ITALIAN TOUR: ROME – DAY 1 & 2

Am I the only person that falls in love with new places? Rome isn’t a new place for me, however I fall in love with Rome over and over again. I love sharing my experiences through photos, videos and blog posts and I know I will definitely be playing catch up when I get him.

At the end of August, I jumped on a plane ready for a little tour around Italy. Initially, I was meant to go to Palermo, Sicily, start at the bottom and work my way up Italy. However, I love my summer job and I was needed there so I stayed for an additional week.

However, I made it to Italy with no regrets and I am honestly loving life.

 

DAY 1:

Catching flights, not feelings. – I say this every time I catch a flight.

With a flight at 8.20am, my day started at 3/4am – it was tough but worth it. I started the day with a Nandos breakfast (was so freaking good) and ended it with a gelato in Rome.

Blueberry pancakes, chicken sausages and halloumi cheese. Thanks Nandos!

Roma Termini – the station from everywhere and to everywhere.

The Beehive Rome, my home for the week. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Excuse my messy room. Was super comfortable at The Beehive Rome; love a double bed and a bright room.

Returned to a restaurant I visited in Rome in November. The brushchetta was almost as good as the first time.

Crema and vanilla gelato at one of my favourite gelatarias – L’Orso Bianco

Rome is small but so big at the same time. It is a beautiful place to wonder around and get lost. There is so much history and beautiful architecture in Rome

 

DAY 2:

I was actually pretty ill over night, so I didn’t leave my hostel until about 2pm. I took a trip to Tiburtina Station where a market saw in November was based and I got a cute ring so I went back for more because I left the ring in Rome – haha. I then found a wall which I thought would be a really nice background while on the way to Trastevere and ended up having a mini photo shoot. I managed to find a ledge to put my phone and camera on and used the timers, that’s the thing with travelling solo – you’ve got to be creative. After my little photo shoot, I wandered to Fontana di Trevi for a gelato and just some time to relax and reflect. It was lovely, I’m a hopeless romantic – so seeming all the couples was super cute. Especially when they were trying to get good selfies, so I offered to take photos for several couples and obviously I did a great job and made sure to give them options – haha.

Risked my life for this photo. Think it was worth it.

Thought a photo on this wall would be Instagrammable – haha.

Fontana di Trevi.

Its not a trip to Rome without topping up your wish at Fontana di Trevi.

Church of Saints Vincenzo and Anastasio in Trevi.

 

My day didn’t actually end at Fontana di Trevi, I came across a building that people in tents were occupying and found out they were homeless. I won’t dive into that now though, that is for another post.

I’m in love with Rome and I know I’ll be back sooner rather than later.

Thank you to The Beehive for hosting my stay. As always, my opinions are my own and honest.

    I’m shocked you were able to get such a clear photo at the fountain. Every time I have been it has been crawling with people that I had to wedge myself on the edge like the last pick spear in a jar of pickles.

    WOW! Everything looks so beautiful! The architecture, environment, and food (of course). Looks like you are having a great time, and you are definitely making me want to travel to Rome.

    Your pictures are so gorgeous! I just visited Italy last month so this was so relevant for me. Rome was absolutely beautiful. One of my favorite cities ever.
