ANCIENT ROME

ANCIENT ROME

On our last full day in Rome, our travel agent scheduled a tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Thankfully, the Pantheon was a convenient stop en route to our Colosseum tour meet up location. We arrived to that part of town early enough that we were able to walk right inside the Pantheon and look around. Here are a collection of photos from our day spent immersed in Ancient Rome!

SUNRISE AT THE TREVI FOUNTAIN

SUNRISE AT THE TREVI FOUNTAIN

On our first morning in Rome we woke up extra early to get to the Trevi Fountain before sunrise. I picked out a dress just for the occasion. I wanted to look perfect. I thought about what I would wish for and hoped to get a picture of the two of us that would last a lifetime. Our cab driver dropped us off as close as he could get to the fountain and gave us walking directions. When Chris told me it was right around the corner I took off in a sprint.

MT. VESUVIUS & POMPEII RUINS

MT. VESUVIUS & POMPEII RUINS

Our travel agent booked this day trip for us so we had private transportation from Naples to Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii. I would suggest going this route because you don’t have to navigate the subway system. Plus, you get dropped off higher up the mountain so the hike is shorter. Considering the first part of the hike up Mt. Vesuvius is straight up I was happy to be given a head start. Continue reading “MT. VESUVIUS & POMPEII RUINS”

5 THINGS TO DO IN VENICE, ITALY

5 THINGS TO DO IN VENICE, ITALY

Venice gets the award for being unlike any city I’ve ever visited. The city is made up of smaller islands attached by bridges. Public transportation is a fleet of boats not buses. There are no cars or bikes to be found due to the narrow walkways. Getting lost isn’t just a possibility here, it’s guaranteed. Let me tell you all about 5 things you should do if you find yourself in stunning Venezia. Continue reading “5 THINGS TO DO IN VENICE, ITALY”

POSITANO GUIDE

POSITANO GUIDE

Getting to see Positano in person was easily one of the most surreal experiences of my life. I’ve been determined to stop saying “some day” and start buying plane tickets and making plans. In this case we had to get a plane ticket, a train ticket, a subway ticket, and a bus ticket. The trip from Rome is not for the faint of heart but finding my feet in Positano made it all worth it. Chris and I decided it was our favorite day so that’s why I’m starting the guides here. Enjoy! Continue reading “POSITANO GUIDE”
