Traveling in Italy: Rome

Greetings travellers!
I had a vacation for two weeks so I decided to go to a somewehere new.
I've never been to Italy, so why not?
Now I had the opportunity to see the places I had only seen in books and movies.
So... Colosseum. Everyone has seen the Gladiator movie..? Russell Crowe <3 It was much smaller than what it looks like in the movies .

Pantheon. Tom Hanks went there in the Angels and Demons movie.

The Roman Forum

The Trevi Fountain. Toss the coin and make a wish. ( I didnt wish a return trip to Rome )
There were LOTS of coins on the bottom.
Workers scrub the floor of the fountain daily to collect visitors' discarded coins. The coins are used for charity.

The Spanish Steps,or I would say the tourist steps.

This is the street for the designers shops. I went to see the Dolce & Gabbana shop, and the staff looked at me like I was totally in the wrong place, even I was wearing their sunglasses ^^´
I didnt do much of shopping in Italy, but I bought couple of pieces from the vintage shop. I got amazing 50's Italian vintage dress, red vintage jacket and black vintage bell skirt. I will add some pictures to my blog later.
The Italian food is overrated. The pizza tastes like Dr. Oetkers frozen pizza. The spaghetti was stiff, the cheese cake was frozen from inside. At least the wine was cheap and drikable.
I heard that in Italy there would be no wine tax at all

Fountain of Four Rivers.
The Fountain of the Four Rivers was the fourth stop on Robert Langdon's "Path of Illumination" in Angels and Demons.
The fountain was smaller and less deep than in the movie.
Castel Saint Angelo.
This castle was the meeting spot of the Illuminati, and is connected to the Vatican through a secret passage.
