World Travel – Italy 2004 – Part XI

Next stop is Verona, Italy. Like all places we visit in Italy you see ruins of the Roman times but this city is also famous for something else. This is the city of Romeo and Juliet where we visit the actual place the story is told about; nothing like the movies of Hollywood but a simple place that many today travel in search of love by leaving notes of one sort or another. I have never seen so many sticky notes in one place before…

World Travel – Italy 2004 – Part VI

We head to another area of Rome for the night, know as the Spanish Steps, eating a wonderful meal at a small family owned restaurant, and then DISCO our way back to the hotel. Yes, I said the “D” word and our Aussie Mates we were traveling with were dancing in the isle of the bus while our driver flickered the dome lights on and off.

Do the hustle!!!!!!!

World Travel – Italy 2004 – Part V

When you think of Rome I’m sure most think of some very specific places and yes we did spend time visiting these places. Did you know that in the Roman Colosseum that staged “Navel” Battles? Yes, I mean they filled the Colosseum with water, put two of more ships inside and staged a fight. They also were able to cover the Colosseum just like they do today in modern football stadiums; and it was the Navy crews that did the work as well. Who would have thought!

World Travel – Italy 2004 – Part IIIc

We push deeper into Ancient Ostia. One can just imagine putting on a toga and stepping back into time living the life of an upper class Roman or a slave working in the milling making flour for the bakery.

This site just keeps going; because their entire city is still here to explore. In this section we see parts of the forum, Theater, one of the main Temples, the “Laundry” (where they used yearn as a bleach), one of the major homes, and the huge Bath.
