Our dinner tonight was exactly what I imagined having every night while staying here in Rome. “Colline Emiliane” is a family owned & operated Italian restaurant. It’s about 1/4 mile away from the Trevi fountain- down and around the corner of two alley ways. If I never read about the food, and location, we would… Continue reading Last dinner in Rome.
Today we decided to wake up early & head over to our favorite coffee bar. We were up & out by 7:30am. It’s beautiful here in the morning- not many people out. Not any long lines to wait in. No vendors trying to sell you selfie sticks & not as much noise. We grabbed souvenirs,… Continue reading Last day in Rome.
This afternoon Sam said “I actually don’t feel much like a tourist today”. Four days here, and we’re getting used to walking around to where we need to get, finding our favorites in certain places, and getting back home! We started later today- just about 11am. By the time we made it to our favorite… Continue reading DAY IV

Perfect start to the day. Sam ordered a double espresso + double chocolate croissant. I ordered an apricot croissant + double espresso- while also… Continue reading Long day, late post!
We did a much better job touring today then yesterday …especially with food. The last thing Sam & I wanted to do while staying in Rome, was to get stuck at ‘touristy’ food traps around popular landmarks (like last night with our pizza). Today we woke up a bit later, and head out to the… Continue reading Day II
Sam & I were pretty hungry at this point- for something more than an airplane dinner… After viewing the Pantheon, we walked around to find a good pizza. This is when I realized how pushy the hostesses in Rome are to get you to come in and eat at their restaurant! We finally decided… Continue reading Finally, gelato!
After a long day of travelling, we decided a taxi ride into Pigna would be the best bet. 50€ later, we arrived to our airbnb. The flat is located in a quaint little alley way with limited access to cars, and a 2 minute walk to the Pantheon. The taxi driver took out our luggage… Continue reading Taxi!
