Let’s go to Rome

Wednesday, 15.06.2016

So the morning was a little bit different to the others as I thought to myself # just check again the road recommended by bikemap.net.
And I did well to do so as they would send me again more than twice to the very busy SS1.
So I said to myself – let’s go to Civitavechia which was about 13 km and take the train as there were no alternatives.

So I arrived in Roma Termini by train in 1 1/2 h and was happy to be able to get my room.

The view from my room - but party till 1 pm...

I went through this huge city to meet my german friends from Munich who recommended my the ‘Illuminates Tour’ visiting the interesting places of the book and film which you’ve seen perhaps already.

We began our tour at the obelisk at the Piazza del Popolo and crossed the whole city by foot and black taxi – haven’t had this before!

Than we entered the Vaticano and had some explanations about the difference between the film and the real place. Here you can find 12 angels and in the film there is just one showing the policeman where to go on with his search of the murder.

We’ve also seen some of the guards of the Swiss Army and on friday I’d like to enter the german cemetery.

Finally we went to the Castel Sant’Angelo where you’ve got many tales and a perfect view over the river Tiber.
Afterwards we went out to eat and found a cool place where Daniel got a huge salad of fish…

So this was the first day of Rome at a sunny day enjoying so many places with a great tourguide.
