Day 1

Day 1 ROME Tuesday 29th June
We didn't miss the plane!! Arrived in Rome at 7.30am. Booked in to the hotel Piemonte- very nice AND cheap. Just around the corner from the Termini (major train station).

Hightlights today:

Got great views of Lake Eyre as we crossed Aust.

Malaysian Airlines food was tops!!

Flew along the Mediterannean Sea - the coast of Greece is exactly the same as it is on the map!!

Great views of the mountains of Italy

Walked the steets of Rome today - You're right Sutts - it's just amazing how you walk along the narrow cobblestone streets and come across famous and historical land marks.

  • Trevi Fountain (the only place we found a crowd), Santa Maria Basilicav (beautiful inside and we heard the massive pipe organ being played while a service was run), Piazza della Republica.

Had the best gellati ever

Lived out the car chase scene from the movie "The Italian Job" as our mini bus hurlted us through the narrow streets of Rome at breakneck speed.
