Back to Rome

After we got back to Rome, we hit the ground running : ) We had so many things that we wanted to see and only so much time left. It is amazing how quickly time runs out on vacation!

Our first morning back we went to the Colosseum! The history of this building is so interesting. It was really fun to learn more about; there was some crazy stuff going on in there! It is amazing how much of the building is still in tact over 2000 years later. This may have been my favorite place that we visited in Rome.


Can you just picture the floor of this place covered with intricate sets, exotic animals and gladiators fighting it out? Or even flooded for a sea battle? It seems so crazy that it actually happened, but after being there and reading all about it, it started to be not quite so hard to imagine. It was a fascinating tour!


Us in front of a famous site… Christian's very favorite ; )


We went to the Pantheon



And enjoyed a lot of amazing gelato! Oh my goodness was the gelato there amazing. I think part of the reason it is so delicious is because it is so hot and humid! But every time we got some (which was almost every day...) it was pure deliciousness. My favorite flavors that I tried were pistachio (so different from our fake pistachio flavor!), chocolate, biscotti and cream. So fresh and so delicious!


There was always a beautiful fountain to enjoy a gelato by. Every few feet there was another gorgeous fountain. No exaggeration! I also had a lot of fun with the lenses Christian had for his phone. They are so fun! I think I need to get some (hint, hint…;)


We went to the Vatican Museum


And the Sistine Chapel. It was even more amazing than I could have imagined. Christian and I sat in the chapel for so long, trying to take in as much as we could. I loved it in there so much and loved trying to find the stories behind all of the paintings. We weren't allowed to take pictures, but I found this one that I just had to include. I had no idea just how intricate and extensive it was. We got lost in it. I was dizzy when we left from looking up for so long!


We went to St Peter's Basillica,



And were completely captivated by Michelangelo's Pietà.


My favorite part of being in Vatican City was mailing my catholic grandma and postcard right from the Vatican. It was so fun! : )


Our very last morning there, we woke up early and went over to the Trevi Fountain to try and see it sans piles and piles of other people. Mission accomplished! We got there just right before they even turned the fountain on for the day ; ) It was really neat to get to see the whole thing with just us there.


We dashed over to the Spanish Steps from the fountain to see if we could see the steps underneath all of the people, and were happily surprised to find them almost completely empty. They are just lovely.


But it only lasted for a minute or two. After we took this picture a couple of tour groups showed up. It was definitely worth getting up early for : )


We tried hard to savor our last meals there, enjoying the leisure in which we could eat. That really is one of my favorite things about being on vacation. I love sitting and talking with Christian over some amazing food, taking in our surroundings : ) The mozzarella in Italy was incredible. I do not have words to describe how good the balsamic vinegar or olive oil is. I loved how fresh everything we ate there was. Sooo yummy!


Then we had to wake up crazy early the next morning to get on our flight home. Leaving is always so bittersweet. I'm always so excited to see my kids, but so sad to leave the freedom and luxurious living of a vacation behind.

I could not have loved this vacation more. It was so fun to be in such a beautiful and historical place with Christian, to spend so much time together and get to think about how similar yet different we are since our honeymoon 10 years ago. So different, yet so the same : ) I can't wait to compare things in another 10 years!

And go on another vacation… I have seriously been bitten by the traveling bug! ; ) Any recommendations on where to go next?

I love this! I feel like I learned a ton from reading your descriptions of everything you saw. I love your artist husband too! He knows what to see and how to interpret it. Maybe we can go to Rome togeher with you guys as tour guides!
