Rome has got to be one of the best cities that I’ve visited and I’d love to go back there one day! We went in the September and it was really warm and sunny, we did tonnes of sight seeing and walking but still didn’t manage to see everything to city has to offer!
My second favourite subject at school, behind English, was History, so all of course, I was completely in my element as Rome is a city that is rich with History. We visited many of the main sites including; the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, The Vatican, the Capuchin Crypt, the Piazza Navona, Pantheon, the Torre Argentina cat Sanctuary, and the Forum. It’s such a beautiful city and it’s really amazing how old some of the buildings are, especially once you do a little bit of research about their significance!
Of course, everyone loves Italian food and the pasta and pizza over there was absolutely beautiful! I also tried some Italian Gelato and it was the best ice cream I’ve ever had (I’d go back just for more gelato!). I’ve always enjoyed cooking Italian food and chose Italy as the country to base my technical exam on in GCSE food technology, so trying real Italian food was something I’ve always wanted to do and it definitely didn’t disappoint!
I’m definitely planning on going back here…here’s some photos of the trip!
