Oh, Beauty!

Don't know where to pass next month with great pleasure not only for body but to gift the greatest joy to your eyes? I'll tell you the place.

Vietnam; Ho Shi Min and Njachag.
There you will find not beaches, restaurants, nature, historical places or what else from the classical tourist's kit. You will find all the most beautiful girls of the globe there. "Miss Universe 2008", the 57-th show, where on 14 Gune you will have the possibility to see aboout 80 of the girls.

To have something to do in the time when they wait for the final play, the girls exhibit national costumes. I, sincerely, did not understand if those are really national costumes but I think it was beautiful to see them. You can see the photoreportage clicking Here and than on the thumbnails under the great photo.

Temple of Serapis In Pozzuoli

The second place of my interest in Pozzuoli was the Temple of Serapis. I was very impressed by this excavation because you can see here very clearly how the level of the sea changes here. But I have to begin from amphitheater. Because I told you last time about it.

I did not know before that this town is situated on the mountainside. The railway station is in the high part and I had to go down about 10-15 minutes to reach the other railway that went in the direction where was our ritrit.

The first time I lose about an hour to find the right way to do and walked around these streets with the sea in front of me. But it was not very nice walk. Because... See the next photo.


Finally I found the temple and made the photo fron the auto-bridge. If you look with attention, you can see me too there.

Click on the next photo and look at the great columns. You see they are "eated" by the sea organisms. It was time when they were under the level of the sea. But first they were in a high place of the greek town. This town is possible to see if you take a boat.

This temple was not a temple but a market- or slaughter- place. And you see one of the rooms on the next photo.

Finally here you can see that the sea is about 100 meters far from this place today.

Earning Money With Internet

Effettua la registrazione a PayPal e inizia ad accettare pagamenti tramite carta di credito immediatamente.

I write ot so often about money making possibilities now and nobody remembers today that this blog began with many posts about it. First of all, because those I personally passed through were scams. I was new in informatica, in internet, I had not friends interested in this things and there was nobody who could tell me something about this business. So, passed these little troubles and tragedies, I wanted to tell my experience to others that are so as I am.

Today I'm interested to build my own serious business that could give me indipendance, but I think that little sources of money are always comfortable and if they are many, these sources, they can give us even interesting adds. That is why I accept if my friends give me this possibilities.

Time ago if you was a member of an affiliate program, you had to cover your referral link because those who is not new in this searches are very clever. They did not sign up with your referral link but went directly to the "mother"-site and you remained without your honest % from the money distributed from the site. The person that did it, did nothing good for himself, he/she did that the site owner could take this coin-percent in own pocket.

Fortunatelly today the technology made this step forvard and there are possibilities to avoid this problem. But the best possibility is that to partecipate on the paid program you HAVE TO BE "presented" by an other person. So you HAVE TO TURN to the person where you found the link and you have to use the referral link. It's really great. So, you don't need lose time to arrive to the page that says you: Now insert the link of the friend that told you about this possibility. You can directly click MY referral link.

Today I want to present you 2 new programs that give you possibility to earn some coins more -your "pizza money", at place to ask everybody who enters your blog to give you some coins for coffee.

First is a search engine for your browser at base of Yahoo! Works actually with IE and FF. You make your searches with this SE and they devide their money with you. Payment methods are PayPal, UK Bank Transfer, International Bank Transfer (IBAN). I tryed a similar program with Agloco (and others), but was never paid by it. Sincerely I don't know if there is somebody more fortunate as me, but I read a communication that they were not successful. I don't know about this program, seems that it counts my searches. Well, will see. Why do it gratis with other SE-s if I can have some coins. I wanted to try it.
Here is MY REFERRAL LINK

The other program I joined latelly is ZenZuu.com. It's a new social network that is actually in Beta and promises to divide 80% of advertising income between active users, that means "to logs in his/her “REP” account a minimum of 30 times a month. These log ins can be done once a day, several times a day, or within one hour". They will open a Marketplace where you can sell your goods too. Seems interesting. There are members that offer you other programs to work with. So, it can be interesting for you too. And the most interesting is that you can't lose your referrals because they need you.

