...Ciao Italia - Day 2 - Roma

may be u've seen its replica somewhere...
d Vatican
...M'sia Airlines office agaknye
For today we decided just to get on a tour bus to get around Roma. Among others we managed to visit Colosseo or more known as Colosseum...with some gladiators hanging around, d Tomb of Unknown Soldiers, d Vatican, n a few shopping streets near Piazza del Popolo. N BTW, halal food is not a problem as there r a number of food outlets operated by our Bangladeshi n kebab r available aplenty. FYI, I looked up for these halal outlets @ d website of it out....

...d was really huge for a structure during its time

foto op next to Colosseo

souvenir shops can be found in every corner of Roma...d same can said about d tourists as really is a touristy city

only here can you see more Maseratis competing for attention along with Bimmer n Merc... to Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II which housed d Tomb of Unknown Soldiers

...of course that 'Prancing Horse' insignia is familiar...d Ferrari's horse signature was taken from this...

on d way to d Vatican...crossing Fiume Tevere (Tiber River)...with Castel Sant' Angelo in d background

...n d Vatican even has its own post office...n lots of tourists sent postcards from here

d Papal Swiss Guard in their traditional uniform...they r d one deals with d security of d place

fake goods can be found here not only in Petaling Street or pasar malam back home. This is just outside d Vatican

n onwards we go...stop jap @ Piazza del area

neat haaa....bikes for rent...but we didn't try it out...

then back to our base near d Termini...for solat n lunch.

n later back out Sayang buying few Italian scarfs...but tengok2 few shops down d price is cheaper...biasa la tuhh...hihi

near d Vatican again...this couple just tied d knot @ one of d churches in d Vatican n then posing in our bus for their official just nyelit je

dining al fresco is d order of d day of course

...interesting to see that some of the construction sites covered their site with a nicely done cover full of graphics...unlike d usual green netting back home. Sometimes u assume that it is an actual building if seen from afar.

dah senja n dah penat...time to rehat pulak...back to d Termini...this is d front entrance...

...n d interior...this is during off peak period...kalau tak...memang hiruk n pikuk
