Roman Holiday

The Roman Colosseum at dusk

No, today's blog entry will not be about "Roman Holiday" the wonderful 1953 film starring the legendary Gregory Peck, and the gorgeous Audrey Hepburn that will be for another day. :D Today, I will be writing about an actual vacation to Rome to see the historic sites such as the breathtaking Coliseum as pictured above, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire. Here is another daylight view:

Along with the Coliseum, other must sees in Italy for the history buff would be the trevi fountain, and duomo, the latter being the second largest Gothic cathedral in the world! You can book your hotels in Italy to coincide with the sites that are of most interest to you.

Rome is an obvious choice destination for its historical significance. Every year tourists flock to the Parthenon, the Vatican, and of course the Sistine Chapel itself. Many of the hotels in Rome have an interesting history or are of historical importance themselves.

The Canals in Venice

Personally when I think of Venice I think of the world famous canals, palazzo grassi, an of course the Fenice. And while there are many Venice hotels to choose from should I visit I would love to stay at Abbazia Hotel Venice, which was once an ancient abbey!
