*** Suitcases around Rome for a day *** Take 4

Piazza di Spagna

Piazza di SpagnaAnd finally, before taking the metro to the train station, the suitcases went to see Piazza di Spagna!

There is a nice fountain (sculpted by Pietro Bernini and his son, the more famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini) just in front of the famous Spanish Steps (on the left), but it is so crowded with tourists that you can’t see them in this photo… 🙂 The Spanish steps you probably have seen in fashion events, wondering how can the models walk down without looking…! At least  I always wonder… 🙂

*** Suitcases around Rome for a day *** Take 1

Piazza Navona

Suitcases #1In Piazza Navona you can see the Church of “Sant’Agnese in Agone”, in the picture, the Church of “Nostra Signora del Sacro Cuore” (not in the picture).

There is fountain in the center,  Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi or Fountain of the Four Rivers (1651), by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. The fountain is topped by the Obelisk of Domitian. There are another two fountains, Fontana del Moro (1575) and Fountain of Neptune (1574).

And then, there are tenths of people selling and/or making paintings an drawings about Rome or Italy in general. Most of them are clearly just prints, that you can find anywhere (at least in several places in Rome…). I think it would be much more interesting if they were selling their own original work…
