My dear Rome…

Undoubtedly it was an amazing surprise to meet you! You are super stylish and you are full of stories to tell us.

It seems unbelievable, but it was my first time in Rome. I’ve been to Paris, London, Milan and Madrid, but I hadn’t been to Rome. OMG! It seems to be impossible?!

I arrived in Rome and thought, “How could I have never been here?

A place that makes us travel to the past,  full of history and memories.

I’m going to share with you the best places that you should visit!

Take notes:

Vatican

An unforgettable experience, no doubt it’s a must!

As soon as I arrived, I came across a super large square full of tourists. The “so-called” S.Pedro Square is one of the most universal squares in the world.

Then I took a tour at the Vatican, through the Basilica of S.Pedro, with one of the most imposing domes that I have ever seen!

This Basilica is the largest and most important religious temple. It’s where the Pope celebrates the liturgies.

The Sistine Chapel is one of the greatest treasures of the Vatican.

The paintings on the ceilings are stunning and your head just seems to be backwards, with amazement and so much appreciation!

 

Piazza del Popolo

Known as the entrance to Rome. This is the place that I chose to take my special pic with a gelato and enjoying seeing the street shows that were going on the streets.

Trevi Fountain

Does anyone believe it was built in 19 BC? For me the most beautiful fountain I’ve ever seen! Always full of tourists, both by day and by night, incredible…!

I threw a coin and asked for a wish, that “I want to come back here again”.

About the picture I took, I managed to take a mythical photo, but it wasn’t easy! The fountain is always full of people around it.

Piazza Colonna

It’s surrounded by imposing buildings

Pantheon Rome

Its most conserved artwork, with some unusual dimensions. Inside we can see several different kinds of works of art. Don’t forget to look up at the ceilings!!

Colosseum

The famous Coliseum, known in antiquity as Flavian Amphitheater. An imposing monument that receives millions of tourists per year, because of it’s enormous historical characteristics. Beneath, it has its tunnels were the gladiators used to pass through, straight to the main arena. A magnificent and imposing monument for sure!

Roman Forum

This is were the social life of ancient romans was developed. They used to socialise with one another here. It’s an ideal place to walk and enjoy.

Plaza de Venezia

At this square there are amazing monuments that are definitely worth stopping for, to gaze at. They are so beautiful and majestic. It’s a Must!

Trastevere

A super charming traditional Roman neighborhood full of life, bars and good restaurants. Ideal for walking without a map.

Piazza di Spagna

A very colourful square full of life! It has a huge long staircase covered with flowers, which connects the square to the church on top.

A place to have a break and eat a gelato!!!

For shopping lovers it’s a great place to shop all the luxurious brands, since they all located in that piazza!

Where to stay

Grand Hotel Palace, super well located and friendly!

What to eat

Pizzas and more pizzas… Pasta, burratas, mozzarella and of course gelato. You can eat this anywhere and everywhere while you discover the 4 corners of the city! Ideal to gain a few extra pounds!

 Two Restaurants that I went to and recommend:

– Gusto (Piazza Augusto Imperatore, 9)  pizzeria and wine bar! The real Neapolitan Pizza

– Chinappi Seafood (Via Augusto Valenziani, 19) Amazing, good quality Seafood

– La Terrazza (Via Ludovisi, 49) at the Hotel Eden!

– Glass Hostaria (Vicolo de´Cinque)
