Thank you to everyone who sent me messages and left kind comments on my Rome Travel Guide! I’m beyond happy to hear that many of you found it helpful and plan on using it during your upcoming travels. Prior to arriving in Rome, I’d heard lots of mixed reviews about visiting the city. Comments like… There are tons of pickpockets. It’s crowded and mobbed with tourists. Don’t waste a lot of time there and just go directly to the Amalfi Coast.
Despite the not-so-savory opinions, there was no way we were going to skip Rome. Maybe it’s the Lizzie McGuire fan-girl in me (anyone else remember the movie??) but I couldn’t imagine not exploring the romantic cobblestone streets and seeing landmarks like the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. In the end, I’m so glad we did decide to spend the first two nights of our trip in Rome. We honestly had the best time in our two short days. Rome was beautiful, lively and we couldn’t get enough of the architecture and sense of history.
One of my favorite moments was when we visited the Spanish Steps early in the morning. I had packed this blue wrap dress thinking I’d wear it in Positano, but I couldn’t resist quickly throwing it on to snap a few photos on the magnificent steps. It was definitely a very “extra” moment for me, but hey! When in Rome!
