Flew from Athens to Rome today. Rome is so beautiful and I feel like I appreciate the architecture and history a lot more then when I was here 2 years ago.
Our hotel is really nice! Upon arrival we went down the street to a good Italian restaurant. I had the ravioli and we had some kick-ass Bruschetta. Then our whole group went to the Colosseum. We had a very interesting tour of said Colosseum( which is not it's real name).
Then we went on a walking tour through the Palatine, Capital Hill, the Forum, and then the Pantheon!
I had some of the most delicious gelato I think I will ever have in my life- Carmel Meringue! So good! After that it started to rain pretty hard while we were standing at the Fountain Nuovo. We got soaked and by the time we got to the Spanish Steps we were all ready to run to the hotel.
For dinner a friend and I went to a Pastaceria and had dessert- Cannoli. It was the best! I also had some strange kind of hot chocolate.
