Rome is one of our favourite Cities.
Our last visit was mid February 2020- just before the pandemic started to restrict travel.
Prior to that Helen had been a few more times than Andy.
City Wonders tour, Dark Heart of Rome Tour, Tours of the Vatican, Colosseum, St. Peter’s Basilica, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi fountain, Roman Forum, Piazza Navona, Sisteen Chapel, Catacombs tour, Castel Sant’Angelo, Palatine Hill, Villa Borghese, Piazza del Popolo, St. Peter´s Square, Campidoglio, Altar of the Fatherland, Circus Maximus, and so much more.
We did a LOT of walking the last trip, circumventing around the city, along the top of the hills, looking across at a view unexpected from the surprising vantage point.
We had lots of food – as you would expect- but the best? We discovered – by accident- the food court area in the train staton. Here we had our first arrancini balls.
(We´ve been trying to find some in Spain since we returned, with no joy so far)
We will definitely be back again.
Our two pieces of advice:
- Plan. Lots. And wear comfy shoes- lots of walking
- The taxi from the airport. The price on the sticker on the side of the door is the MAXIMUM they can charge you- and count the money into the drivers hand. They can be right bastards claiming you´ve given them a 10€ instead of a 50€
We will add photos from the different trips in the future (these trips were before we started vlogging)
