Circus Maximus, Giardino degli Aranci, Colosseo, Catacomb of Callixtus (Rome, Italy)🇮🇹

This is super duper late post actually😅 this should be posted last year but I don’t have much time to post because I really enjoy going everywhere in Rome, Italy that time!❤️

Still it was a good vacation so I’ll share it with you.

Whenever you want to go to Italy, this places are also good place to visit!👍🏻🇮🇹

  • Circus Maximus

– it is an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium and mass entertainment venue in Rome it is near Colosseo and it is between the Aventine and Palatine hills.

  • Giardino degli Aranci

– it is near Giardino delle Rose, I went there last time when it was summer time it was also a beautiful garden full of different flowers, this giardino degli Aranci is more of a park with a great view

  • Colosseo

– Colosseo again and again, everytime you’ll go here you will always be amaze of it and still want to have a picture with it because of its beautiful structure, unluckily I still didn’t get to go inside. Somedaaaay😊

After that we got hungry so we need to eat, I brought him to my fave restaurant in Rome, 100 montaditos.

After eating our friends followed us and we decided to go to Catacomb of Callixtus (a little far from the city)

  • Catacomb of Callixtus

– its is one of the Catacombs in Rome, mostly it contains the Crypt of the Popes. It opens at 9 am and closes at 5 in the afternoon, luckily we arrived there at around 4 in the afternoon, we still have time to roam around(little time hahaha)

But it was a beautiful place especially because of different tress there.

After that since my boyfriends house is near here we decided to eat dinner at his house😊

After that he accompany us going home.

Pisa, Italy🇮🇹

Finally! After how many attempts of going to Pisa, this time we’ve finally made it.

The first attempt was last 2015, my first time in Italy, we didn’t go because we don’t have much time and i’m already going back to Philippines, the second time still can’t fix the date and time and people who want to go with us, then for that third time, finally!😍

Pisa, Italy is best known for its leaning tower.

It is located in the northern half of Tuscany, not far from the coast and about an hour west of Florence.

From Rome going to Pisa we ride the train first going to Florence for an hour and a half then from there we ride again the train going to Pisa for about an hour.

Popular photo opportunity with tourists is to pose as if one was either holding up or pushing over the tower.

And because it’s the famous pose, everyone in that place has been doing the same poses😂 so that makes the people around there to look like they are in thriller music video😂✌🏻 And also doing different poses was sooo difficult especially if you are not so good in taking pictures but it’s alright it’s part of the experience in going to that Leaning tower of Pisa.

Here are some of me and my mom’s epic fail pose!😅😅😅

Either it’s not in the right position or there are photobombers😂

But still we have fine pictures and some of it my uncle edited it because he’s good at it and it’s his work.

Then here are some other places around,

We also ate lunch near the tower and the food was great👌🏻

Then for my ootd⤵️⤵️⤵️

  • Top from Zara
  • Jeans from Tally Weijl
  • Flat shoes from H&M



Watched cinema with mama❤️👌🏻

“Spiderman : Homecoming” film was great, it still has the essence of the story of spiderman. It’s a must watch movie👍🏻

Even though it’s in Italian language(I don’t understand much) but I still enjoy watching it👍🏻😂 I’ll just download it later in english when it’s available and re-watch😂

When summer it’s best to wear something comfy and not that so hot to wear, specially when you will be walking around under the sun. 

Keep it simple and basic to begin with👌🏻

Something you’ll be comfortable for the whole day☺️
