Roming around Italy - One Day in Rome

I am so excited to finally share the Rome trip Marie and I did in the beginning of July. To put it in a nutshell: it was a great, hot, touristy day with good food and taking lots of photos. But for anyone who would like to hear me rambling a bit more about our less than 24 hours stay in Rome keep reading.

Basically the two of us planned to go on a little trip months, well maybe years ago. But due to different uni schedules, other plans and being not the best decision makers it has always just been an idea of us. Until we finally looked more seriously for a rather cheap flight anywhere in Europe (we were pretty open for any place to discover). Rome has always been on my list of places I wanted to see so when we came across a cheap flight to Rome on a day that worked for the two of us - we booked! I just wanted to see the beautiful architecture Rome has to offer with my own eyes (along with eating some traditional Italian pizza of course. Who doesn't love food, right? Not me FOR SURE.)

It has been an early morning (waking up 3:30am ... not to mention we stayed up until midnight). But I don't want to complain because Rome was waiting for us.
We had a rough plan of what we wanted to see (that's why we stayed up until midnight because we haven't really made a plan before that haha). So on our list was the Colosseum, Vatican City, the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. We started with the Colosseum and walked to the other places which was in my eyes the perfect way to get around because this way we didn't miss out on Rome's cute little streets, shops and other not so famous but just as beautiful attractions. I would highly recommend just walking around the city you want to explore. Just grab a map and you're good to go!

I couldn't even say what my favorite spot was because the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain, I couldn't wait to see, took my breath away but obviously there are so many tourists around that the vibes and atmosphere in different locations is just as beautiful and not as packed.

Have you ever been to Rome? If so, what was your favorite thing about it?
