Day 6: {Rome, Italy}

Our port today was right outside of Rome. Like yesterday, we joined another family to share the costs for a taxi and made our way to the many historical sites and monuments of this 'Eternal City.' Boy, talk about feeling like a tourist. At each stop, the crowds and lines were unbelievable with numerous tour groups at every corner. Traffic was bad, and the day just felt incredibly hectic. From the Colosseum to Piazza Navona to the Fountain of Four Rivers, we visited almost every site that Rome is known for. I probably enjoyed Piazza Navona the most, where we got to see a lot of local artists and their work, and had the BEST tiramisu we've ever had.

We ended our day with a visit to the Vatican. St. Peter's is truly amazing. It just leaves you in awe from the very minute you step foot inside.

Admittedly, we were a bit disappointed today. It's not that we don't enjoy architecture and history, but the experience itself (with the crowds and the rush) just did not suit as well.

  1. If I didn't love you so much I'd hate you right now! I'm green with envy. Looks like aside from the bad traffic you're having a fabulous time! Enjoy :)
