Lonely Planet - Italy update: Milano Bergamo - Roma

left NCL around 2130hours after an hour delayed and landed 10 minutes after midnight in bergamo, milano. took the last airport shuttle and reached milano termini around 0200hours and the central station was closed until 0400hours...while waiting outside the main entrance, i witnessed a group of local people, the polizia and immigrants had a little argument...well, drunk people...a cold morning and the central station looks so grand with its architecture...then around 0350hours, the door opened and i went straight away to the ticket machine to get the first train to rome...i have to pay 51 euro for a single trip and it took me 5 hours to reach roma termini...a little bit confusing with the signs...and at last i managed to locate the tourist information centre...well, have to bear with italian style over here...hehehehe...got the map of rome and i purchased the day ticket for unlimited travelling until midnight which cost me 4 euro...so i can take tram, metro or bus ride around rome...then, i straight away went to my accomodation near san givanno area...unluckily, there was no one answered the door...actually, i booked the arrival time at 3pm...so i could not blame the hotel, i decided to have an italian lunch...hhhmmmm...guess what...i had pizza with anchovice...yummy but salty...hehehehee...but it was really yummy...after that, i went to colosseo ( hope i get it right the word in italian)...just popped out from the metro station...whoah! just in front of my eyes...colosseu! s, took some pics and and went around it...arrrghhh...quite big complex of ruins...will visit again tonight after settling my accomodation...but will have to go again tomorrow morning...so, i went back to san givanno and luckily the caretaker was there...but i have to change the location and with better room...ensuite...and the caretaker too so kind telling me where to go and so on...the new place actually an apartment cum office...with all great facilities...actually. i am using the free internet in my room...ok, will continue and the pics have to wait until i come back to newcastle...ciao!
