Wandering Around Rome


One of my goals for 2015 was to travel more, so last weekend my sister & I headed off to Rome for a long weekend. This was the first time I'd really planned a trip before, and it all went so smoothly. We had so much fun - wandering around the streets of Rome & of course eating plenty of food! 

The hotel we stayed at was perfect, right near the main train and bus station. We had bought tickets for a sightseeing bus for two days, but the majority of the time we decided to walk instead.

Within 3 days we packed in so much stuff. We had a tour of the Colosseum, walked along the Tiber River, saw St. Peter's Basilica, climbed right to the top of Castel Sant'Angelo and saw the Trevi fountain & the Spanish Steps. And still in between those things we managed to wander the little streets, fit in a spot of makeup shopping (Kiko!), eat the best pizza ever and drink cocktails almost the size of my head. All in all, it was the perfect city break. I couldn't have asked for a better holiday!

  2. I wish I could just hop on a plane and travel somewhere in Europe for a long weekend! Sadly, I live in the USA and really have to plan a long vacation to be able to that. Someday though! :)
