Traveling Thoughts: Rome


{5 cities, 3 countries, 2 weeks. Our most recent adventure was nothing short of epic. We left the US with three goals: 1) See Europe 2) enjoy quality time together and 3) Have fun. Mission accomplished!}

From Amsterdam we moved onward to Rome. And though there was no one to greet us at the airport, we made our way quickly to our hotel to drop our bags. Immediately we were out the door for a quick bite and then to start exploring. 

Rome is a beautiful city. Each nook and cranny offers some historical perspective. For me, it rivaled the beauty of Paris. The history amazed me. We walked where people have walked for thousands of years. We saw sites that just take your breath away. My personal favorites were St. Peter’s Basilica and the Coliseum/Roman Forum/Palatine Hill. We explored ornate piazzas. We saw funny street performers, crossed beautiful bridges, and ate delicious gelato (and a lot of it). We drank wine, listened to beautiful music, dined at hidden restaurants and sipped cappuccinos.  Rome was delightful and romantic.

I love knowing that I didn’t see everything there is to see so I have more to look forward on our next trip and what we left unexplored. Here are some highlights!
