Finally went through all of our photos from our trip to Rome. We had the most AMAZING time and wanted to share some of what we did for those that might be interested in traveling to Italy one day. Let me tell you that four and half days is enough to see everything you want to see, but not enough to soak in the amazing culture. So, if you have the chance to stay at least a week, I would highly recommend taking that extra time. Here are some of our favorite highlights from the trip:
Fontana Di Trevi: the Trevi Fountain was the very first thing on my list of things to see in Rome (this is all due to my love of my childhood favorite, The Lizzie McGuire Movie) This was a must see, and is definitely best to go early in the morning before it gets crowded. We arrived to the fountain around 8am and there was only two or three people there with us which was great!
Piazza Navona: This adorable piazza was filled with restaurants lining the streets, live music, lots of people dancing, and gelato shops. It was one of my favorite parts of the whole city. You could sit for hours and people watch at either a restaurant sitting outside, or at the fountains in the center of the street.
Renting a Scooter and Trastevere: There’s nothing like renting a scooter to get around Rome. We loved how easy it was to drive around and see things faster. One of our favorite areas we drove through and eating at was Trastevere, Rome’s most fun and upbeat neighborhood. All of the streets are cobblestone, the restaurants and bars are tucked around every corner, and live music and loads of people hang outside all the way through the evenings. It was in this neighborhood we had some of our best meals and lively experiences, definitely a great place to stay and a must to see!
Colosseo: Of course, what’s Rome without seeing the Colosseum? This was definitely worth seeing. We bought our tickets in advance so we could skip the lines which was wonderful. If you are a history lover, this is absolutely a MUST!
We saw so many other fountains, climbed so many steps, and ate at so many AMAZING restaurants. You really can’t go wrong when in Italy. Rome, you have my heart, and I can’t wait until the day I can be there again.
Until next time,
