The editor-in-chief of Italy for Me, Yana Yakutsevich and two Elena, are our regular readers. Our first meeting at the Coliseum, May 7, 2014. Making a wish!
Today we would like to share with you a photo report and impressions of the first excursion in Rome for regular readers of “Italy for Me”. As you already know, dear friends, Yana and I decided to periodically meet with you in the form of a free tour of the Eternal City at dawn. This news at the end of April aroused unexpected interest in our Facebook community. We initially limited the number of participants of the excursion to 7 lucky ones, so that those who did get to the meeting felt comfortable, and we could devote enough attention to everyone and answer all questions. Despite the initial hype, of the 5 people who signed up, only two Elena came to the meeting. Well, all that is not being done for the better is experience, we decided and went to enjoy morning Rome on May 7, 2014.
At the Roman Forum, we, of course, were also almost alone. Why practically?
Yes, because there was already a seagull staking out for itself the best place on the observation deck. She behaved very importantly, demanded food and was not going to fly anywhere.
At the Forum, we were joined by Jaroslav, who came to see the sights of Rome with his friend from the city of Lecce and accidentally heard a native speech. So our company has increased a little, and one more person has added to the readership of “Italy for Me”.Arthur and Yana Yakutsevich, Elena and our new reader Yaroslav on Capitol Square, May 7, 2014.
Our regular readers Helena came to Rome from the glorious city of Kiev.
And what an Italian morning without coffee! Notice that almost the Italian Yaroslav chose espresso instead of the cappuccino allowed for breakfast. The fact is, he has long lived in the south of Italy, and it so happened that the farther south the region, the more coffee is brewed in it. Therefore, Roman (and even more so Milan) espresso is just some water for the southerner.
We completed our almost 4-hour walk on the Spanish Steps, which in the first weeks of May blooms and smells in the truest sense of the word.Arthur and Yana Yakutsevich, Elena and Yaroslav on the Spanish Steps in May 2014.
Letter of feedback from Elena
Still not knowing that I would be in Italy, I joined the FB in the group “ITALY FOR ME”, followed the news, read the information.
It all started with the fact that my best friend married an Italian in Italy. This event could not be missed a priori, and it’s not reasonable to fly to Italy for a couple of days)) Without hesitation, I made a plan for my mini trip: Milan - Parma - Rome - Vatican - Florence - Venice. And here the good news in the FB that a free tour of Rome is organized is a sin not to go, although at 7 in the morning you need to be at the indicated place. I want to note that 7 am is an ideal time to walk around Rome, because it’s not very hot, there are few tourists, no businessmen yet.
I am impressed and plan to fly again in July 2014.
Rome is riddled with history. The history of Rome is literally in every stone, in every street, in every building, for example, "English Courtyard", "Spanish Steps" and much more. Rome is one big attraction, guys, thank you very much for organizing and your time!
Thank you for your professionalism and great sense of humor :)
Thank you for showing Rome! A.
I will recommend you to our friends and acquaintances! Sincerely, Lena (Ukraine, Kiev) "
