It’s been 26 years since it snowed in Rome…

Today I had prepared another post but this morning when I woke up, a surprise awaited me!

Who likes the snow in the city? I like!

Or rather, I like to see the effect it does in Rome wake up under a white blanket up to 50 cm high!

It’s been 26 years since it snowed in Rome …

It looks like magic, I expect to see elves jump from one monument to another … while the gulls seem to be asking where are they!

So far, all meet in Piazza del Popolo for a “Snowballs battle”!

I begin to prepare myself!

A walk in the green up to the ”Amor Sacro and Amor Profano”

English: The building of Villa Borghese, Roma,...

One of the tours not to be missed is Villa Borghese...
The Villa was built to be a museum, even though it was surrounded by a thriving farm, with vegetable gardens, vineyards, a large aviary and an intense social life made ​​of hunting and cultural meetings.
Unique opportunity to visit the great collection started at the beginning of the seventeenth century by Cardinal Scipione, that brings together masterpieces by Tiziano, BerniniCorreggioCaravaggio and Canova!

Moreover, to get up there, as  in these days the weather in Rome is beautiful, you will enjoy the walk in the Park of  Villa Borghese starting from Piazza del Popolo!

A curiosity: the word Popolo(People) is not really for the People but is a transformation of the latin word for Poplar, so this is actually the Square of the Poplar!

But REMEMBER … to visit the Villa Borghese, is necessary to book the ticket!

Is there a GHOST in Palazzo de Cupis in Rome?

Here is  a treat not to be missed!
Walking through Piazza Navona and admiring the beautiful Bernini fountains, in these days, surrounded by stalls of  Christmas, you can get lost in a triumph of color and sweet!
If you feel dizzy, then look up ….. but do not be frightened!

I’m kidding, of course ….. BUT on one side of the Palazzo de Cupis, will greet you a small marble head, walled, inside of the facade, that an ancient roman legend says, is that of a ghost!!!

PALAZZO DE CUPIS
Via Santa Maria dell’Anima 17
To see the “ghost“,,,,, have a look at the facade on Piazza Navona!
