Travel: A Weekend in Rome
For the next couple of weeks my wife and I are traveling around Europe. First stop...Rome! With only 3 days, we wanted to make the most of our time and see as much as possible. Below is a recap of our non stop itinerary in the Eternal City.
Overnight flight from Charlotte, NC (made better by the awesome tunes put together by our Music & Lifestyle department of course) / arrive in Rome @ 10AM / hotel check-in / Nap (even Italian espresso can't cure jet lag) / Trevi Fountain / great weather and outdoor seating for dinner = great first day of Rome.
A walk around ancient Rome / gelato / Vatican City / Vatican tour...the Pope loved the OMJ grey gingham I was wearing so much, he let us skip the line (ok, that didn't actually happen) / St. Peter's Basilica / Gianicolo Hill / Trestevere / Capitoline Hill / Spanish Steps (scouting future store locations for OMJ of course...right beside Valantino) / Piazza Nivaro / wow I am am getting tired just typing this.
The Pantheon / shopping / Colosseum tour (I have heard by many it is not as big as they expected...but this place is massive and you have to see it in person to truly appreciate it / Roman Forum /Palatine Hill / more gelato / dinner / bed
Well folks, that is how you do Rome in 3 days. Major props to my wife for tagging along and putting up with me every time I stopped to take pictures...which in addition to below can be found here. Had a great time, but glad to be moving on to what will hopefully be a slower change of pace. Next stop...Cinque Terre!
