Oh, Rome. What a CITY. It’s grand and beautiful and breathtaking… and it’ll give your heart rate a SERIOUS run for it’s money.
After Florence, we thought we knew what to expect in an Italian city. A little walking, a little site seeing, some good food… HA. Nice try kids.
The first thing we quickly realized after stepping off the train is that Rome is MASSIVE compared to Florence. Just the train station is enormous. So of course, we immediately got lost in the maze of Roman streets. After an hour of wandering, a spremuta pit stop to borrow some wifi, and some not so nice words exchanged (nobody said traveling as a couple was all peaches and roses people), we finally found our little airbnb. When we say little, we mean that quite literally. Our room was about the size of a respectable closet. BUT, it had AC and a bathroom, so we were happy :).
