My Favorite Rome Moments

Published by at 5:35 pm under Italy,Rome

We’ve packed too much in to give you a play by play of our trip here. Also, since many of you have probably been to Rome, it seems silly to tell you all about the places we’ve seen. Instead, I’ll tell you about a few of my favorite moments from our visit in Rome:

  • Getting lost on tiny cobblestone streets.
  • Eating dinner ai fuori (outside) and listening to everyone around me speak Italian.
  • Getting shooed into the world’s tiniest elevator with Dave, all of our luggage and our B&B host Norberto (seriously, one person shouldn’t even ride in this thing).
  • Walking down the Roman Forum on the same stones that people walked on 2000 years ago. I took Latin in high school and learned about all of this 20 years ago, and I’ve been wondering why it’s taken me so long to come here and see it with my own eyes. Seeing all of these buildings and roads that were built during the rise and fall of Rome made me feel better – as if 20 years really wasn’t that long ago.
  • Strolling down the Via Appia Antica on a warm sunny Sunday when cars aren’t allowed to drive there.

    Your trip sounds awesome so far! Brings back memories of my own travels to Rome. I loved getting lost in all those narrow alleys and randomly coming across cool fountains. Your mention of a gelateria also brought back memories. I think my diet was at least 50% chocolate gelato while I was there. : )
