This weekend was a fairytale for me. I finally got to travel to Italy. It has been a dream of mine to go to Italy from the good food, to the beautiful language, to the historical sites. On top of that, I have been taking this Italian class all semester long and I was excited to get to put my new language to the test.
Once again Alicia was my travel buddy for the trip, but one of our friends in the program, Joe, joined us as well. We took off on Wednesday evening and spent the next 2.5 days sightseeing around Rome. In just one weekend, I got to see so much within the city of Rome. Each time I travel I am reminded of how much you can see and get done in one day.
Some highlights were the Colosseum, Victoriano,Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, the Vatican, and beautiful plazas and markets.
As cliché as it sounds, I loved the Trevi Fountain. There was something so beautiful and surpassed all of the pictures and movie clips I have seen. It was just as beautiful in the day as the night. Oh and the food was absolutely amazing, so fresh and delicious.
I also really enjoyed the Spanish Steps. It was a really beautiful site to see but I loved the view of the city from the top the most. In many ways it reminded me of the Lizzie McGuire Movie.
