Are you ready to join me discover new ‘old’ places of Rome?
It’s a big city and I need some assistance. Starting off:
This little road, if I remember correctly, is another passage way to the Spanish steps.
Shades of orange on this road leading to who knows where.
Across the Trevi Fountain is another street…full of foreigners.
A highway somewhere in Rome
I have no idea of the names of these ruins. I’m sure these were not particularly covered in my History class.
Bell Towers and Columns
I have a feeling that this was not actually a tourist spot.
Fact check: almost all European countries have columns for religious purpose most of the time.
I can only guess that these structures belongs to the government.
And are NOT a tourist attraction.
This square was a surprising delight for me.
Firstly, the fountain caught my attention.
A beautiful piece, we were actually tired from all the walking and this fountain provided us a venue to rest.
Surrounded with such beauty.
And before I forget, this place boasts the area of natural artists!
Coz it's back to work for me, no more sidetrips…yet! Here's to strolling down the memory lane, 3 years ago. By the way, we have the final product plastered on our fridge. Embarrassing, I know. >.< Does this place still look the same? #rememberwhen #throwback #timelesstuesday #takemebacktuesday #reminisce #vacation #roma #2012 #caricature #drawing #sketching #pencil #portrait #adventure #europe #eurotrip #souvenir #touristspot #beautifuldestinations #Italy
Until this day, my caricature is plastered on our fridge.
Welcome to another world
Lastly, this ancient scene is what I loved the most. I feel like I’m in Rome a few A.D.s back. I felt so out of place wearing my modern clothes. The trees are perfect, the orange colored buildings held a charm of antiquity and…it’s just the whole aura.
If you’re ever in Rome, don’t just be somewhere that are pretty much a common tourist-y places. Explore other sites, and you might just find yourself transported back in time.
