Vaticano

A grey, rainy day in December, we found ourselves roaming Rome. Multiple umbrellas later (p.s do not buy the umbrellas from the guys on the streets; they break within minutes!!!) Jason and I arrived at the Vatican museum. There infront of you stands the Vatican and St.Peters Basilica. An amazing sight to be seen whether…

European Food Picks

1. When in Rome, eat at Etabli.  Found inside a 15th century building, this antique looking place seats more than you envision.  A few steps from Piazza Navona, you have the choice of hot beverages, food, wine or even cocktails; just depending on what time you’re there.  The bar lounge is open from 6pm-2am but the…

Known back in the day for the gladiator games and animal fights, I’m so happy that this faded out. Two thirds of this monument fell to neglect…
