The Eternal City
I was really excited to have Rome as our first stop in Italy. Rome has so much history in it's city walls. The Colosseum, Pantheon, Italian Renaissance Churches were surreal. I've always had a particular interest in ancient greek classics and mythology, so this was a great first look into Italy. Our first big one day trip was to the Vatican, and I felt so mind blown by the art and architecture of the buildings. I left the Vatican with my jaws dropped, there is just nothing like it. One of the best dishes I ever ate, was the plate of Porcini mushrooms just cooked perfectly with olive oil. I was also able to meet up with my friend Julie who was just passing by during her EuroTrip.
