The first thing that I need to say about Rome is that the Trevi Fountain is by far the most beautiful sight I’ve ever seen, it’s just breathtaking. Especially when it’s covered in snow! We happened to be in Rome while it snowed for the first time in 20 years! We certainly didn’t plan for it (poor Justin wore boat shoes that were soaked from the melting snow) but the experience was amazing. People of all ages were out playing in the snow, and everyone was out taking pictures, even the Romans.
We stayed at a lovely bed & breakfast just outside of Rome, where the owners were friendly and the rates were cheap! But you get what you pay for, and our breakfasts were pretty subpar- literally a basket of stale hot dog buns and pre-packed jellies? Really?! We just had all of our meals in Rome, which is no complaint! You can walk into pretty much any restaurant in Rome and eat delicious homemade made pasta with fresh tomatoes and the best bruschetta on the planet. Especially when you walk a few streets away from tourist hotspots.
We only had one day to see all of Rome, but that was enough to make me fall in love… I think I have a new favorite European city.
