Rome was too much for one post. I figure I’d break it up for you in hopes that you keep reading!
The Vatican City is rather breath taking and a place I think everyone should visit at least once – even if you’re not Catholic. If you look hard enough you can find a tour for €55 (if you’re a student), for when you have some companies giving you “discounts” for €75 you’ll be grateful for this tip! The museum is amazing and I got to see my favorite form of art (sculptures) I’m learning as they are everywhere. We had the greatest tour guide (she reminded me of Flo from the Progressive commercials) and she was thorough and precise in showing us the highlights of the museum and ensuring that we wouldn’t get lost in the second largest museum in the world!
After that we also made it to the pantheon which was honestly just a room with a hole in the ceiling. Now, I’m sure there’s more to this structure (yes, I at least know it’s a church) and I’ll look up its importance later but in my opinion it’s not really a must see.
One of our last visits was to the Spanish steps and luckily the route we took had us going down the steps instead of up them! Again, not on my top 10 of things to revisit, but glad I have started checking things off of the ‘must-see’ bucket list.
Finally, no visit to Italy would be complete without having tried a cannoli. I never thought I would like a cream filled anything, but this dessert right here can kill someone with no self control. I’m truly going to miss this place – can’t wait to see what’s next!
