アイルラン留学Vol.20〜イタリア旅行 ローマ編~

さてさて。イタリア旅行もいよいよ大詰め。最後にたどり着いた街はローマです。

 

ローマはご存知のとおり、

 

遺跡の街。

 

本当に、

 

街を歩けば遺跡にあたる。

いや、言いすぎかもしれませんが、街中をふらふらーっと散策してると、簡単に遺跡に遭遇するのです。しかもそれが、街のど真ん中に普通に残っているので驚きます。加えて、かの有名な映画「ローマの休日」で映し出されていた景色ももちろんそのまま残っていたりして。歴史的観点からも、文化的観点からも、いろんな意味で興味深い街でした。

 

当然のことながら、炎天下に負けじと有名な観光地を廻りまくる私たち。その中でも圧倒されたのはコロッセオ。実際に目にしたその姿、想像を超える規模でした。その収容力のみならず、効率性も考えられた実用的な構造、その当時にすでにそこまで考えて作られていたなんて、その事実にただただ驚きでした。

バチカンでは、その荘厳さと迫力に息をのみ。教会内部はピンと張り詰める空気感、背筋が伸びる思いでした。屋上ではローマ市街を一望できて、うわーってなって。それまた感動的な風景でした。

トレヴィの泉では、背中越しにコインを1枚投げ入れるとまたローマに帰ってこられるということで、願いを込めつつコインを投げて。…ちなみに、2枚を投げ入れると大切な人と永遠に一緒に居られると言われ、3枚を投げ入れると離婚できる、のだそうです。両親と来た場合は、コインの枚数に注意しておきましょう(笑)。

真実の口では、口の中に手をいれる、お決まりのポーズで記念撮影。みんな写真撮影のために行列を作っていましたが、やっぱり観光客、みんな口に手を入れてました(笑)。

もちろんスペイン広場にも行って。そこでジェラートを食べるのは今では禁止されているので、広場を離れてからジェラート食べに行きました(笑)。

 

ところで、ローマに限らずイタリアの街を歩いていて、街頭に設置された時計をいくつか見かけたのですが。

 

どれ1つ、合ってないわ。。

 

唯一マトモだった時計は駅の時計くらい?いや、それも10分くらい遅れてたりとかあったなぁ。そもそも、電車自体遅れるのが普通の国だもんね。おかげでヴェニスのときは助かったけどさ。。そもそも、イタリア人と待ち合わせすると、1、2時間の遅刻は当たり前のことだったし。日本の時間に対する正確さ、それは世界一かも。

 

そんなことも思いつつ、憧れのイタリアを生まれて初めて自分の目で見て、肌で感じて、その歴史や文化を味わって。やっぱりとても興味深く、素晴らしい国だなぁ、と心底思いました。

語学学校で出会ったいろいろなイタリア人が、「イタリアが一番だ!」とよく豪語してたのですが、そう言いたくなるのもわかる気がしました。私の中で、一度ならず、何度でも訪れたくなる国の1つとなりました。友達もいるしね!絶対また行きたーい!!

 

 

写真1枚目:コロッセオの内側。名称未設定地下の作りまでしっかり見学してきました。人の大きさを見てわかると思いますが、本当にびっくりするくらいの規模!!

 

 

写真2枚目:トレヴィの泉。1天気も良かったし、美しかったなぁ。このときコインを背中越しに1枚、投げ入れてたんですけど、この数年後、本当にまたローマに行ってました(笑)。

 

写真3枚目:外から見たバチカン。3ちょっとピンボケですが…。夕暮れどき、柔らかい明かりでのライトアップがまたとても綺麗でした。
