On February 13th me and my boyfriend headed to Rome for a city break, we were up bright and early and arrived in Rome around 12pm.
When we arrived we checked into our hotel and quickly headed out to explore. We first headed down to the Piramide and then walked down the river towards the Colosseum and in true Italian style we stopped off for a pizza slice on the way! We were pleasantly surprised by how green Rome was, being used to other European cities resembling concrete jungles it was a very welcome surprise to see lots of parks and green areas.
After exploring the Colosseum and walking down a number of winding streets back to the hotel we had an hours relaxing before heading down the Trevi Fountain area to find some dinner and take in some more of the sights. The Trevi Fountain was by far the most impressive part of the trip for me, it is truly beautiful and so pristine it looks like it was built yesterday! We did the classic coin throw and headed off for dinner.
We couldn’t visit Rome without going to the Vatican city so the next day we headed over to St Peters Basilica to take a look around. After an hour long queue in the sunshine we made it inside and it was definitely worth the wait! It is such a stunning building and a must see if you’re visiting Rome!
The best thing about Rome for me was the food! We knew it would be good but we weren’t quite prepared for how much we would eat! Every cobbled street is full of restaurants, bakeries and gelato shops and we made our way round a fair share.
If you’re planning a city break soon I would recommend Rome 100%! We found that it was more chilled than any other city that we had visited, you can spend all day getting lost around the winding streets without the need to jump on and off the underground and battle through the crowds. There is everything on offer from designer shops, old ruins, museums and more beautiful fountains and squares then you can count. We had a wonderful time eating, drinking and tripping over the cobbles!
