Trip to Italy: Rome ~ birdie to be2

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

After our amazing trip to Italy, I wanted to do a recap post of our adventures.

Our two week trip to Italy started in Rome. Absolutely gorgeous!

We stayed in an apartment in the heart of Rome. We were walking distance from most of the major sites. Even if a fairly long walk, it was so nice to explore & Rome the city.

The first day we did a walking tour of ancient Rome. This tour led us to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Capitoline Hill, Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon.

The nice part about being part of the tour group (besides all the information and knowledge we gained from the guide) was skipping all the entry lines.

The next day we walked to St. Peter's Square- the place everyone waited when the new pope was being elected. That evening we did another walking tour; this time visiting the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel.

Here were some of the delicious places we dined while in Rome:

Palazzaccio (Delicious, open late, and so friendly and accommodating.)
Ristorante Quirino (The food and the front patio were both lovely.)
Antica Enoteca (Great spot for lunch. Close to the major shopping areas and a hidden gem in the area.)
Grazia & Graziella (I loved the food and the interior decor. And the bonus is the after dinner limoncello drink.)

Grom (We went to the one in the Piazza Navona. It was one of my favorites of the trip!)
Gelateria Pasticceria (Right next to Trevi Fountain. Gelato is delicious and they also have a homemade cannoli bar!)

I will also get posts up of the Tuscany region, Cinque Terre and Milan.

Let me know if you're headed to Italy, I would be happy to help and offer up our experience and recommendations!
