Trip Report "Seaurchin and Seashells Mini Adventures in Italy"

Jump to last reply

We arrived early at LAX for our Swiss flight to Zurich and then on to Roma. Check in was easy and we had a traditional turkey sandwich at the Daily Grill in the Bradley terminal before we went through final security. One lady with two kids pushed past us saying her flight was leaving and she wove all the way through the long line to the front, her kids looked mortified.

Swiss is an accommodating airline, we had nice seats and settled in. I had the idea of putting all of my nesting material: Airborne, No Jet Lag tablets, mints, menthol, Purell, almonds, water in a gallon plastic bag in the seat pocket so it would be consolidated. Great idea!

The lovely attendants brought around chocolates, water, ice cream, my special meal (Hindu vegetarian) and were pleasant all around for the long flight. I played Trivia on my personal screen, I played against other passengers and for a while it got quite competitive! I was in a close personal war with someone on the plane for most of the flight. Good way to pass the time.

I love this pillow fixer that I learned about here on Fodors: It works on the plane and
in the hotel rooms on the hard unforgiving pillows: http://tinyurl.com/2xk955

We had romeshuttlelimousine pick us up and drive us to Via Coronari just off of P. Navona for 35 euro. It is so nice to have someone there with your name on a sign!

At the apartment which we rented from realrome.com we pushed the call button and the owner came down to carry up our luggage. The site had said four flights but it was more like eight with the tall ceilings and stair landings. We had nice leg muscles after a week
of traipsing up and down a few times a day.

I won’t go into the sightseeing, we did the usual things, some that we had seen before and others which were new to us. I will just relate some good, some bad and some unusual experiences and some restaurants and shopping stores.
