This past weekend, while many people went to Vienna, I headed down to re-visit my favorite city, Roma! Luckily, it was easy to convince Courtney to join me, so the two of us spent a lovely 4 days and three nights in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
On thursday we flew in, landing around three and making our way to the city and eventually our apartment by seven or so. After a long day of travel and heat, we opted for a local meal in the part of town we were staying–Trastevere. This part of town is filled with young locals, street performers, and countless resturants, bars, and cafes. Our meal was delicious, as expected, and we headed to bed in preparation for a full day ahead.
A full day, indeed. Starting with breakfast at a small cafe, consisting of a cappuccino and pastry (chocolate filled, of course), we then headed to our first stop, which is probably the city’s most iconic–The Colosseum. As mentioned, I have been to Rome before, but it was about 4 years ago. Seeing everything for the second time was just as amazing. Everything was even more beautiful than I remembered. The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and Piazza Navona were our big stops for the day, but even the walk through the city to get to each place was filled with sites that you can’t see anywhere else.
The entire trip was wonderful, despite being fairly short. I know Rome will always be a city I look forward to revisiting, because it really is beautiful in every sense. The best part of it all is even though we had to leave Rome, we are still in Prague for two more weeks! Theres a lot more to do here and I’m looking forward to everything else there is to discover.
Happy travels, everyone!
