Located throughout the former Empire, enduring examples of Roman architecture serve to remind us of the wealth, power and influence that Rome spread throughout its domain. Much of the Romans’ architectural mastery is due to their use of concrete. Mixing a dry aggregate with a mortar that would take up water and then harden gave the Romans a range of building materials of great flexibility and strength. Roman concrete is very similar to modern Portland cement. Emperors cemented their reputations with grand public works. Roman architecture is responsible for the first large bridges that have lasted for centuries. Romans were the first to use concrete to build bridges. The largest surviving triumphal arch is the Arch of Constantine, completed in 315 AD to celebrate the Battle of Milvian Bridge. It is 21 metres high. Marble Arch in London was based on it. There’s so many historical architecture to see! I’d love to help you plan your trip to Rome so be sure to pick up the phone and call me or send me an email.

The Colosseum is an amphitheatre in the center of the city Rome, in Italy. It is also known as the Flavian Amphiteatre. It is the largest amphitheatre in the world and considered to be one of the greatest Roman architecture and engineering works. It was used for a variety of events and could hold 50,000 people. Earthquakes and stone robbers left it in ruins, but part of it still stands today. The Colosseum opens at 8:30am year round and the line begins forming around 8am. The Colosseum closes 1 hour before sunset and the times vary throughout the year. You can avoid waiting in line with a Roma Pass. If you chose to wait in line, tickets are €12 per person and under 18 years of age are free. Tickets are valid for 2 days, though you can only enter once. The ticket is good for entry to the Colosseum, the Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. There is free admission for all on the first Sunday of every month. Who wouldn’t want a free pass right? When you’re ready to go, we would love to help you plan your trip to Rome so be sure to pick up the phone and call us or send us an email.

Owl 🦉: 🎶 Good vibes in Roma.....

Rome, Italy

2   11  

È proprio vero che spesso l'apparenza inganna.
Ci sono persone che sembrano tanto dolci
e invece hanno il veleno
al posto del sangue.
Ci sono quelle che fanno le dure solo per proteggere il proprio cuore
troppo sensibile da un altra delusione.
Ci sono poi quelle persone
che le vedi sorridere sempre ,
in ogni circostanza ma dentro
hanno tanto di quel dolore
che nessuno potrebbe immaginare.
L'apparenza non è tutto!🎈

Piazza San Pietro - Vaticano, Roma, Italia

The scene of the Pieta shows the Virgin Mary holding the dead body of Christ after his crucifixion, death, and removal from the cross, but before he was placed in the tomb.  This is one of the key events from the life of the Virgin, known as the Seven Sorrows of Mary, which were the subject of Catholic devotional prayers.  The subject matter was one which would have probably been known by many people, but in the late fifteenth century it was depicted in artworks more commonly in France and Germany than in Italy.

This was a special work of art even in the Renaissance because at the time, multi-figured sculptures were rare.  These two figures are carved so as to appear in a unified composition which forms the shape of a pyramid, something that other Renaissance artists (e.g. Leonardo) also favored.

La escena de la Piedad muestra a la Virgen María sosteniendo el cadáver de Cristo después de su crucifixión, muerte y expulsión de la cruz, pero antes de ser colocado en la tumba. Este es uno de los eventos clave de la vida de la Virgen, conocidos como los Siete Dolores de María, que fueron el tema de las oraciones devocionales católicas. El tema fue probablemente conocido por muchas personas, pero a fines del siglo XV fue representado en obras de arte más comúnmente en Francia y Alemania que en Italia.

Esta fue una obra de arte especial, incluso en el Renacimiento, porque en ese momento, las esculturas de múltiples figuras eran raras. Estas dos figuras están talladas para aparecer en una composición unificada que tiene la forma de una pirámide, algo que otros artistas renacentistas (por ejemplo, Leonardo) también favorecieron.

