Rome was my favorite! Maybe it was the perfect weather, or our posh hotel room, or the delicious gelato every night…or all of the above. Rome was very different than London and Paris. For one, we basically walked everywhere. In London and Paris, we were hopping on and off the subway everyday but Rome was “small” enough that most places were a 20 minute walk away. We took a taxi trips only to/from the airport and Vatican City. There was also just something about how OLD everything was that really amazed me. Makes you wonder if anything that is built today will still be standing 2,000 years from now.
Here’s all of the spots we visited in Rome:
- Roman Forum & Palatine Hill
- Trevi Fountain
- Vatican City (We did a guided tour that included the Vatican Gardens, Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and Saint Peter’s Basilica. In retrospect we should not have done a 5 hour tour on the last day of our trip when we had already been trekking around for almost 2 weeks. We were SO TIRED.)
From a photography perspective, I had to deal with a lot of scaffolding (again!). The Colosseum and Arch of Constantine are being refurbished over the next several years. That just means I’ll have to come back once they are done! 😉 Here are some of my faves from Rome:
