After catching our final water taxi at three in the morning, we arrived at the airport for our second Italian destination: Rome. I know I’m not alone when I say Rome has always been on my bucket list of places to visit. We made it to our Airbnb, which was not quite what we had been promised, but all that aside, we were in Rome, who could complain about that?
All we did the first day was walk to the Coliseum and grab food. The second day was when we bought our tickets to enter the amphitheatre, as well as the Roman Forum. I was immediately overwhelmed by the size of everything, and the intricacy of detail throughout the ancient city. I was incredible to see places I had only read about or seen pictures of come to life.
The next day, Lori and I did yet another bus tour, with a main stop at Vatican City. Opulence and wonder coats every street and corridor. The amount of artwork left me in awe, each piece stealing my breath. This day was a particular favorite of mine from our time in Rome.
Sorry this one isn’t as wordy as my previous posts, but hopefully the pictures suffice! Thanks for reading/viewing; stay tuned for my next post!
