IMG_9716

Long long ago I had been to Rome, the capital of Italy and I explored Rome also called as Roma to my fullest extent. Since then I was trying to share the memories I had with Rome, ancient city from Roman times. It was fascinating to see some of the old roman structures standing to this date surviving many wars, weathers. Considering myself as learner and fan of history I was happy to be in this ancient city and witness the following architecture and monuments of ancient Rome.

Thanks to Roma pass, my friends and I had pretty easy access to visit these amazing places in our three day stay at Roma. On the first day we tried to explore as many places as possible and the result is here.

Eurotrip – Florence, Italy

2

Florence, also called as Firenze is one of main cities of Italy and home to some of amazing art works of renaissance period, is also my favorite city in Italy. Florence was second stop during our trip to Italy after Pisa. From Michelangelo’s masterpiece, David to panoramic view of the city from Piazzale Michelangelo along with Italian cuisines, everything was perfect and I enjoyed every moment I stayed in Florence.

We reached Florence in the evening and by the time settled in our rooms it was already dark. We thought of exploring the city and its night life. We started our journey visiting Galleria dell’Accademia where we came across famous Michelangelo’s masterpiece David and many other art works. Being someone who is fan of history, I heard about David and saw his picture for the first time in history book during my school time. And the moment I stood next to the actual sculpture, it made me realize how far I have come in time and space. The look on David’s face and his famous warning glare which said “you talking to me?” and veins on his right were some of the amazing details of the sculpture that caught my attention. Further exploration of the galleria led me to some other amazing art works and my favorites are here.

Later that evening we had dinner in a restaurant whose name I forgot but not the taste of pasta and lasagna. Then we got the opportunity of enjoying the chocolate syrup and waffles en route to our hostel rooms during last hours on the last day of the stalls. Then, met our friends from Toulouse at Ponte Vecchio.

Next morning with a city map in our hands provided by our hostel receptionist, we went to Piazzale Michelangelo. There we met our friends from Toulouse.

Then we all went to visit Giordino Bardini, Palazzo Pitti, another house of many roman arts and culture where we spent most of the day.

Later we headed towards cathedral by which it was dark already but still had lot of time to spend. Enjoyed the street music, some more foods and finally left Florence with awesome dinner at Salaam Bombay and the beauty of renaissance arts.

Eurotrip – Pisa, Italy

Last exam of the year finished just days ago, and finally it’s holidays. This time I have no plans of going on trips instead I am thinking of completing certain some things. First and foremost, to complete Naruto series which by now is done(almost). Then to read couple of books, watch movies and some more TV shows and if possible learn a programming software. And so, I have started this Christmas holidays.

I don’t know where I came across, once I read a new year resolution which said to travel to a place to which you have never been. I liked this thought and I made this as my new resolution too, some years ago. And I have been cherishing up this resolution by traveling to new places. The year 2016 was adventurous as I traveled to some really amazing places whose list started from Pisa of Italy. Here are some pics from my trip to Pisa.

No trip(considering if you are into taking pics) to Pisa is complete without people trying to lean against leaning tower or trying it to save from further leaning. Here is the pic, my friends trying to prevent the tower from leaning!
