Spanish Steps

After landing in Vienna and spending a great week together my parents and I headed to Italy via a quick stop in Bratislava.


In Rome we managed to see all the major sites including:

Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Roman Forum, Palatine, Vatican City. We saw the major plaza’s and walked through Villa Bourgese.

I highly recommend the Palatine and the Forum. It's absolutely overwhelming. The Colosseum wasnt actually that much to look at if you've seen all the movies etc but the stories you get from a tour are worth it.

I loved Trevi fountain and the area around it has some great Al fresco dining places. 

It was great to see my mum speaking Italian and she was like a kid in a candy shop running around talking to everyone she could, telling them her story and just being friendly in general. We ate some awesome meals and got massively ripped off once buying gelati (see review).

In all, Rome was fantastic fun but I could definitely never live there.


Anyhow the whole reason we traveled to Italy was to get to Calabria… so lets move along…
