When in Rome: take a look around the old churches, admire the ancient architecture, eat lots of pasta and stay hydrated.
We went to the ancient city in the late-July heat, which made it almost unmanageable to go outside when the sun was at its high. We only stayed a couple of days and then continued on with our trip in Italy, but I thought I would share a few of the photographs. Rome is a beautiful city and is absolutely amazing for any architecture and art interested soul. We wandered around the city that is insanely large compared to small Copenhagen. My favorite area in Rome is the small streets filled with restaurants around Fontana di Trevi (the Trevi Fountain). Fresh seafood, homemade pasta and classic tunes filling the streets. It can’t get more Italian than that! Did I mention I love Italian food? I honestly cannot think of any food more comforting than pasta or seafood risotto. It must be in my genes: Italian and Asian foods are definitely my favorites.
As we were walking around the streets of Rome, we went by a few churches, which were not difficult to find as Rome is practically teeming with churches. There were something about Rome’s Catholic churches that fascinated me. Of course, we also went to the Vatican to see the St. Petersburg Church, which was just enormous and beautiful inside. As the days in Rome went by, off we went to new adventures to where the streets were less crowded and to where you could feel the wind breeze on your face in the summer heat: We went to the region of Abruzzo.
