Rome, Italy: Le Terme Del Colosseo

March 19, 2014
Le Terme Del Colosseo Rome Italy
As a part of our Trafalgar tour, we were brought for dinner to Le Terme Del Colosseo in Rome on our first night. Indeed, it was a great way to start your tour of Italy. I have seen a lot bad reviews about this restaurant on tripadvisor and I must agree with some of the comments about this place being a tourist trap. Well it is, but in a good way. Where else can you find a restaurant which gives you an opera perform

Things To Do in Rome: Visit the Holiest Catholic Site – St Peter’s Basilica

January 19, 2014
St Peter's Basilica in Vatican Rome
Now how do I even describe St Peter’s Basilica ? Where do I begin? Am I even allowed to do that? Me, a lowly person – to describe the greatest church in the whole history of Christianity? I’ll sure try but I assure you, whatever I’m going to tell you right now and whatever photos I will post – doesn’t even come close to what you will actually see/feel if you go there yourself.

Things To Do in Rome: Relive The History of The Roman Colosseum

August 22, 2013
Colosseum, Rome, Italy
Rome was one of the first four cities I visited the very first time I traveled alone to Europe (along with Paris, Florence and Munich) and the Roman Colosseum excited me the most about that trip. You see when I was still in school, World History really piqued my interest – Rome’s in particular and I was on a high when I realized that I am on my way to see one of the greatest architecture of the Roman em

August 11, 2013
If you’re a geek like I am and enjoys historical places particularly ancient ruins, then you should add a day trip to Ostia Antica in your bucket list. I took a bus tour from Rome and it’s about an hour away, you can actually go there by train but it’s really recommended to have a tour guide with you while you visit the site. Our tour guide was this lovely professor who knew very well Ostia Antic

Where I Stayed in Rome: Boscolo Exedra Hotel

August 5, 2013
Boscolo Hotel is an Italian, 5-star hotel chain with properties in key cities within Italy and some other parts of Europe. We’ve stayed in one of their properties – the Boscolo Exedra Hotel in Rome which is the first 5-star luxury hotel in the Eternal city. The unique point about this property is it used to be a palace in the 19th century. The luxurious lobby and elegant rooms clearly shows this. Thi

Things To Do in Rome: Make A Wish At The Trevi Fountain

August 4, 2013
Trevi Fountain or Fontana di Trevi is probably the most famous fountain in the world, well at least for me and for the rest of the people you will see flocked in this fountain at any given time of the day. I have only been to Rome twice, the first one was during April and the second one was during November. Both times though, it’s the same number of crowd in this area which makes it quite hard to take a phot
