Travel Challenge Day 10. Reveal.

This photo is the Collescium in Rome. We visited in May 2015.

We walked  miles  and  saw  so  much! The  weather  was  brilliant  and  we had  also  had  some  wonderful  food  and wine!

We  stayed  at   an hotel  that  was  in the  grounds  of  a  monastery  it  was  set  in  beautiful  gardens  and  there  was  a seminary and  a church. There  were lots of  Nuns  and Priests  there  on  business  and  holiday, there  were  two  groups  of  young  people  on  Lecture  Tours  one  group  from the US, there  were families  and  couples  and  of  course us! It  was  quite  a  mix. It  was a lovely  hotel  and  the staff  were  excellent , polite  cheerful  and happy  to help.

We had  not picked the hotel  because it was  Catholic,  we  picked  it for it’s  location , a two minute  walk  from the  Metro  and  really  good restaurants.  We visited  The  Pantheon, The  Colosseum, The  Forum, The  Spanish Steps, The Borgesie Park,The Vatican, Sistine Chapel, The Vatican Museum  and  the  Trevi Fountain .  St Paul’s Basilica  and  St Paul’s  Square, Argentina Square, Circus Maximus and Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II (National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II (  which  the  locals  call  either  the Typewriter  or  The  Wedding cake) and  more!! PHEW!!

    All I could think of when I saw your picture was the movie “Quo Vadis”…

    If we ever go to Rome, I’ll ask you for the name of the hotel!
