National Pasta Day 2020 is on Saturday, October 17, 2020: Help! I am joining the National Guard and need to prepare!?


Saturday, October 17, 2020 is National Pasta Day 2020.

Help! I am joining the National Guard and need to prepare!?

Just start running a few miles every other day and you'll be fine. Push ups. Start eating pasta and drinking weight gain shakes. Potato's are good for gaining weight. Weight training would be good for you. I bet the trainers at the gym will help you and give you advise.

Spending 8 days in Venice and Rome, what places should I sightsee ?

Spending 8 days in Venice and Rome, what places should I sightsee ?

Actually, you can't see all of Venice in a day, but you can cover quite a bit of it. It depends on how many places you're interested in going into and seeing the exhibits. If you want to go into St. Mark's, the Doge's Palace, the Correr museum, the Accademia, Palazzo Grassi and the many other palazzos where there are exhibits, the Guggenheim, Salute and other churches, see Murano and Burano, ..., you could stay busy for a few days. The Biennale is going on this year in Venice, I've been both of the past two weekends and haven't seen all of that even without going to the other tourist destinations. The main areas are in the Giardino and Arsenale areas, but there are exhibits set up all over the city. You could also take a day trip to Verona, Padova or Treviso on the train from Venice. Rome certainly is bigger and has a lot to see and do though.

With 5 days in Rome, you can cover a lot. There are a huge number of guide books that cover the highlights. Certainly, you should see the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill area, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, the fountains. I like the Santa Maria Sopra Minerva church which is near the Pantheon (the oblisk with the elephant is in front of it). San Pietro in Vincoli is also interesting. There's a very impressive Michelangelo sculpture and you can see the chains in which was held when in Jerusalem and in the prison in Rome.

There are a lot of lesser visited places in Rome that might interest you:

Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini which is pretty interesting - especially the crypt: ...

Other places that could be possibilities include: the Museum of the Souls of Purgatory ...

The view through the keyhole at the Knights of Malta in Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta ... Take Via di Santa Sabina from Circus Maximus to get there.

Go see the Pyramid: ...

The National Pasta Museum:

With 5 days, you should have time for a day trip from Rome as well. Florence is an easy trip on the fast trains. Other interesting spots could be Tivoli (see the Villa d'Este and Villa Adriana), Orvieto, or Antica Ostia and the beach.
