Our own little Roman Holiday – part two

Ciao Ciao!

I hope you enjoyed looking over our first couple of days in Rome! By the second day, we were having a blast! It was super, super hot! More than what we are used to, but we went with it and still had an amazing time. Read on for our next day.

Day 3 – Thursday

Mamma Butterfly wasn’t feeling too well today and decided to have a rest in the apartment. So, me the kids and Mr BC headed off into Rome to seek out a hop on/hop off bus and take in as much of Rome as we could.

We did the full bus tour – we did get for a short detour to Castle Sant Angelo as it is one of my favourite buildings in Rome and I really want to go to the Museum. So we jumped off and head around the museum and then jumped back on to finish the tour. The kids got a bit fed up walking around Castel Sant’Angelo! It wasn’t the most child friendly if museums, but I really enjoyed walking around and seeing some beautiful art and architecture, and reading about the history and how Popes would flee to hear was amazing. I love the angels in the Castle, but my favourite part is the view from the very top. The view of the whole if Rome is incredible but the sight if St Peters is spectacular!

Once we had ran around the Castle and saw all it had to offer, we had some lunch and head back onto the bus. Where we had free headphones and got to hear lots of stories about Rome, whilst getting to see lots of sights of Rome.

Monkey was most impressed with the mythological origins of Rome.

As we headed back around to the Ancient side of Rome, and to the Colosseum, it all just got a little too much for my little travellers!

Just like at home
I maybe miles from home, but I’m never far from a good cup of tea, biscuits and some books!

After a long day of tours, we settled in for a bit of a rest and Mr BC made us some Spaghetti Bolognese! It was yummy and a perfect end to an amazing day!

Day three appears to be a long day of lots of photo taking! And as next day was filled full of adventure, I will leave you wanting more and sign off for now! But stay tuned for part 3 of our Roman Adventure!

Ciao for now!
