A week end with... Madonna in Rome

Last week end was a very excited one: Katia and I went to Rome to see Madonna’s concert Sticky & Sweet Tour 2008. She was one of my idols when I was a teenager. This was the only chance to see her in Italy, so I took the opportunity.
So we arrived in Rome and we went to our B&B near the Termini station which not only was very close to everything but also very nice. After the check in we immediately went to Piazza di Spagna (Spanish steps) area. A walk trough Via Condotti to do window shopping and then we had a coffee at the famous Caffé Greco, luxury and historical café of Rome. Coffee was good, the waiters not at all. Quite nasty!
Then in the campo dei Fiori area we had a happy hour at a place called SABY’s: good cocktails for just € 4,00 accompanied with a dish of mixed bruschette, an aperitif snack with just four Euros, not bad!
After two mojitos we decided to go to the Stadio Olimpico. The impact with the stadium was very strong: there were already a lot of people, some of these people slept the night before with their tents outside the stadium to be able to be the first to enter and go under the massive stage.

We reached the first half of the grass: it was impossible to go any further… We sat beside a chubby girl dressed as a sadomasochist Madonna’s lookalike, she was funny, a character, then some Spanish boys, some couples, everyone was very calm.

Then punctual at 9,15 pm we started to hear the TIC TAC (4 minutes) and after along prelude, there she was. Madonna sat on a throne completely dressed in a very sexy kind of lingerie: she dances (even with Britney Spears), she sang, she played also a guitar, she dances alone and with amazing dancers. Pure energy at 50 years old! She teased the dancers; and she told something also to the Pope while introducing one of her hit of the 80ties, Like a Virgin. She sang the entire new album with a lot of old songs. At 11,15 pm she said goodbye to Rome and left the audience with pure adrenaline. After the concert we came back to our B&B exhausted but very happy to have seen an icon of nowadays.
The following day we woke up and we decided to go to Porta Portuense where there is one of the quaintest markets of Rome. The market offers everything from antiques to vintage clothing, from various knick-knacks to food. We also both something; then a quick stop in the B&B to take few photos with the owner of the B&B, Onorina and then back on the train to Florence.
