The pantheon

  • When we were ready, we go to school. Nothing else to arrive, we went towards to the underground, to go to the city center.
  • In the center, we go to fountains, churches, and the best of the day, (for me) The Pantheon.
  • After de visit to the center, almost all Spaniards and their exchanges went to a burger, and then to play soccer.

The coliseum

  • The wensday we go to the school like the other day, and we went to the subway.
  • That day we were going to go to the coliseum, which along with the Vatican, was what I liked most, the audio guide was very interesting.
  • We visit the arc of titto, of constantino, of septimio severo , and the imperial forum.
  • In the afternoon, Leonardo and I went to Diego`s house, Mario and Filippo(Mario´s exchange) went to.

The vatican museums

  • We visit all the vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel, and San Peter`s church.
  • Going to the subway, we stop a moment to buy souvenirs.
  • In the afternoon, we go to Della`s house


  • On Friday we go to school like in Monday but without a party.
  • The lessons finished at 1:00 instead of finishing at 2:00.
  • After the school, all Italians and Spaniards went to a park to eat pizza and cake.
  • Afterwards, we went to some tracks, but they were busy.
  • Then I went to Filippo`s house because my exchange had soccer training.

Villa d`este

  • On Saturday we went with our italian family to villa d`este, a beautiful place with wonderful gardens.
  • In the afternoon my italian family took me to the city center to see some things we had not seen, like the Plaza de España, or the Fontana de trevi .
  • We ate a delicious ice cream and we buy pizzas to eat at home

The farewell

  • We wake up a bit later, we get dressed, we have breakfast, and we go to Ostia, a beach of Rome.
  • When the time comes, they buy some pizza for me, and we go to the airport.
  • The farewell was hard, and I almost started to cry.
