My Italian Adventure: Rome Day 1 & 2

April 23, 2014

Our last day in Florence and first day in Rome basically consisted of another train ride, more traveling, and a bike tour around Rome.  I won't bore you with all the details, but here are a few pictures: 

In the middle of our bike tour, we stopped for some delicious crepes! I got Nutella and white chocolate inside of mine (it was AMAZING!)

In Rome, we stayed at the lovely Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria, which is about 20 minutes outside of the main area of Rome.  This hotel was absolutely magnificent!  We were given the the most beautiful and spacious rooms (and as a bonus, we got the comfiest slippers!) The hotel was so huge; it was like being on a cruise ship! Inside the hotel is a shopping mall, 2 swimming pools, a restaurant, and famous sculptures and art on display.  The hotel was so amazing; we didn't want to leave! But, we had an exciting day planned in Rome! We began our day with a tour of the Vatican.  We got to see the amazing sculptures of ancient Rome, St. Peter's Basilica, and the magnificent Sistine Chapel (where my dad nearly got arrested for trying to snap a pic of the beautiful ceiling painted by Michelangelo). 

 

 

After the Vatican, we stopped at a cute market place for lunch! 

 

 

Then, we took a nice walk over to the Trevi Fountain.  On the way, I stopped in front of the Altare della Patria to take some pics of my outfit of the day! 

I am wearing a pair of my J.Crew patterned pants and a pink J.Crew v-neck sweater.  This outfit was perfect because it was super comfy.  We did a lot of activities in Rome, and I wasn't uncomfortable at all in this great outfit!  My only issue is that the sweater is a bit see-through because it is so lightweight.  So, I make sure to always wear a plain tank underneath (and I can't say enough great things about this sweater; I own it in 4 different colors!).  I am also wearing my favorite DKNY gladiators and two strings of pearls.  This outfit was so bright and fun! Our next stop is my FAVORITE place in Italy (and possibly one of my favorite places in the entire world): The Trevi Fountain! The Trevi Fountain is so magnificent and beautiful! The only problem is that it is SO crowded with tourists.  But, I pushed my way to the front to get some amazing pictures. 

I even got to have my Lizzie McGuire moment and make a wish!  Finally, we ended the day with some gelato at the Spanish Steps.  It was such a lovely day in Rome!
Keep checking for more on my exciting vacation!
