We’ll always have Rome

What a wonderful trip me and my love had to one of the worlds most romantic cities Rome.

Day 1
IMG_4966Once we arrived we headed straight out to explore the streets in the sunshine. After a bite to eat we enjoyed the markets of Campo de Fiori looking at all the fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers. Afterwards we went to heart-shaped Villa Borghese a park that lies right in the centre of Rome. The view from the Pincian Hill overlooking Piazza del Popolo is stunning!

After rummaging through Rome’s vintage shops and finding many hidden treasures from some of Italy’s most famous designer brands, we finished the afternoon by having a little wander round to the famous Giolitti (one of Rome’s oldest ice cream parlours) for some gelato. There were so many flavours to pick from.

That evening we got lost within the back streets of Rome and stumbled across a restaurant tucked away from the hustle and bustle.

Day 2
We started our day by visiting the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. The Sistine Chapel is one of the most famous painted interior spaces in the world, and virtually all of this fame comes from the breathtaking painting of its ceiling from about 1508-1512. Absolutely breathtaking!

That evening we had dinner at Cucina del Teatro, this spot is tucked away under an ivy arbor.

After our morning coffee and croissant we walked along the Tiber the the third-longest river in Italy. First stop was the the Colosseum. Wonderful! There’s no other words to do this building justice.

To start our last evening in style I went to Aveda to get my hair blow-dried. I wore a mustard jacquard design with ruffle detailing dress, finished of with bow-front black satin no. 21 shoes. My boyfriend looked handsome in his black double breasted suit and brogues.

Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps) was our first stop that evening. We climbed the stairs to the top to take in the view while the sunset went down. Probably my favourite moment from this trip!

Our last evening meal was spent at Ristorante Al 34, with a pleasant mix of rustic wood beams, brick arches, Liberty-style mirrors and prints and a great selection of Italian classics this restaurant was a winner!

We finished of the evening by making wishes at the Trevi Fountain. Once our coins were tossed we walked back hand in hand to our apartment.

    Hi Lidia, I have two words – So Jealous!!! Rome is one of those cities that is on my list to visit someday. Such a cute market stall of flowers. The gelato sounds so good! I am sure finding a restaurant off the beaten path was so cool. The Vatican must be so awesome to see, it is a place of great architecture and the Sistine chapel must be stunning! The colloseum is something else too, a must see. I love the back photo of your dress, The ruffle detail must be cute! A nice tret to go to Aveda too. It sounds so romantic to finish with the Spanish steps and the trevi fountain! So cute to walk through the streets hand in hand after tossing your coins 🙂 I am so happy for you to have made the trip , good to see you on here Lidia , Hugs, Terri xo.
