Photo TR: The Roman Empire Tour


Recommended Posts

Recently went to Rome for a five day break. Rainbow Magicland was the main draw, but there were a few smaller parks along with loads of touristy stuff as well. Rome itself is like a large well themed park with beautiful building and historical sites.

On to photos....

 

ADMIN EDIT: I went ahead and added the "Photo TR" notation to the front of your thread's title. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Day 1 proper;

Zoomarine was the first park i visited. As the name suggests it's a mini seaworld with some rollercoasters and flat rides thrown in.

The shows are absolutely brilliant here.

Nice photos so far! Zoomarine has been advertising a lot lately, but I haven't had a chance to see much of the park yet. Aside from Vertigo I knew nothing of the parks ride selection; looks decent for an animal park. And I'm glad the shows are good. I hope I can visit soon!

 

I can't wait to see if you got a ride on Shock at Magicland.

Will things ever be the same again?.......It's the Faunal Countdown! Sorry, I couldn't resist. Nice photos. Looks like a very popular attraction. And you have to love the Schwarzkopf goodness!

Thanks for you comments.

 

Both Zoomarine and Rainbow Magicland are heavily advertised in Rome. Zoomarine have a promotion with Mcdonalds and you can get money of coupons from there too.

 

I left Zoomarine at around 3pm to go to a Fantasiland.

Fantasiland is a newly discovered park about 10 minutes walk from Zoomarine. I spent under an hour there before returning to Zoomarine as i had to catch my free return shuttle to Rome from there.

 

Onto photos of Fantasiland.

Enjoy :-)

Outstanding trip report- the Schwarz-Porn was TOP NOTCH, and with some great lifthill, brakerun and car porn. Two thumbs WAY up. As for the last picture- that's one of the saddest looking ride-cars I've ever seen. Perhaps it's due to his surroundings!

Yes agree, it is one of the saddest looking ride car i've seen too. The surrounding were not too good.

It seams like the park is a showman's ground were rides come and go. The place does needs a lot of attention and care.

Day 2) Today was the Colosseum day. I had booked a hypogeum (underground/basement) and the third level tour.

This is the first instance that public have been allowed to access the underground level of the Colosseum since ancient times. Even in the ancient times public were not allowed in the lower level.

Lower level was only for gladiators and animals. Public were not allowed to go up to the third level as well now.

The tour had to be booked in advance. The English speaking tours were sold out for my trip so i had to book a Italian speaking tour even though i didn't speak the language. The tour was great.

Onto photos

Bye bye Colosseum :-)

It was a long trip report section as the Colosseum being one of the wonders of the world deserved it. Thanks for hanging in there till the end. More reports from the Vatican City, smaller Rome amusement parks ,walk around Rome and Rainbow Magicland to come. Thanks again for reading.

Amazing! I can only imagine what that tour must have been like, even in a language you do not speak. Italy is number one on my places to visit, and it's for things like this. I just can't even imagine walking down the street and seeing the Colosseum. When I finally get there I'm sure I'll have tears in my eyes just standing in that place. Thanks so much for sharing!

I've been to the Colosseo twice now. It's one of the better sights in a city full of amazing sights. I had no idea you could tour the underground passages. I'll be sure to book that next time I'm in Rome.

First of all, thank you for reading my trip report and enjoying my holiday experience. Thanks for all the feedback as well

Italy is one of my favarite countries. The Colosseum is just purely amazing. I'm sure when you get there you will have a great time

Underground tour only opened this year and no one knows how long they will operate for. Hopefully when your there next they will be open.

 

Continueing the report, after the Colosseum i went to the Roman Forams and walked the around the city for a bit.

Enjoy.

After the Roman Forams we headed to Romes best shopping street Via del Corso.

P1030256.thumb.JPG.7fa018b7b2a72023d1e5ebf5305b8157.JPG

Off Via del Corso is the famous Trevi Fountain.

P1030258.thumb.JPG.1a6c59b464b13c8a63c7b593d83bfe89.JPG

Traditional holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome.

P1030259.JPG.ad747c84c46450f7d0133f86f7b6af18.JPG

The huge crowd at the fountain certainly believed that, as loads were chucking their hard earned cash in there.

On average 3000 euros worth of coins are collected from the fountain every day.

I'm having a fountain installed in my back garden, so those not fortunate to visit Trevi fountain; sure can chuck their coins in my fountain :-)

Really cool pictures! I think you answered my question in a caption, those walls within the middle of the Colosseum were actually underneath the floor they battled on? Wasn't sure if it was that or they fought in between the walls. It's neat to see all that was under there. I'll be looking into that tour whenever I get to Rome.

That's correct, new part is the flooring were the battles happened. The walls below are rooms minus the roof were the animals and Gladiators were kept before the fights.

 

 

Oasi Park is a small children park in South eastern Rome. The nearest metro station is Giulio Agricola which is on the A line. The park is 5/6 minutes walk from the metro station. The park has a wacky worm coaster called Mini Mouse.

Eden Park is is located in western Rome. It is one minute walk from metro station Battistini, the last stop on line A.

Eden park is even smaller then Oasi Park in size so may only interest the hardcore coaster counters. Like Oasi Park it has one big Apple coaster call "Brucomela"

Rome ruins is a great sight - especially when you think what ancient rome offered before going downward: concrete domes, fresh hot and cold water, sufficient drainage system, floor heating....and that when the rest of europe was still living in shacks.

^If you want to be near Termini Station, Hotel Yes is excellent. But if you're planning on just staying in Rome (aka not doing a lot of regional train day trips), I'd pay more to stay in a nicer area like near the Pantheon, which has much better cafes, gelaterias, etc. Though being near Termini does give you easy subway access certain sights like the Vatican, Colosseum, Forum, etc.

LOVE this report! I am thinking Rome for my vacation next summer and this is great info! Do you mind sharing what hotel you stayed at and would you recommend it?

 

Thanks for liking the report

I fully agree with the last reply. For ease of transport you can't beat Termini. Even though more expensive the area around Pantheon or Piazza Novona, are a much nicer area to stay in.

I stayed near Termini for ease of transport. Shuttle to Zoomarine and Rainbow magicland depart from here. Also i frequently used the metro so staying near Termini was a better option for me.

I stayed in Augusta Lucilla Palace hotel http://www.augustalucillapalace.com/

Review here http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g187791-d1060784-Reviews-Augusta_Lucilla_Palace-Rome_Lazio.html

 

Hotel was ok but do make your own mind up after reading the review.
