine. During the Summer white canopies pop up along the Tiber River, full of places to eat, shop and play. Grab a drink, some snacks and park yourself on a comfy river view sofa to people watch or make your way through the crowds of people to play foosball and carnival games.
Once the crowds of people became too overwhelming we grabbed a gelato and wandered the streets while they were slightly cooler and a touch less crowded. The Piazza Venezia is grand and I am looking forward to exploring it during the day!