Roman Amphitheaters In Campania/Italia

The most known Amphitheater is logically Colosseum in Rome. It's the largest ever built in Empire and belongs to the greatest architectural works of Romans.

But it's not the last. Third largest and better conserved in time is the amphitheater of Pozzuoli (photo from Wikipedia). This one was used for sea-battles too.

Here, in Campania there is the second large amphitheater too, that of Capua, a town situated not so far from Pozzuoli and Naples (not more than 20 km, I think). In Nocera and Pompei there are amphitheaters too.

Well, that of Nocera was built after the scuffle in Pompei, so it has to be built between 60 and 65 aC. Archeologists think it has to be LARGER as those of Capua. And because I just told you that the amphitheater of Capua was second large in the world, so imagin the importance of Nuceria Constantia of Roman times. They say, there was an other in Salerno too, but today it's difficult to find it.

Now if you want to think about this quantity of enormous amphitheaters in a relatively little zone. About 60-70 km from Nocera to Pozzuoli and to Capua. And there is an enormous theater with -as they say- really great acustic in Nocera (it's in the same conditions as Necropoli actually, read: Roman Necropolis Of Nocera Superiore)...

I think that Roman Empire had it's end because they did not work and did not make babies, they passed all the time to make feasts.

The amphitheater of Nocera is actually under earth. I read about projects to begin the excavations, but I'm not sure about it because I did not find the precise date of this "great event".

Here I post some photos of the amphitheater of Pozzuoli that I visited during ritrit. It was closed because of first morning hours when I arrived there and I have only external photos.

If you click on the photo and see the original size, you can imagin better the size of this building. And it's beauty.

Here you see the modern sitting steps. I think it's used for different plays today, so as they do in Pompei. Personally I had not this possibility to assist a performance in ancient amphitheater else, but I think it's a great idea to continue the use of this buildings.

Here you see the internal enormous corridor. I think it was not for visitors. There is possible to see (if you enter inside) the places where there were lifts for animals, rooms for gladiators.

This photo I had to make too light that you can see the down part. In the light of the first morning sun that part was too dark for my camera.

Mausolei Of Gens Cornelia And Gens Lutatia

In these posts we are visiting places of interest for tourists in Nocera Superiore in Province of Salerno:
First part Roman Necropolis Of Nocera Superiore
Second Part Mausoleum of Gens Numisia

In these posts we are visiting the places of interest in Province of Salerno, Italy.
Next part of our trip in the history of Nuceria Constantia demonstrates us the very great importance of this town in the region. It's enough to remember the names of the families who lived there in that period.

On the photo here you see mausoleum of gens Cornelia. Follow my advise, click on the photo and see it in the original size to have right impression. Now imagine that on the right and on the left ledge there are statues of lying lions that protect peace of the persons buried there. And there is the upper part of this building with the cupola.

Well, you have to know that gens Cornelia was one of the 100 original families of Rome. This is an other monument remembering us about the most important families of Rome.
Gens Lutatia was a family of plebeian origins, but in 242 bC one of it's members, Gaius Lutatius Catulus, won Carthaginian fleet and later they had other heroes, so in the I centurty bC this family was very important.

This mausoleum was built to bury "a 17-years old boy of noble origins that had splendid future for him and was more beautiful as a god, but the goddesses of freshwater, Naiads, took him with them".
This other monument I did not know what family belongs to . It seems it has to be built after the eruption of 79 dC. There is not so much information about other parts of Necropolis. This monument was burried to preserve it's down part, I think.

The down part of the street was filled up with ashes by the eruption of Vesuvio and floods. The upper part of these monuments was visible and people used stones and statues to create latest burial places.

