This “Eternal City” is one of the most beautiful cities on earth and I would go back in a heartbeat.
June is probably not the best time to go if you can’t stand sizzlin’ in the heat but we dealt with the sunshine by indulging in Gelato several times a day. We burned off the calories by walking everywhere (except Vatican City).
Our Airbnb was convenient (I can’t find the link but here’s the location: Piazza dei Consoli, Roma, Lazio 00175, Italy) – close to the metro, Colosseum, good restaurants, clean, cool…basically did the job if you’re not looking to spend much time in the accommodation itself.
Three nights were more than enough for us and we saw everything we wanted to, ate and drank plenty and to be honest I don’t think our legs could take anymore walking anyway. The only disappointment was that Trevi fountain was under maintenance so there was no Lizzie McGuire moment for me. This was just another way of Rome telling me to come back.
My favourite spots:
2. St. Peter’s Basilica- the view from the top of the dome is amazing ( the staircase is very narrow so just be cautious if you’re claustrophobic)
3. The Pantheon
4. Piazza di Spagna
5. Sa Posada – great restaurant
