Rome Travel Dairy






Back in the beginning of May. Myself and my friend Alex took a trip to Rome for 3 nights for her birthday. If you have been reading my blog this year you will know that Italy has quickly become one of my favourite places to travel recently. We had a great time in Rome and I would highly recommend a trip if you have not been yet. The weather was super hot too...which meant we did need the odd chill out break during the day for ice cream and aspiral spritzer because we did a lot of walking! 

Rome has many big sites that are must see's.  I've been to a fair few different cities in Europe and I would say that Rome is one of the busiest especially in touristy areas so I would bear that in mind if you are planning a trip. The best way to get around Rome is the Metro we got a three day pass which I believe was 18 euros! Much cheaper than travelling around London. It was so easy to get around which is always a good thing when you are in a new city. 

In a way Rome gave me a similar feeling to New York on my first visit, I know they are completely different cities but I've seen all the sites so often in photographs and on TV, so it felt really exciting to finally get to see them in person.  The Colosseum and Roman Forum are two must sees. A good tip is to book guided tours for these, we booked ours on the day outside the Colosseum you will see lots of people walking around offering you different deals. I can't remember now what company we booked ours with, but it was a great tour and you can barter them down with the price too.

One of the best things about Italy is the food...I mean that's the main reason I visit Italy. We went to an amazing food market called Mercato Testaccio. (Their website is here.) They have 100s of fresh food stalls. I had pasta and a beer for about 6 euros, and I have to say I think it was one of the best pasta's I've ever had! I brought some pasta and pasta sauce home with me, I'm actually really gutted I didn't buy more as it was so tasty. The best way to get over those holiday blues is by bringing food back home with you!

Just like Milan we found an area just outside of the centre of Rome for food and drinks. (I'm so bad as I didn't write the name down, however just make sure you always go just outside of the city centre to discover some cute bars and quieter areas, which are much more affordable for food and drinks!)

I now really want to plan another trip to Italy next year...any recommendations would be great! 

Love
Nicole

  5. Hi victim of four loan scams in this year, I had given up all hope of finding a real lender on the internet until I came across the testimony of Mrs. Lopez Carine where she spoke of the loan she obtained from Mr Nato. At first I did not want to believe it but given the sincerity that she had put in it, I then decided to address my request for credit to this man who answered me in less time then we started the procedure, he told me at the start that he was not personally taking any costs. After 2 days of exchange I see myself receiving a transfer slip from the Bank of Mr Nato. It was like a dream but believe me thanks to this man I was able to save my child take an apartment and start a new life. For all those who are in need, contact him at: inforamzanloan@gmail.com / Whatsapp: +1(301) 329-5298 Above all, share your testimony after receiving your loan to save others
