rome travel diary

By Sophie - November 28, 2017

Over the summer, I spent three intense days in Rome. We visited landmarks, museums, restaurants and more. Ironically, I was most looking forward to my hotel and the shopping but those turned out to be disappointments. Instead, my highlights were everything below.
A few minutes walk from the Roman Forum and Colosseum lies Monti, an area filled with up and coming restaurants and shops. I love avocado, so the avocado bar was a must visit for me. The burger was good, but seriously overpriced.

The one advantage to jetlag is being able to beat the crowds. We went to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain several times throughout our trip, because they were around the corner from our hotel, but we made a point to go in the morning to see both, without the tourists.

This was one of my favorite areas, filled with restaurants. On the left is a photo from Taverna Trilussa, with their famous ravioli. It was definitely my favorite meal in Rome. The photo on the right is from a gelato shop we went to, everything in the area was delicious!
One of the most spectacular buildings, the Colosseum is as grand in real life as the name suggests.

In this tiny country, there are 20000 works on display. It's impossible to fit everything into one day, but I saw some of the greatest masterpieces that I have marveled over for years.
