The Wonders of Rome

Ciao Bellas!

So I have been slacking (as per usual) on posting more about our Europe vacation.  Well, I was just looking at pictures and reminiscing on how amazing every part of it was.  I really loved Rome, the history in that city is so amazing.  Europe is just so old compared to the US and the buildings, structures and just overall feel always amazes me.  Here are some shots from one of our days in Rome.  We only got to spend 2 nights (one in the beginning of our trip and then one at the end) and we made the most of it.  I really want to go back and try to stay for longer.  I feel like there is just so much to see and explore!

Have you ever been to Rome?  Any tips on must-see places?!

The Colosseum was fanastic!  To think they had the ability to build this almost 2,000 years ago is so mind blowing to me!  I highly recommend taking a guided tour.  Our tour guide was so informative and made the experience that much more enjoyable!

Me on the inside of the Colosseum.  They said that from what they have gathered the Colosseum used to be painted in beautiful, vibrant colors.

My handsome hubby.  It was SO hot and sunny this day (probably around 90F) and we were dying but we were able to get some really amazing pics along the way!

After the Colosseum our tour guide took us on a nice long walk where we saw the Forum (pictured here).  Its so crazy that as you walk down the streets of Rome you will see all these ancient structures all over.  They do an amazing job trying to preserve everything they come across

The last 2 pictures are of the Pantheon.  Such a beautiful building inside and out.  The rounded dome ceiling is so magical. 

I loved this part of our trip.  I cannot wait to go back and get a chance to explore more.  I will post about our other day in Rome.  Get this, I actually found a raw VEGAN place to eat at near our hotel.  Tom was such a trooper and went there because I really wanted to go.  He really enjoyed what he got and I loved it all!

Have a great rest of the week lovies!

  1. Hello! I just happened to stumble upon your blog and I am absolutely in love! Your pictures from Rome are awesome. My family is from Sicily (an island just off of Italy) and so I’ve always wanted to visit there. Hopefully one day I will be able to! Anyways, just wanted to say I love your blog. I’ll be sure to give you a follow!
