As soon as we landed in Italy and dropped our bags at the hotel there was only one thing left to do... PIZZA!

The colosseum was beautiful and the architecture was outstanding. It was so crazy to imagine all the events that happened in that building 2000 years ago. I think the colosseum is a must for anyone visiting Rome.

The next day was my birthday!! So we headed to Vatican City to have a private tour around the Vatican.
Top Tip: I HIGHLY recommend booking to have a private tour around the Vatican - otherwise you will be queueing for ages and the queue to get in was huuuge. Also our private tour guide was very knowledgable and we learnt a crazy amount.
Unfortunately photography is not permitted in the Sistine Chapel so I don't have any pictures of Micheal Angelo's stunning ceiling, not that pictures would have done it justice.

Day 3 - Our last day
Our final day in Rome was a chilled one which we spent having a wander around cute little gift shops and eating ice cream.
We found the most amazing ice cream parlour called 'Della Palma', serving over 150 different flavours! I don't think you can really tell from the photo but the ice creams were MASSIVE (mine was a small) so you really get your moneys worth.
We also had a look inside the Pantheon as it was practically next to our hotel.
We had another fantastic dinner at a restaurant just off one of the many squares - all the squares are lined with lovely little restaurants and give you the option to dine alfresco thanks to big flame heaters.
I am already itching to get back to Rome. It was a beautiful city, offering history, art, culture and amazing food at every corner.
