Happy Weekend (and Rome recap)

10/30/2016 02:41:00 PM

Our trip to Italy.

This weekend: ...and we're back. It was a magical trip.

  • We saw the Trevi Fountain - twice. It was packed with tourists (us being two of them) and the second time we went, I couldn't pass up the gelato shop there.
  • The food was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G (like Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love amazing). I could not get enough of the pasta and Nick was delighted with the coffee. The bread and pastries were just {meh} - France has them beat on this.
  • Some of our many stops: Vatican City, Castel Sant'Angelo, The Colosseum, The Roman Forums, Piazza Navona (Nick's favorite), Villa Borghese, The Pantheon, The Spanish Steps...
  • My favorite sites, though, were the ones we didn't plan on going to - like the cute little side streets all throughout Rome or the random Cathedral nestled within an unexpected Piazza. I think that is the reason why Rome is such a great walking city. You never know what you'll find at the next turn.
  • And finally, no trip to Europe is complete without a stop at Laduree. Best.Macrons.Ever.
Have a great (Halloween) weekend!
