羅馬 Roma<歷史印記>    

5月22日剛抵達羅馬(Roma)達文西機場,我就已經感受到他的炎熱將會折磨我好幾天。。。

羅馬(Roma/Rome)是一個大家都耳熟能詳的地名,至少歷史、地理課本還有考卷都曾經出現過!古老建築是羅馬(Roma)的特色也是他最迷人的地方,最有名的非"圓形競技場"(Colosseo)莫屬,就算不知道羅馬的人也一定在電視或圖片上看過圓形競技場,古老競技場外無時無刻都是大排長龍的觀光客,位的就是親身體驗圓形競技場的非凡氣勢!頂著可怕的大太陽排隊,終於買了票進到圓型競技場內部,眼前的場景讓我想起"神鬼戰士"劇中的格鬥畫面,老虎、獅子好像又出現了!雖然不斷想像猛獸的攻擊,但我可不是神鬼戰士。。。競技場內的遊客相當多,不時就會有人請你替他們拍照,這在歐洲很常見,一般替他們拍完如果有要求他們也是十分樂意幫你拍,這是單身被包客被拍照的最好機會!

Roma/Rome

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rome (English pronunciation: /ˈroʊm/ItalianRoma pronounced [ˈroːma]LatinRōma) is the capital of Italy and the country's largest and most populated city and comune, with over 2.7 million residents in 1,285.3 km2 (496.3 sq mi). The city is located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, on the Tiber River within the Lazio region of Italy.

Rome's history spans two and a half thousand years. It was the capital city of the Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire, which was the dominant power in Western Europe and the lands bordering the Mediterranean for over seven hundred years from the 1st century BC until the 7th century AD. Since the 1st century AD Rome has been the seat of the Papacy and, after the end of Byzantinedomination, in the 8th century it became the capital of the Papal States, which lasted until 1870. In 1871 Rome became the capital of theKingdom of Italy, and in 1946 that of the Italian Republic.

After the Middle Ages, Rome was ruled by popes such as Alexander VI and Leo X, who transformed the city into one of the major centers of the Italian Renaissance, along with Florence. The current version of St Peter's Basilica was built and the Sistine Chapel was painted by Michelangelo. Famous artists and architects, such as BramanteBernini and Raphael resided for some time in Rome, contributing to itsRenaissance and Baroque architecture.

Rome has been ranked by GaWC in 2010 as a beta+ world city, as well as the 28th most important global city. In 2007, Rome was the 11th-most-visited city in the world, 3rd most visited in the European Union, and the most popular tourist attraction in Italy. The city is one of Europe's and the world's most successful city "brands", both in terms of reputation and assets. Its historic centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum are amongst the world's 50 most visited tourist destinations (the Vatican Museums receiving 4.2 million tourists and the Colosseum receiving 4 million tourists every year). Rome hosted the 1960 Summer Olympics and is currently bidding to host the 2020 Summer Olympics.

一般購買門票時票價(12€)會包含圓形競技場(Colosseo)帕拉提諾之丘(Palatino),離開圓形競技場(Colosseo)往前走幾步路就可以抵達羅馬議事廣場(Foro Romano),只要持圓形競技場+帕拉提諾之丘的票就可進入,整個廣場的範圍並不小時間不趕的話可以慢慢逛完。

當然羅馬可不是只有圓形競技場,氣勢一樣驚人的還有威尼斯廣場(Piazza Venezia)上的維克多艾曼紐二世紀念堂(Vittoriano),由白色大理石建造的高大建築是獻給義大利統一後的第一位國王,內部可免費參觀但想要登頂的遊客就需要付費搭電梯!

西班牙廣場(Piazza di Spagna)也是個不錯的地方,除了名氣還有其週遭林立的精品店,讓這裡總是滿坑滿谷的觀光客,炎熱的夏天遊客更是包圍著破船噴泉(Fontana della Barcaccia)想要貪得一點清涼。。。

可能五月份的太陽真的還很大,羅馬(Roma真的是個非常嚴熱的城市,但也可以利用傍晚太陽威力稍減再出門探險,只是要注意自身財物安全!整體而言羅馬(Roma)是個相當有魅力的城市,而且全世界最小國-梵蒂岡(Vaticano)就在羅馬(Roma)城內,所以可以在短短幾分鐘內由羅馬"入境"參觀這個擁有最多信仰人口的世界最小國。
