My family arrived for an awesome week of trips. One of our longer trips was to the capital of Italy, Rome. Rome was definitely the touristy part of Italy. It was a crazy time navigating public transport with my family. Our hotel was located near the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon, so that was a daily sight. The city was very typical Italian with local shops and cute cobblestoned streets with motorbikes whizzing by us. We decided to go on a tour of the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basillica, which was incredible and also incredibly crowded. We then went on a tour of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. We were definitely in the south of Italy because it was extremely hot and we were under- nourished for the day’s events. We all crashed after our meal and really spent the rest of the trip in recovery.
