ROMA! Such a beautiful place. This was our first stop in Italy. We spent 3 days there and that was more than enough to see the city. This is a huge walking city, we walked EVERYWHERE. We only really took cabs when our feet hurt from walking or we were dressed up for dinner.
We took the train from the Airport into the city, it was cheap, easy and comfortable. Way better than taking a cab. We stayed at the Hotel Artimede. It's a small boutique type hotel, the room was small but the staff and cleanliness of the hotel really made up for it. The hotel has a great rooftop patio for drinks and food. Downstairs, they served breakfast which was included and a huge plus. We would have coffee and a small breakfast and plan our days out.
Our first day we arrived a tad early, so we needed to wait for our room. We sat at the rooftop bar and had a drink while our room was being prepared and planned our afternoon. The sky was blue and the weather was around 23 degrees celsius, it was a perfect start.
I'm not going to go into full detail about each day because I do have a full Italy vlog coming out. But I will give you an overview of what we did and where we ate.
Coliseum (wasn't that busy, but apparently there's a night tour that's amazing!)
Pantheon (didn't go inside)
St. Peters & Vatican City
Trevi Fountain (I recommend going really early in the morning to get the good photos and experience)
Piazza Navona & Fontana Dei Quattro Fiumi
Castel Sant'Angelo (didn't go inside but walked by it on the way to vatican city)
Piazza Vanezia & Altare della Patria
Piazza Del Popolo
Casina Valadier in Borghese Gardens: highly recommend for the food and the view
Emma Pizzeria Con Cucina: fantastic!
Restaurant Mirabelle Rome: very good but honestly not worth the money
Henry's Bar: We kind of went here as a joke food was good, it was fun, classic henrys bar
Restaurant Roscioli: I actually didn't go here because I couldn't get in but it came HIGHLY recommended. I suggest you make a reservation or try at lunch and do the wait!
All of the stores around the Spanish Steps are high end and its fun to walk around
There's a really cool streetwear store across from Rosciolli
There are a lot of stores in the Piazza Del Popolo
*I didn't buy anything because the Canadian Dollar is awful right now*
And that basically sums up my trip to Rome. We then got on a Train to Naples and had a driver pick us up to head to Sorrento!
