Flag of Italy  , Lazio,
Friday, July 5, 2013

Friday was our last day in Rome. So since it was our last day we thought we might go to a place to the catacombs. The catacombs are a serious of long windy tunnels under Rome with tons of dead bodies in them. Sadly it would be a waste of money because tourists want to keep the bodies as souvenirs. Because of this they removed all the bodies.

Then instead of that we were thinking about Capuchin Church. That is a church decorated with human bones and it has munks wearing human skulls as masks. Sadly we didn't go there either because you can't take pictures and you have to be ten years or older meaning my six year old brother couldn't go. Then someone would have to stay with him so only two of us could go.

In the end we just wandered around Rome. I saw the same Roman helmet as before. Me and my brother got one each. I got a Roman Centurion helmet while my brother Jared got a gladiator helmet.

Then we walked to the Trevi Fountain. We then started heading back. We passed a guy dresses up as a Roman asking where you are from. We had a picture with one of them before and they cost you £3 per person and you don't even get a say. They ask you where are you from. Then they pull out a fake sword and get in a pose with you. The next thing you know then is that they are asking for £3 per person. So when he asked me where am I from I just said Jupiter. We then just walked away and he looked offended.

When we got back we did a bit of stuff. I worked on my blog. We then went out for dinner and went to this really nice church. It had a flat roof but it looks like its flat. We then went to a restaurant and I had pizza. After dinner we went for a walk and we saw the street artist again. I got one of the colosseum with the Italian flag background. Sadly it was already done so we didn't get to see him paint it. We got the painting and went back to our apartment to get ready for a nice night sleep.

By the time we got back it was past 10 O'clock and we would have to wake up at 5.00 Am to catch our train to Switzerland.

I would recommend Rome to any person who wants to learn lots of history and doesn't mind everything to be extremely late.
