We went to Rome and Pisa for our honeymoon-1 and a month later we did another honeymoon to Paris. I thought of posting pictures from both the trips in a single post, but there were too many pictures and it concked up my pathetic internet connection! So I split them into two posts.
Given a chance to go back, I would instantly want to go back to Rome. It was so beautiful, it felt like I had gone into a different time period. One thing I did not particularly enjoy though is the heat. It was EXTREME. Avoid June and July at any cost, it was too hot and walking through the ruins of the Roman forum was excruciating.
I could write an entire essay just about the colosseum, but to save your ears I thought I will post pictures and give one liners about each!
|Inside Colisseum - Can't believe there is so much still standing after 2000 years!!!|
|Vatican visible in the distance|
|Trevi fountain - So Roman-esque!!! I was so eager to visit this fountain. I had just read Angels and Demons and I think there is a mention of this fountain in the book. There is something so mysteriously beautiful about it, don't you think???|
|First glimpse of Pisa.|
|Leaning tower of Pisa|
|Tivoli Beach - We had some time to kill at Pisa and thought we'd visit a nearby beach. It ended up being a nude beach and we were so fully clad, we felt like intruders!|
|The Altar - The picture does not do justice to the monstrosity and the beauty of the altar. And that streak of sunlight, ugh so damn beautiful!|
|The dome above the altar.|
|Pantheon - Temple of all Gods.|
|All trains had graffiti on them. Dirty looking in my opinion!|