While the Greeks made sculptures of idealized human forms, the Roman tended to make portraits. Romans made sculptures of gods, heroes, emperors, generals and politicians. They also used sculpted images to adorn the capitals of columns and the helmets of gladiators. Roman sculptures often reflected the fashions and lifestyles that were prevalent when they were made. Archaeologists can even date sculptures of Roman by their hairdos and clothing styles. During the Augustan Age, for example, women parted their hair in the middle with a central roll. The Flauvians and Antiones had more elaborate coiffures that resembled a honeycomb of curls. ["The Creators" by Daniel Boorstin] Sculpture were made spectacular-looking but hard to work stone such as porphyry from Gebel Dokhan in northeast Egypt, basanite granite from Gebel Fatireh in eastern Egypt, and blue, yellow, green, black and grey marble from elsewhere in the empire. If you need directions in finding these sculptures, I’d love to help you plan your trip so be sure to pick up the phone and call me or send me an email when you’re ready to start planning.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Got back to the apartment just before it started 🌧 raining super hard!
All good cause it gave us all time to nap 💤 and relax from the day’s activities (I am fairly sure even the twins napped for awhile). Got up in time to see that the rain stopped and the sun was setting 🌅 across the street.
Then we were in search of desserts 🍮 and a quick night cap before tomorrow’s activities (on the move again)! .

Okay I gotta admit - walking 🚶🏻‍♀️ is hard especially in the hot sun (I certainly don’t do it enough at home and I definitely suck at it on vacation - I just lag behind and take random pics 🤦🏻‍♀️) ....
All that walking requires food 🥘- so we stopped in the Trastevere district to have a late lunch (super good but super heavy). I had the Risotto with cream of Shrimp 🦐, Liam had a cheese, ham & mushroom 🍄 pizza, Zach had Linguine with meat sauce and the Hub❤️ had gnocchi with 4 cheeses! All so yummy 😋- we had to share and taste everything (cause sharing is caring when it comes to food in this family 🙋🏻‍♀️). .

Walked from the Vatican to the Pantheon (took a photo in front cause it was too busy to go inside), then headed over to Fontana Di Trevi (it wasn’t as busy as the last time we were there), hopped over to the museum in front of the Roman Forum and finally made it to the Colosseum.
Got pictures of the boys trying to beat the heat and posing in front of all the sites (cause it might be awhile before we are back as we have other places to see). Then a nice cool walk along the Tiber river and in the shade to our late lunch 🍴(I think we all got a little bit too much sun ☀️ and needed away from the crowds by the end of the day). .

Сегодня дождливый, но бесконечно прекрасный в любую погоду. Ещё одна из лучших обзорных площадок - монумент Алтарь отечества ‘Altare della patria’, с разных уровней и с разных сторон можно наблюдать виды на древний и современный город. Одно из популярных мест паломничества фотографов, инстаграмеров. А на самую верхнюю точку можно подняться на лифте, полюбоваться с высоты птичьего полёта! #piazzavenezia #altaredellapatria #centrohistorico #gabbiano #bandieraitaliana #rimexcurs #romacapitale #lebellezzediroma #romanità #romanlifestyle #romeista #romagram #dailyrome #meetrome #cometorome #visitrome #romeitaly #wheninrome #romegreatbeauty #romelife#romecityworld

Had our cappuccinos this morning (yes the twins had some too - they occasionally drink Nespresso at home - still super weird but oh well 🤷🏻‍♀️) and decided to walk back to the Vatican 🇻🇦 for the Pope’s blessing at noon.
Although it was super hot (weather wise) none of us burst into flames 🔥 (going to hell - religion wise) - definitely neat to see and hear even though we are not religious.
Love that the twins are so down to earth 🌏 in regards to their world views and have such a strange sense of humour (although now that I think about it what else do you expect from kids that are hugely influenced by the Hub❤️ and myself? 🙃). .
.
Tried to get the Skip the Line passes for the Vatican and museums; however, everyone was fully booked today and tomorrow. Managed to purchase some for Friday morning before our flight ✈️ so change in plans for the day!
Took off towards downtown Rome and all the sites with all the tourists. .

The thermal baths of Rapolano and the truffles of San Giovanni D’Asso are just some of the wonders that this area offers. Although the whole region is filled with beautiful farms and vineyards, our favorite part might have to be the Val d’Orcia, pictured both here and at top.
