I travelled to Rome to soak up the culture and the pasta. Rome is great for a travelling bear like me, who likes his landmarks - the city if full of famous destinations like the Colosseum, Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. It is an ancient city and during the Roman empire was possible the most important city in the world. From the ancient ruins of amazing buildings to the cold, tasty tap water available on every street corner, evidence of this Roman influence is all around, even today. The city itself was hot and busy and seemed to have a huge amount for teddies to do - the pasta was good but the coffee was a bit strong for me... I also had a great time at the Vativan City, which is located within Rome and is home to the Pope. He was the first head of state I have met to date and hope that this will further another ambition of mine - to become the Teddy ambassador to the United Nations - one day....
This is the majestic colosseum. After this photo was taken, that man tried to sell me an umbrella. I explained to him that it wasn't raining and asked him where he was when I was in Edinburgh, but it was a nice thought.
This is me walking around inside the Colosseum. I wondered how I would fare against the gladiators of old and decided I would probably have terrified them. Graawwwwll!
Me sat on the Spanish steps. Spanish steps in Italy? How peculiar. I had to wait a long time to have the steps to myself. Word must have got around about me and my travels as a lot of people would stop and stare at me (some would even point and smile)
I then went to the Trevi fountain. There were many people here but not so many bears. It was so hot that I thought it might have been nice to dip a toe in the fountain...
Me posing again. This time in front of the Pantheon, another famous Roman building.
I wanted to see the Pope. He kindly granted me an audience and he agreed to forge better relations between the Vatican and the Teddies.