Mausoleum of Gens Numisia

First part Roman Necropolis Of Nocera Superiore

So, I began to tell you about Necropolis of Pizzone in Nocera Superiore. This second post is about one of the families that lived in that town.

Gens Numisia, so far I found in internet, was an etruscan family. There are their burial places in Pompei (that town ws 2 times more little as Nuceria) and not far from Latina. There is even a sort of vine that has their name. This family had to be very important in Nuceria because they built this enormous mausoleum 12 meters in diameter that was inspired by the mausoleum of Augustus in Rome.
On this photo (down) you see how big it is when you are near it.
We wanted to enter inside the monument and... I was surprized because I could not imagine what I will see inside. Only a very narrow corridor, about 1,5 meter large circular place in center of the building with 8 little niches for cinerary urns and 2 buriing signs in the other end of the corridor.

I did not understand the why of this enormous building. Maybe the archaeologists could not understand it too, because they tryed to open the wall but there is nothing as the wall there.

Roman Necropolis Of Nocera Superiore

I told you before, that the director of our Archaeological Group of Salerno asked me to organize for our members a visit to the Necropolis of Pizzone in Nocera Superiore where I live. The problem with this archaeological excavation is that it's always close. Normally, these places are open by the volunteers of archaeological groups, but the Archeoclub of Nocera Inferiore has not enough members, I think. And there are too many interesting and historically important monuments. So I offered myself to be a guide for the "Open Doors" manifestation and the problem was solved for me.

Unfortunatelly I had only 2 days for preparation before I went to ritrit in Pozzuoli, but I hope I did it good.

Here I want to write some posts about this Necropolis. And the first is about the street where it was built.

Residents of Nuceria Constantia wanted to make special impression on the traveller leaving the town with this Necropolis, I think. They dug 60 meters of the street 3 meters under the country-level. You see the board behind the mausoleums (on the right).

Romans used to bury their deceased around the main roads going out from their towns. These street was very large (10 meters) and divided in 3 parts -it's difficult, but you can see it on the second photo. Near the mausoleums you can see places where the traveller could sit "and meditate about the fate".

We could not see the covering of the street from high, so the first visitors and than I too, we went down and found stones that delimitate boards of the center of roman street. Interesting is that you can not understand how large it is when you look at it from high. Sincerely, I don't know why this street has not the cover of stone blocks. I saw roman streets in different parts of Italy, they were all made from stone blocks. Maybe those were more important streets...

Easy To Book Cheap Hotels All Over The World

Today I wanted to present you a site that can help you to book the best room in a hotel all over the world offering you till 80% discounted prices.

Imagine want to go in Italy. We open "world directory" and click Italy in Europe. Now we have a really great choice between cities, provinces, places of tourist interest and most important informations like airports, conferences, events, train stations and others. I think it's very important information because I had different problems when I looked for train stations to reach some destinations.

So we decide to visit province of Naples in our virtual trip today and want to go to Sorrento. It's the left side peninsula on my photo. First of all it's beautiful little town for those who wants to forget great cities. There are many historical places if you are interested in and beautiful beaches just under the rock where is situated the town. Book your room visiting Sorrento Hotels and relax under the sun of Italy.

It may be that you like extreme emotions in sense of nature and prices, so you have to plan your trip on Capri. It is a rock-island, you can see it on the left of my photo. In times of Roman Empire Tiberio built his palace there. He had his private "pull" in a cavern too. All these you can visit there. I like the cavern where the colour of the water is incredibly azure and you have to lay in the boot to enter inside the cavern. But I like the road to Anacapri that passes in part over the sea too. Choose between Capri Hotels you can find visiting Easytobook.com and enjoy till 80% discounts there.

I understood. You prefere more popular places like Venice. Well, no problem. Visiting Easytobook.com we find Venice Hotels for every pocket. Don't forget to book your room in advance. Believe me, it's really difficult to find cheap hotels when you are in the town. And when you are just there, you have only to think about the beauties of the place and walk, walk and walk.
