Florence from top of Duomo
Polish girl in Italia
I just started to read this book about life of Miichelangelo Buonarotti. Author of a book moved even for few years to Italy to get know better city of Florence, life and works of this great man of Renaissance. I read many positive reviews about this book so I’m courious if it’s really worth.
Today with my boyfriend we went for a small trip to Assisi to show it to our friend who never was there. It was veery cold and windy. As you can see there was still snow somewhere.
I didn’t move to Italy to have snow in November!!!! :o
Ok, with this post I am very late but I decided that you have right to know about it anyway ;).
Day of Saint Martin is celebrated on November 11th. Around this day, after first cold days, warm and sunny weather is coming back. But after this starts winter period.
It is tradition to drink in this day new wine (vino novello) and eat chestnuts (castagne). In all country have place many events reffering to it. It is occasion to meet with friends and drink this new wine which is very sweet but also very strong ;)
Tonight I was for the very first time in italian cinema. We chose comedy “Sole a catinelle”. I understood almost everything!! Yay!! Progress!! :D
My last trip to Rome I decided to spend in this park. It was my dream from a long time and finally came true. I got there by metro from Termini Station. It took me about 15/20 minutes. Park is not so big but I was there whole day long. There were a lot of people jogging, walking with dogs or riding bikes. Really great place for relax with a little bit of roman history in background. It’s also close to Ciampino airport so every few minutes I saw some planes landing or taking off. Very charming place for me, for sure I will come back there in spring when it will be full of flowers. If you are in Rome and want to runaway from all these crowds of tourists you should come here.
Italians are very social nation. You can enter to a bar and after few minutes you know everybody. But all of these contacts are superficial. You can know all city but with no one you are close.
Is it possible to have obsession about city? Yesterday I was in Rome. While I was waiting at Termini Station for a train to come back home, I was already thinking to come back there as soon as possible :)
Roma on my mind?
Castel Gandolfo is a small town in Lazio, about 10/15 min from Rome close to Albano Lake. It’s one of Castelli Romani (group of small towns at the feet of the Alban Hills). From XVII-th century is loceted here summer residence of Popes (pics nr 1 & 2).
