Italia Adventures//Day 1// Roma

Sarah, Caitie, and I set out on our Italian adventure at around 9a from Praha. It turned out that most of us Americans were headed to Roma the same day so we all had the same flight with Wizz Air. After we arrived to the Fiumicino airport we had to take a train to the city. The train we took takes you to the Roma Termini, which is the main train station, and also just happened to be a few blocks from our hostel. We walked to the hostel after getting a little lost and checked in. We then found food because we were starving. We found a cute little place and promptly ordered a bottle of wine and bruschetta. And then we had calzones for lunch. It was delicious. After lunch we took the metro to the Colosseum. We were walking out of the metro stop and could see the Colosseum, we were all in complete shock and couldn’t even seem to make it out of the metro station, but we finally did, and started taking photos galore. It was so amazing to finally see it in person.

Later that night we decided to go see the Trevi Fountain, and couldn’t resist the gelato we found on the way there, so we got some gelato to go and headed towards fountain. We got to the Trevi and it is so big, I didn’t realize how big! There were so many people everywhere, but we finally made our way to the front and got our picture taken. It didn’t take long for us to get really sick of all of the people at the fountain so we headed to the Spanish Steps. There were also a lot of people there, and a lot of people trying to sell things, mainly roses and these annoying things that lit up and flew in the air. After having enough of that, we headed to find a nice place to get dinner.

We ended up at a nice little restaurant pretty close to the Spanish Steps that had amazing food. We were there for quite awhile eating and enjoying our wine. After dinner we decided to head back to the hostel and got a bottle of wine at the bar, we drank it and then headed to bed so we could wake up early to head to Firenze.

My delicious ravioli I had at dinner.
