Our two full days in Rome were spent touring the Vatican, Colosseum, Roman Ruins, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Villa Borghese, Trevi Fountain and all of the other main attractions in the city. We had guides along the way, which was so helpful in learning and being reminded of the history of each thing we saw. If you are heading to Rome make sure to check out Villa Borghese! It’s the most beautiful park where you can rent bikes, have picnics and take a nap in the shade. After trucking around the city in 100 degree weather, we cooled off in the park and rode bikes around.<

A Night In Rome

For our first night in Rome, Thomas and decided to switch things up and get sushi for dinner at SOMO Penthouse (the rooftop restaurant at The First Hotel in Rome). Not only did they have really good sushi, but the views were amazing!  After walking around for a bit post-dinner, we both started craving pizza and happened to walk by Pizza Ré 2, which looked and smelled amazing. We were both so glad we did because it ended up being our favorite pizza of the trip!

*For those of you visiting Rome, we stayed at Hotel St. George. It was a great hotel that was near a lot of main attractions, but on a quiet street.

When In Rome

T Shirt Zara, Skirt Anthropologie (on sale!), Sandals Madewell (on sale!), Purse Miu Miu, Sunglasses Dior

After Florence, Thomas and I took a train to Rome. I loved using the train systems instead of driving in Italy.  They were really quick and easy to use and I would definitely recommend  them if you are planning a trip to Italy. I love this Anthropologie skirt (last seen here). It’s so comfy and perfect for traveling. These pictures were taken after we checked into our hotel and started exploring Rome!

P.S. Check out the interview I did was the sweet Shannon from GBO Fashion.
