A Travel Guide to Rome

22.1.18

Location: London, UK



Rome is THE most beautiful place I have ever been to. I recently went away with my friends from university and had an absolute blast. Just like when I went to Barcelona, I really want to put together a travel guide to Rome. We spent a week eating our way through the city and seeing some of the places I've always dreamed of visiting.

STAY.


Airbnb - We stayed in a lovely Airbnb. Before we went, we thought it was going to have these beautiful balconies with gorgeous views. When we arrived, workmen woke us up abruptly at 7am every day.

EATS.

Eataly - We went to Eataly on day one, it's a giant Italian food store where you can buy fresh veggies and pasta amongst many other foods. There was this lovely food hall on one of the higher levels where I got a delicious pizza. 

150 Gelato: There are literally 150 different flavours of ice cream!! I was overwhelmed. If you're near the pantheon, you can walk here quite easily and there's no way you won't be able to find something you'll love. 


Antico Carlone: This is the best carbonara you will ever have in your life. It wasn't touristy at all and I regularly think about the pasta I ate there. It's a meal I will never forget. If you're in Rome, you have got to go and try the carbonara. 

PLAY.

Vicolo de' Clinque: If you just fancy a drink in a lively bar then head to this street at night in Trastevere, there are loads of lovely bars to sit and have some nice cocktails. 

SIGHTS.

Rome has some of the most iconic landmarks to take in. Here are some of the places I managed to see.
Pantheon: This place is very impressive and beautiful and packed full of history. We took the audio tour and got to learn about some of the legends.

Spanish Steps: It was very busy here but if you climb to the very top, the view is insane. There's a lovely boutique hotel up there too. We went and had a couple drinks and watched the sunset. The manager was very merry and brought us lots of lovely cocktails to try.

Colosseum: When you think of Rome, the Colosseum is the place you think of. It's very grand in person. Across the road, I had the best Aperol spritz in a little cafe across the road. 

Trevi Fountain: Anyone that has watched the Lizzie McGuire movie will know this fountain. It was beautiful, it was quite surreal to see it in person and throw a coin in and make a wish.

Sistine ChapelSaint Peter's BasilicaThe Vatican Museums: This was my favourite part of the trip. We found a tour guide package and got a guided tour of all of these places. Sistine chapel was incredible.
