As you elbow your way through the summertime crowds around the Trevi Fountain, you’ll find it hard to believe that this little piazza was nearly always deserted before the film Three Coins in the Fountain brought the stampede of tour buses. Today this newly restored gem is a must on everybody’s itinerary.
Supplied by water from the Acqua Vergine aqueduct and a triumph of the baroque style, it was based on the design of Nicolo Salvi and was completed in 1762. The design centers on the triumphant figure of Neptunus Rex, standing on a shell chariot drawn by winged steeds and led by a pair of tritons. Two allegorical figures in the side niches represent good health and fertility.
On the southwestern corner of the piazza is a somber SS. Vincenzo e Anastasio, with a strange claim to fame. Within it survive the hearts and intestines of several centuries of popes. According to legend, the church was built on the site of a spring that burst from the earth after the beheading of St. Paul; the spring is one of the three sites where his head is said to have bounced off the ground.
Lets Take a trip to Vatican City. The City within a city.The home of the Pope Benedict XVI. This is a truly wonderful place to visit. The condition of the sculptures are in really good condition. When we went there was hundreds of people gathered in the center just admiring the area. But on Sundays when the the pope does his speech. the place it full.
Wow this a great prospective of the the Eiffel tower. Out of all the constructions in France this has got to be one of the best. If you ever get the chance to go there you really should. Also if you are thing of relocating you really should get family and friend over to France to see it.
The queues are pretty bad but well worth the wait. and the shop is expensive but at least you can say you have brought a souvenir from the Eiffel tower.

Pearson home moving in Lichfield. Lichfield is a small village in the Staffordshire. It very similar to walking around stratford upon Avon. The birthplace of William Shakespeare. There is a bit of history around there but it has got an impressive cathedral. On a nice summers day it is quite a impressive sight.
If you travel on a Sunday you will find more free parking spaces. and it tends to be a little bit quieter on a Sunday.
Also a good placer to eat is the Bowling green which is located in the middle of a roundabout which is fun to drive around because you cant find the entrance.
I think this is a great picture of the Colosseum . I may have mentioned before that the Colosseum is a good place to visit in Rome.If you are going on holiday or moving over there. You should defo visit it. and the surround landmarks there.
Lets take a visit to the states, We are heading to towards San Fransico. I have participial fond of the golden gate bridge. It a true engineering accomplished.
It is over 1900 meter long and 230 meters height.
The construction took place on January 5, 1933 and was finished April 19, 1937.
You only pay to use the toll road when you are heading south.
Thats Pearson fact of the day.
