Okay, let’s continue to the next part of my Italy… The way to move from the next part is self-driving, and self-driving is much simpler, as long as Google sets the location and keeps driving XD
After wandering around, go to Siena. It takes about an hour to drive from Florence to Siena. After arriving at Siena, you will clearly see that you are about to enter the old city. His city wall is very obvious and complete.
It can be seen that Siena’s scenic spots are very concentrated, and it is not far to walk. You can walk for a whole day in this strong ancient cultural atmosphere.
▼Panoramic view of Field Square, which is a large square in Europe
▼The scenery of the old town of Siena, which is taken from outside the hotel, recommended accommodation Hotel Alma Domus has a very good location, but the breakfast is very ordinary
▼Black and white are the symbols of Siena’s main church, and the ground has very delicate marble depictions
▼ Amazing ceiling
I really like the Siena Siena Cathedral (Duomo di Siena). It was originally planned to be the largest church in Italy. Later, the project was stopped due to the Black Death. I think that because there are fewer tourists, I can appreciate every detail more carefully. Indulging in its beauty, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is very spectacular but there are too many tourists.
Cinque Terre Cinque Terre
Because we were driving by ourselves, we parked the car in the underground parking lot of La spezia train station, put all the luggage in the car, packed a small luggage to the Cinque Terre (is it super bold, the luggage came back the next day intact and the window was not broken, maybe it was also Because I have a kind heart, I won’t encounter any bad things XD)
Having said that, I must make a special suggestion, if you don’t have enough time, you really don’t have to come to this place . I specially made a comparison picture (taken by a mobile phone), one is the original picture and the other is after my own PS coloring. Guest officials, please check the difference by yourself. Before you come, you can see that the Internet is full of articles It was written that Cinque Terre, a fairyland that must be visited once in a lifetime, went to the scene and I just felt, huh? that’s it? ? I thought I went to the wrong place, so I searched online, and the color of the photos on the Internet must be too big! I really think the colorful island of Venice is more colorful than here XD
▼This is Monterosso, the fifth village (well…it is Kenting
▼This is Vernazza , the fourth village
▼This is the second village, Manarola, where most people come to take pictures (Here is another comparison picture, I told my friends that Jiufen is more beautiful than here XD ▼This is the first village, Riomaggiore (This is the view from the window of my room, I really think it is much better than the second village.
Appartamenti e camere Edi is recommended for accommodation . If you really still want to visit the Cinque Terre, I would recommend you to stay near the beach in Riomaggiore, a village with a very nice view.
This is me walking down from the small road next to the accommodation, climbing the wave breaking block to the opposite side to take the whole panorama. I really didn’t retouch this picture. Is it better than the second village Manarola’s major IG net beauty and bloggers? The cheating picture after the picture is much better XD
Due to the geographical location of Cinque Terre, you need to go to La spezia train station first and then transfer to the small train to Cinque Terre. Whether you come from Pisa or Firenze, you basically need to go through several transfers to La spezia The train station, because La spezia is a small station (just like you take the Ziqiang to Taipei first and then take the tram to Ruifang). Searching on the Internet, most independent tourists take a day trip from other cities to Cinque Terre , The itinerary is very fast and I have to get up early. It’s really tiring. If I want to go up the mountain and go to the sea just to get to Cinque Terre, I really don’t think it’s necessary. I’ve been telling my friends that this is Hualien along the way~~
▼Come to a picture of Hualien when you take the train to the Cinque Terre
During the two days and one night stay in the Cinque Terre, my friends and I visited five fishing villages in a very short day, and stayed in each village for about an hour. We had enough time to even go to the sixth village (because there was really nothing there. It’s easy to take pictures and visit the village, and the village is small), we both agree that the Cinque Terre has been overly beautified, so I decided to sincerely not recommend the Cinque Terre when writing an article hahaha XD
After I got the car from la Spezia train station safe and sound, I drove to Rome for about 5 hours. I chose to drive from Rmini because there was nothing between Rimini to Siena, Siena to Cinque Terre, and Cinque Terre to Roma. Direct train, just from Cinque Terre to Rome, you have to change trains at least 3 times.
It took too long to change there with luggage and wait for the car, so I decided to rent a car more flexible and free. If you can drive a manual car, renting a car in Europe is really cheap (less than NT$1,000 a day), because It is a little more expensive for me to rent an automatic car, but it saves me from dragging luggage and waiting for a car to change cars to catch the train.
As soon as I arrived in Rome, I was amazed by the city. I really like the streets of Rome at night, and it is not dangerous at all. There are police everywhere. I am a woman who walks on the road at 8 or 9 o’clock in the evening. I don’t feel anything at all. There is a dangerous and tense atmosphere, the streets are full of the history of the Roman Empire, and the restaurants in the alleys have a dinner atmosphere of laughing and laughing, and a glass of wine, which makes you involuntarily slow down and appreciate this magical place. I still remember the feeling of walking alone on the street at that time.

▼On the way to Piazza Venezia ▼Meet a handsome guy protesting? Or propaganda? ▼On the way to the Colosseum, beside the main road is the remains of the Roman Forum, it is so beautiful and amazing ▼The upper left corner of the photo is the Colosseum
▼The inside is actually quite boring, so I had to sit on the stairs and imagine the plot of the movie of the ghost warrior
▼Super many people couldn’t find a space to take pictures, so they had to get stuck and took the first half of the panorama
One day I stayed in Rome, I went to Pompeii. I booked it with Klook . I chose the hotel pick-up, but I will only pick you up at the hotel when I go. There is no return trip. I will give you 80 points for the itinerary, and I will take you at noon Go to a restaurant to eat Pizza, and head to Pompeii after lunch. I personally feel that the time in Pompeii is not long enough. The tour guide will take it with him while explaining. There is not enough time to take pictures and look at every corner.
▼Beautiful and sad Pompeii
▼The dog who was too late to escape
▼Residents who are too late to escape

▼ This is an accommodation in Rome. It takes less than 5 minutes to walk to the Spanish Steps, and it is not far from other attractions. The location is very good. I recommend staying at LM Suites Spagna
▼ I am planning to leave from Rome Airport on the last day. The tax refund procedures are very chaotic. I have not completed the refund at the airport three hours earlier. I will write a tax refund article another day (if I have time)
I finally finished writing my travel notes in Italy, obviously I wanted to make a long story short, who knew that writing one would turn into two articles, and organizing travel notes is also quite tiring XD
