We wanted to end off our Italy trip with 2 days in Rome as Mandy has been teaching her class all about Rome so it was a great opportunity to experience it first hand. There is way too much to see in Rome and we decided before we got there that we would limit our sight seeing to just a few places.
We like walking and exploring so we would catch the tube to the chosen site and then walk for the rest of the time. This is where things fell apart as we would leave the chosen site and before we could stop and have breakfast or lunch we would encounter another amazing place and would say “lets just see this and then stop” which on the one day ended up being about 7 hours of non stop sight seeing before we stopped to eat. There are so many tourists in Rome so visiting these amazing places requires a lot of patience as you stand in the seemingly never ending queues. Luckily we were first in the queue for the Colosseum and then at St Peter’s Basilica we were towards the front of the line even though it was still dark. Rome is a beautiful city where all the buildings have so much history and everything seems to be made with such amazing detail and such care that you can’t help admiring them. There is too much to see and do in Rome so no matter how long your stay is there you will always feel like you haven’t seen everything. Which leaves the door open for another visit…Ciao Roma!
