One of the things that I will forever be grateful about my job was the opportunity to travel and see the world. Indeed I have been lucky that my deployment for audit engagements were in Europe. The chance to visit Rome was definitely a blessing.
The moment we arrived in Rome, we just threw our luggage in our apartment and headed straight to the Vatican City.
|Pontifical Swiss Guard|
I wish I had a photo taken with one of the Papal Swiss Guards...Though I doubt that they would allow it...
The Colosseo is one of the landmarks and popular tourist spots in Rome, unfortunately, it was undergoing some renovations at the time we were there.
Just had to have a photo taken with the Colosseo in the background. :)
A colleague suggested that I pose that way...happy to comply! :)
|Fonta di Trevi|
It is believed that a coin tossed in Trevi Fountain would ensure the comeback to Rome. Well, I did threw a Euro so let's see if that is true. :)
|Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti|
And there was the overly crowded Spanish Steps, another known spot in Rome that leads from Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinita dei Monti at the top.
The controversial statue of Pope John Paul II at the Termini.
|Basilica Di Santa Pudenziana|
I could say that the Basilica Di Santa Pudenziana is the church of the Filipino population in Rome because the mass there was in Filipino. Filipino delicacies are also available every Sunday. :)
Of course how can I forget Via Urbana...The place where we lived during our one month stay in Rome is located here.
