 +<WRAP center justify 100%>
 +Of course, I could have choosen not to remember more than the 10 days of rain I experienced... But I was conscient of that risk before to leave (november is not august), and I've seen too many beautiful things to complain.
 +
 +You'll certainly wonder why I say it rained so much, when the weather seems to be so nice on my pictures. I can explain it. First off all, I had the chance to enjoy great sunny intervals between gusts of rain. Secondly, please remember that it (almost) never rains inside chruchs and museums. And, finally, ... I'm talented !
 +
 +Enjoy the trip!

 +
 +  * So hard to wake-up at 3 a.m.. Even to go on holidays!
 +  * Lyon St Exupéry'​s Terminal 3 looks like EasyJet : definitely Low Cost!
 +  * "<​i>​Dove la stazione per il treno Roma-Vitterbo ?"</​i>,​ were the first italian words of my trip.
 +  * Of course, I paid attention to use my hands while speaking.
 +  * I had my ticket checked in the subway (Ep. I).
 +  * I met an italian guy that did not understand how and why, I could go on holidays alone, in november, with a tent and a heavy bag...
 +  * "<​i>​Mammamia!</​i>",​ he was saying again and again.
 +  * Because of the rain, I visited The National Roman Museum.

 +
 +  * I had my ticket checked in the subway (Ep. II).
 +  * Tanks to the <​i>​Roma Pass</​i>,​ I skept the line to enter the Coliseum.
 +  * It worth it, despite of the crowd.
 +  * "<​i>​My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.</​i>"​
 +  * I would have loved to see a true gladiators'​ fight.
 +  * After the Coliseum, time to visit the Palatin and the Roman Forum...
 +  * ... under the rain for more fun!
 +  * Ancient romans were the kings of columns.
 +  * But, today'​s,​ certainly not the kings of information'​s panels!
 +  * A sunny interval allow me to spent some hours near the Pantheon.
 +  * 2000 years... Unbelievable!!!
 +  * Too much for my eyes...
 +  * ... but also for my EOS 7D, that crashed, and crashed, and crashed again...

 +
 +  * I had my ticket checked in the subway (Ep. II).
 +  * To escape the rain, I've visited churchs and basilicas.
 +  * So impressive and luxurious!
 +  * After the rain, a blue sky to enjoy a wonderfull sunset.
 +  * Time for my Canon 70-200 to show what it is capable of...
 +  * Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! That's the difference between Canon L series and normal series!!!

 +
 +  * Traveling in Italian trains with Italian people is funny, but definitely not restful!
 +  * Piles of trash and dozens of beggars... The first impression of Naples wasn't very pleasant...
 +  * The second neither: dark alleys, noisy people, a dramatic lack of respect for everything and everyone...
 +  * I couldn'​t stay longer.
 +  * Luckily, the campsite was far away from this.
 +  * A touch of wind and sun to dry my tent...
 +  * ... And I felt asleep a few meters from Pompei ruins.

 +  * Such a special and rare moment in life...
 +  * Pompei is more than wonderfull...
 +  * ... and looks still alive!

 +
 +  * After Pompei, some minutes alone in Herculaneum.
 +  * Beautiful, but not as moving as Pompei.
 +  * I decided then to give Naples another chance to convince me...
 +  * ... But I still was chocked by the irrespectuous way of life of its inhabitants...
 +  * I got over this disappointment with a succulent real napolitain pizza.
 +  * In the Late Dark Deep of the Night, I experimented what must be the second most terrifying thunderstorm of my life (after Oslo's one)...

 +  * The tent and associated stuffs were dramatically wet after this strong thunderstorm. How to get it dry?
 +  * My new english friend gave me the solution: drying in the toilets with a portable heater!!! LOL
 +  * Some pictures in the Goodies page.
 +  * Last time in Naples for a last pizza.
 +  * Gino Sorbillo, one of the best.

 +  * Vatican. State in the State.
 +  * I didn't see the Pope.
 +  * I didn't see Jesus neither.
 +  * Neverthelss,​ I saw the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter'​s Basilica.
 +  * St. Peter'​s is more than huge... but strangely doesn'​t seem so when inside.
 +  * The Vatican State has its own post service.
 +  * The beautiful sun convinced me to visit Caracalla'​s terms.
 +  * I got there, entered the site...
 +  * ... And, of course, it began to rain!

 +
 +  * Cold morning rain...
 +  * I took the way to St. Paul's Outside the Walls Basilica.
 +  * Means I've visited the four most important Basilicas of Rome.
 +  * The sun came back.
 +  * Allowing me to spent good time in Trastevere'​s streets.
 +  * Red, yellow, ochre.
 +  * Then in the Centro Storico.
 +  * Piazza Navona, Pantheon, ...
 +  * And, of course, the Trevi foutain, where I threw two coins. One to fulfil my wishes, and the second to be sure I'll be back to Rome one day.
 +  * Yet another nice sunset on Roman ruins!

 +  * First (and single) day <​u>​WITHOUT RAIN</​u>​ of the trip...
 +  * ... and also LAST day of the trip!
 +  * I'd like to say Galeria Borghese is wonderfull.
 +  * But... honestly I can't!
 +  * First of all, because classical painting is... just boring!
 +  * And, secondly, because the way they exhibit paintings is absolutely scandalous!
 +  * Luckily, thanks to Bernin'​s sculptures, the catastrophe was less catastrophic.
 +  * A last walk in the Centre Storico, the place I prefer in Rome.
 +  * Then, went to the Youth Hostel.
