...Ciao Italia - Day 4 - Roma n Prato

there it is...Stadio Olimpico
d statues...depicting various sports
later...near SM Maggiore...AS Roma store
Today is our last day in Roma b4 heading to Prato in d afternoon for our conference. Prior to checking out, we managed to visit Stadio Olimpico, home for d Azzuri as well as AS Roma n SS Lazio (this is very wise...less wastage). Lots n lots of statues there...naked ones most of them. Afterwards we ceq out n ronda2 d area south of our hotel b4 boarding d Eurostar to Firenze (or known more as Florence in English) n onwards to Prato.


To go to Stadio Olimpico, we got onto d tram...non-air-cond this one...so..during d summer panas gak la...especially when stationary (n peak hours)


d Stadio...n d various statues


foto op depan Italian Olympic Office...preparing for Beijing 2008 la ni...


then onto d tram back to d hotel...d nun n not so nun


ceq out time...BTW...d name of our hotel was Hotel Milo...tu sebab sihat dan kuat. One interesting fact about hotels in Roma is that a number of hotels can be found occupying any particular old but refurbished building...so it is like a recycling exercise laa...to reuse d old buildings to cater to d high number of tourists. So, u may find d lobby of one hotel on level 2, the next hotel on level 4 n so on. Creative tuuhh...


b4 getting on d train, we ronda area Santa Maria Maggiore jap...souvenir hunting n whats not


this is d train that'll take us to Firenze...


on d way...Tuscany countryside


Slowing down @ Firenze Rifredi...dah dekat dgn Firenze SMN dah


then we got on another train...a regional one...to Prato. Here it is...Prato...a little town...with a Monash Univ centre within it...d venue for our conference. It is interesting to note that it has a sizeable population of people from mainland China...go figure...
