After having visited Rome last year, we knew that we couldn’t go to Italy without spending another few days in this amazing city. Since we’d already covered the main sights on our previous trip, we didn’t feel as much of a rush repeating it on this year.
Below are a few of the highlights.
St. Peter’s Basilica
Okay, so we’d covered nearly all the main sights. St. Peter’s Basilica was the one attraction that we didn’t get to see last time, mainly due to poor planning. This time we went straight there after breakfast and the line wasn’t bad at all. It’s also much more comfortable to queue outside at 9am, rather then 1pm due to the scorching sun, and after 30 minutes we were inside.
Was it worth the wait. YES! This is probably one of the most spectacular buildings we’d ever seen. There are no pictures from inside the cathedral because we wanted to enjoy the scenery without the obstruction of a camera lens.
Restaurants in Rome
We have plans to do a separate post on “Eating in Rome”, so I won’t go into too much detail here other then to mention two really cool places that we visited; Sacro e Profano and Cavor.
Sacro e Profano is a pizzeria housed in a converted church, hence the name. The pizza is great, but the scenery is why you should go there. It’s not far from the Trevi Fountain.
Cavor was the restaurant we enjoyed the most last year, which is why we wanted to go back. They serve great italian ham and sausages and the atmosphere and staff are great. Location is not far from the Colosseum, so it’s also a great place to have dinner and then see the Colosseum-by-night.
