To Rome, with Love
Over the weekend I had the chance to visit Rome again after almost two years. Rome, Italy will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the city that opened my eyes to the beauty of travel. To me, Rome is where is all began. When I first arrived in Rome, I was excited to experience Europe and dive into a new culture. It was the first time I was away from home and out of the country by myself. Rome gave me the opportunity to grow and understand myself in a deeper sense.
Walking the streets of my old neighborhood and walking by the ancient monuments all over the city gave me such nostalgia. My experience in Rome taught me so much and truly helped shaped me into the person I am today.
Rome is an incredible city and although it may seem overwhelming, seeing the highlights of the city can be done in one day! From Florence it’s a quick hour and a half train ride. I left Florence around 6am and had the entire day to go back to some old places to reminisce as well as experience Rome in a new way. Some of my favorite spots are the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the Trastevere neighborhood.
