Holiday 2007...9th part

This is the last entry of our summer holiday... One week after our arriving to Terni my aunt and cousin (Judit and Antonia) drove down to visit us. Together we went to visit Narni. Narni is a small mideval town next to Terni - Emanuel, Giacomo and Samuele were born in Narni! Although many people don't know, this small town inspired C. S. Lewis to write his famous book: The Chronicles of Narnia. Tha latin name of Narni is Narnia, and what is the symbol of the city? The lion... Some pictures:

The laws were read from here

Three ladies and a prince

We also went to see the dolphins in Rome. The Zoomarine is open all year around, and is a very nice facility for the various attractions. Since it was summertime, it was very crowded and we could see only the dolphins and the parrots.

The 15th of August is a holiday in Italy, and by now a tradition in our family that from the heat we escape to the nearby mountain on 1000 m high. The family includes around 20 people from the part of Emanuel's father. We all bring our homemade food for lunch and dinner and we share it with each other...

Of course we couldn't miss going to Rome. I am not sure how many kilometers we walked, but one thing I am sure of: at the end of the day we couldn't feel our feet any more...
