This is a post you probably don’t expect to see from me here. Yes, I’m not a travel blogger and I don’t aim to become one (even though it sounds awesome) but I thought it would be nice to tell you more about my recent travels. As a person who wants to travel the world, I truly enjoy seeing other people share their travel experience. And I hope you’d enjoy my little post, too.
Last week, my sister took me to Rome for my birthday. We spent 2 days there and it’s not like we lacked of problems but eventually we sorted everything out and it went all well. We tried to see all the famous locations in the city but we still couldn’t do all we wanted. For instance, I couldn’t try Italian ice-cream and everyone says it’s the best!
After a lot of walking, we checked all of the places I had on my list but 2 days are far from enough to explore the city to its fullest.
And we could not miss to visit Vatican city as well. I must say, the Vatican museum was the most impressive place I’ve ever been to. The wall and roof art was stunning and a true masterpiece!
And of course we had to try the famous Italian cappuccino, tiramisu and home-made wine.
The thing that I learnt from this trip is to double or even triple check the hotels I’m booking. We had to change ours because it turned out there was no public transportation from the airport to the hotel and we had to pay EUR30 one-way for a taxi. For the money we would have given for taxis, we decided to book a B&B in the very centre of the city.
The only bad impression I had from Rome itself was that it was quite dirty. There were empty food packages and garbage around the whole city which sucks but it’s not anything I’m not used to, to be honest. 😀
Places to visit
- Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore
- Piazza Navona
- Fontana di Trevi
- Roman Forum
- Altare della Patria
- Piazza Venezia
- Vatican Gardens

Where to eat
- Caffe Barocco n Gard – Really nice place with the best view towards the Navona square and the fountain. Plus, their tiramisu is amazing!
- Restaurante Quirino – Small vintage-style restaurant right next to Fontana di Trevi. The food was reasonably priced, compared to other places we checked and the food was also nice.
