by - October 14, 2015

Station 1: 
Venice 威尼斯 --The Water City--

A movie "The Tourist" casts by Angelina Jolie brings me to Venice. Venice is a beautiful city in Italy and it looks quite mystery as it has a lot of canals and alley. We may easily get lost in this city. After visit this place, I liked the culture and the way they enjoyed their life. You may see some people sitting beside the waterside drawing the water city. When you come here, you can have a small sweet escape from the hustle and bustle city life. I seriously love the ambiance of Venice and it was like a xanadu for me. Let me show you my journey...

Station 2
Rome 罗馬--The Italian Capital--

From Venice, I had travel to the capital of Italy- Rome. This trip is quite disappointing because the famous architecture such as the Colosseo and Trevi Fountains were under construction(currently there are reopen with a gorgeous look). Therefore, I will come for it next time. Besides, I had the great opportunity to visit the smallest city in the world -- The Vatican City. I was taking the local tour to the Vatican City. It was a good experience to explore this city and I'll recommend you all to visit this city when you travel to Rome.

1. Colosseo 罗馬斗兽场
--Half part of the building was under construction and the entrance was closed.
--It was too bad that I only have the view of outer part of the Colosseo
--The view at night quite spectacular

2. Arco Di Constantino 君士坦丁凯旋门
--You may find it beside the Colosseo 
--it symbolizes victory
--you may meet a lot people selling selfie stick there...haha
3. Piazza Navona 纳沃纳广场
--it was known as the most beautiful piazza in Rome
--you may find 3 fountain in the piazza
--is a good place to date
--a lot stalls along the piazza
**Memory: I have met a seller who has sold the rubber soft toys and he show me when he had thrown the soft toy to the ground, then it will have baby's crying sound. But actually the sound is control by him and not from the rubber soft toys. Therefore, it was quite funny when you know the trick of the seller.
4. Fontana Di Trevi 特莱维喷泉
--it was so unfortunate that it was under construction (now is reopen and looks damn beautiful) 
--they provide a fake fountain for people to throw coins
--The TVB drama "Triumph in the skies" was shooting here before.
Memory: **Although it was under construction, it still attracts a lot of people. So, please take care of your belongings.

5. Pantheon 万神殿
--I didn't go into the building and just take some photos outside
--Is quite big and you may see a lot street performance in front of the pantheon
6. Piazza Di Spagna 西班牙广场
--it was different from what I'm thinking
--it was crowded with people 
--there were a lot of branded shops opposite the Piazza
View from Via del Condotti Street
7. Vatican City 梵蒂冈
-the smallest internationally recognized independent state
-I was taking the local tour as it got special gate for tour group [so we no need wait for long queue] 
**recommend taking tour as the queue is damn long

Haha…I found that there was little attraction to visit and most of the tourist was mainly came for shopping.
