I know there’s no such thing as a perfect holiday, but if there ever was one, it was our first trip to Rome.
From the moment our plane began its descent into Ciampino airport, I could tell this trip was going to be something special. As luck would have it, we’d been seated on the scenic side of the airplane, so while the pilot slowly eased us back onto the ground, we had a bird’s eye view of everything – the Colosseum, Vatican City, the Pantheon, and every other sight Italy’s capital is known for.
The next three days were a blur of pizzas eaten in famous piazzas, daily walks taken through the pages of history books come to life, sunny afternoons and gelato, perpetually drained camera batteries, hours-long meals shared with the relatives, and even a glimpse of the pope. Writing it all out like that makes our entire trip sound like one giant Italian cliche, but if there was ever a place to indulge in cliches, it would be Rome. All of the things that make you roll your eyes and say, ‘Of course you tried eleven different flavors of gelato in one day’ are undeniably, without a doubt essential to the success of your first trip to Rome. You’ll no doubt leave several kilograms heavier, but trust me, it’s so worth it.
If this is your first time in Rome, you’re probably wondering what, of the massive list of things to do and see in this beautiful, historic city, is actually worth doing. On my NexT posta I will share an itinerary of what you have to visit during your escape to Rome 🧡
Stay tuned ✌️
