ROME DIARY: VATICAN CITY AND DAVINCI MUSEUM

ROME DAY 2: VATICAN CITY

On the second day of our trip to Roma, and after spending the first day visiting the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Trevi Fountain, we went to the Vatican City, which is, as you probably know, the smallest sovereign state in the world (with an area of approximately 44 hectares, and a population of 842). Within Vatican City are religious and cultural sites such as St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. They feature some of the world’s most famous paintings and sculptures. (wikipedia!)


We forgot to get our tickets to the museum online so we had to wait for aproximately an hour but it was absolutely worth it. There were astonishing paintings everywhere, amazing sculptures and of course, the Sistine Chapel. It is the site of the Papal conclave, the process by which a new pope is selected. The fame of the Sistine Chapel lies mainly in the frescos that decorate the interior, and most particularly the Sistine Chapel ceiling and The Last Judgment by Michelangelo. Too bad we’re not allowed to take pictures (or talk!) inside the Sistine Chapel, the ceiling is breathtaking!

We had lunch in one of the many restaurants inside the museums and then headed to St Peter’s Basilica, which is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and one of the largest churches in the world. Catholic tradition holds that the Basilica is the burial site of St. Peter, one of Christ’s Apostles and also the first Pope. If you’re passionate about sculptures, this is your heaven!

And we finished our second day in Rome by visiting the Leonardo Da Vinci Museum. And seeing all his work and inventions, you understand why he is considered one of the most diversely talented individuals ever to have lived.

PARKA BY ZARA




I NEVER THOUGHT I’D BE ONE TO WEAR A PARKA, NOT THAT IT’S UGLY OR ANYTHING, I JUST THINK IT’S NOT MY STYLE. I’M MORE OF A LONG COAT KINDA GIRL AND I THINK A PARKA IS MORE ON THE SPORTY SIDE. BUT I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS PARTICULAR ONE FROM ZARA AS SOON AS I SPOTTED IT ON THEIR WEBSITE. I THINK IT’S THE COLOR THAT FIRST DREW ME , AS YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED, KAKHI IS STILL PRETTY MUCH RULING THIS SEASON. THE FAUX FUR AND THE FACT THAT’S IT’S WATER RESISTANT ARE A PLUS. I GOT IT WHEN I WAS IN PARIS LAST MONTH AND IT CAME IN HANDY SINCE IT RAINED MOST OF MY STAY THERE. I WOULD JUST WEAR A LITTLE SWEATER UNDERNEATH, ZIP IT UP AND BRAVE THE RAIN!
DETAILS:
PARKA, JEANS, SWEATER – ZARA

BAG – LOUIS VUITTON SPEEDY BANDOULIÈRE 30

SWEATER WEATHER

SWEATER SEASON IS FINALLY ON!
I’M ABSOLUTELY AMAZED BY ALL THE KNITS/SWEATERS THAT ZARA CAME UP SWITH THIS SEASON. AND I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE BODY-CON SWEATERS, BUT THE CRAZY BIG OLD ONES  THAT YOU CAN THROW OVER A PAIR OF LEGGINGS OR DISTRESSED JEANS, OR SIMPLY WEAR THEM AS A DRESS WITH A PAIR OF KNEE-HIGH BOOTS OR COMFY SNEAKERS. THE OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS! I ALSO GOT THIS SWEATER IN A LIGHT GRAY AND I’M PROBABLY GONNA GET IT IN ANOTHER COLOR. YES I’M THAT OBSESSED!




DETAILS:
SWEATER/ JEANS – ZARA
SNEAKERS – ADIDAS
SUNGLASSES – D&G

BAZZ'ART LOUNGE MARRAKECH REVIEW

BAZZ'ART LOUNGE MARRAKECH
UN AUTRE DE MES CAFÉ/RESTAURANT PRÉFÉRÉS. SITUÉ EN PLEIN COEUR DE L'HIVERNAGE, EN FACE DU SOFITEL, IL EST IDÉAL POUR TOUTES LES OCCASIONS: PETIT DÉJEUNER, BRUNCH, DÉJEUNER.. 



LE CADRE EST TRÈS AGRÉABLE ET REPOSANT (ÇA CHANGE DE L'EXTRABLATT ET CO), LA DÉCO EST IMPECCABLE ET LA TERRASSE EST PARFAITE SURTOUT POUR PRENDRE SON BRUNCH LE MATIN. LES PLATS SONT BONS, UN PEU CHERS CERTES MAIS CORRECTS DANS L'ENSEMBLE.
