2 April 2015
It’s the third last day of the trip and we went to so many places on this day that I had a hard time recalling where is where. Put in lots of effort Googling before I finally got the names of most of them~
Anyway, our guest house came with breakfast (yayyy! Can saved $$$) and we had this bright dining area that I quite like!
No fanciful breakfast but just cakes and snacks~ Good enough because I like cakes and sweet stuff 😀
First stop of the day – Neptune Fountain!
This is another fountain – Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of Four Rivers)~ There are really many fountains in Rome and most of them come with clean drinking water! I still don’t dare to try it because I think we are all used to boiling our water first 😅
The obelisk of the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, with Chiesa di Sant’Agnese in Agone on the right~
I think Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone is one of the prettier churches we have seen in Rome (:
The area where all the artists gather~
Back to the Pantheon!
After visiting The Pantheon in Paris, we had kinda expected what it’s gonna be like inside, so we did not stay as long for this one in Rome xD
Ceiling shots again!
Next destination – Basilica of San Ignazio!
Like I’ve mentioned, by Rome, we had already visited so many cathedrals that I lost count, so we were already kinda immune to them ._. No longer so wowwww but just snap and go kind~
Still like the ceiling paintings though (:
Next stop, which is yet another church – San Marcello al Corso!
Mandatory ceiling shot~
Virgin Mary & Jesus
Chanced upon Santa Maria in Via Lata but I think we did not go in? Can’t find interior shots of it so we must have just passed by only~
Altare della Patria next! I forgot if we actually went in, but I doubt so?
And I totally can’t recall where I took this. That’s the problem when I’m not the one planning the itinerary! Haha! But I remember it’s in a museum where photography is not allowed (there are a few places we visited that are like that), and these are photos that I secretly snapped~
Back to church-hopping again and arrived at Basilica of Sant’Agostino!
Interior of Basilica of Sant’Agostino~
We realised that most of the churches in Europe has a big organ inside!
All the churches look more or less the same by now but I suppose these are all still taken within Basilica of Sant’Agostino?
Taking a break from churches as we arrived at The Palace of Justice, which is their Supreme Court of Cassation! The exterior is quite nice ya~ It’s not open to the public hence we only took photos outside (:
Finally some nature shot! Quite pretty; I like the feel of it!
And from far, we can see our next destination – Castel Sant’Angelo!
Again, I think we only took photos outside because you gotta buy a ticket for most of the attractions, and we figured that we had enough of paintings and historical monuments ._.
Back to the pretty Sant’Agnese in Agone again!
I think it was closed in the morning when we passed by, that’s why we came back again in the late afternoon~ But the interior isn’t as impressive as its exterior though.
The flowers’ market aka Campo dei Fiori Market! A pity most of the stalls were closed by then. Love the pretty and vibrant colours! 😀
I think we ended the day pretty early because we had run out of places to go ._. Rome is really quite boring!
