We spent the last day seeing what we hadn’t been able to visit so far. The day like any other in the Italian capital was, of course, full of excitement….
During the fifth day of our visit, we still took advantage of the fact that we have a 500 hundred car at our disposal.
Table of contents
Our first point was the Karakalli Thermae. This time it was active, not like a few days ago:)
As part of our archaeological charters, we also had access to the Thermal Baths built by Karakala (at this point I recommend learning about the activities of this ruler ;) ). It is necessary to spend approx. 1-1,5 h. The giant walls give an idea of what these thermal baths looked like in their heyday.
It is also possible to go underground, where advanced for the time water heating and sewage-related technologies were used.
A short trip to Tivoli
In addition, taking advantage of the fact that we still had a car, we drove up to Will in and around Tivoli, which is a few dozen kilometers away. The most popular and certainly worth seeing is Hadrian’s Villa. Here, unfortunately, admission is charged, but worth spending the few euros. After a tiring sightseeing tour of Rome, you can take a leisurely walk in the quiet and beautiful surroundings at the same time relaxing.
At the end of the tour, we still drove up the hill to Tivoli itself for a beautiful view of the villas and Rome itself.
…And on the way back we hooked up once again with the magnificent Colosseum.
Ice cream ice cream ice cream…. Once again, the best ice cream in Rome! :)
After returning to Rome, we decided at the very end of our weekend getaway to go to by far the best ice cream in Rome, which was right next to our lodging on Via Portuense. We highly recommend it to anyone visiting Rome.
Of course, it is not a typical tourist ice cream shop, as it is not located in the center. So all the more reason to venture a little further afield to get a taste of real Italian ice cream :)
The seventh day in Rome was our last day of the extended May… At the very end, we went for one last walk through the Roman streets in the evening.
Food on LOT planes
At the very end of what was a successful trip, our national carrier treated us to quite a bit of entertainment! As the flight was in the afternoon, it was lunchtime. See what we were served :)
So there is nothing to regret, after LOT introduced paid meals on its flights ;)
Finally, we invite you to visit the gallery:
