Rome, Italy

Thursday, October 11, 2018

For today’s post, I’m taking you back to my few days that I spent in Rome in April. My family came to visit me and flew into Rome, so I took a train from Florence to meet them there. There is a train station in the airport that they flew into, so I met them right when they got there! The hotel wasn’t ready yet, so we took a tour of the colosseum in the mean time. I didn’t get any great pictures there because I had literally woken up 15 minutes before I had to be at the train station. We went to the hotel to rest because my family had a very long flight. That night, we went out to dinner at a place our hotel recommended and then took a taxi to the Trevi Fountain. We got gelato at a place across from the Trevi and the Bailey’s gelato was delicious.

The next morning we woke up early because we had a tour of the Vatican. I had no idea that Vatican City is technically its own country! The tour was long, but what we saw was very cool. I thought that the Sistine Chapel was amazing and at the end of the tour we went into the basement where they keep all of the deceased priests. We went to the Trevi Fountain again after that and got lunch around there. My mom and I went to the Spanish steps after that and it was really pretty.

We went out to dinner that night and out for drinks after that. Bellini's and rossini’s were my favorite drinks in Italy and the ones there were so good! We got espresso martinis at a wine bar after dinner, which are surprisingly very hard to find in Italy. The next morning we had an early train ride back to Florence because I had class. Rome was definitely a lot different than Florence because of its size. In Florence, I walk everywhere but it seems impossible in Rome. Anywhere that me and my family went we took a taxi and they were easily accessible. In Florence, I always had to call for a taxi if I was going somewhere far like the airport. My last day in Florence, I had reserved a taxi the day before for my ride to the airport, and it was still an hour and a half late! I liked my weekend in Rome a lot, but I am still happy I chose Florence to be home.
