Roma & Vatican City

We slept in a bit and got up around 10:30 a.m. The lady at our hostel told us that if we wanted to go to the Vatican we should go later in the afternoon, around 2ish, so there wouldn’t be as many people. 669 more words

Roman Holiday

I have dreamed of traveling to La Città Eterna - Rome, “the Eternal City” – ever since I watched the Lizzie McGuire Movie. I can quote that film like it’s nobody’s business, and thankfully I got to experience this city with someone who can as well. 842 more words

Rushing around in Rome

It’s weird to think thousands and thousands of years ago the city of Rome was full of well… Romans. Julius Caesar. I guess you can say the same about London and King Henry 8th (if we are on the subject of tyrants) but walking around this city full of plush boutiques and buildings that are older than I can even perceive is a strange combination. 1,011 more words

Una Passeggiata a Roma (A Walk in Rome)

Walking around Rome is one of my favorite activities. I absolutely think it is the best way to see the city. When asked what my favorite thing about Rome is, besides everything, I answer that I love the fact that I can wander down a side street, turn the corner and stumble upon a beautiful monument like to Pantheon or the Trevi Fountain; or you can take the wrong bus and end up at the Colosseum (I did twice while studying abroad & it’s the happiest of accidents). 477 more words
