My Trip to Italy: Part Three

Roman Holiday

After spending several wonderful days on Sicily, we moved onto Rome.  Rome was lovely.  Although a very busy city with lots of tourist traps, there is still much to be enjoyed.  Scattered all over Rome are ancient buildings.  It was incredibly moving to be surrounded by so many famous historical sites at once.

The Roman Forum.

I highly suggest viewing the Roman Forum from a lookout point; it was so interesting getting to see the different layers of Roman history.

Here are my parents and I in the Colosseum.

The Colosseum was far more vast and impressive than I had imagined.  Picturing what it was like in its glory days was almost overwhelming.

For this outfit, I buttoned my shirt about halfway down and then tied the unbuttoned parts into a knot.  I felt very Italiana, you know, besides the American accent and blonde hair.

Here I am in front of the Fontana di Trevi, which was especially beautiful.  Unfortunately, I did not get my La Dolce Vita moment, but, nevertheless, the fountain was still amazing.  I actually purchased the top I am wearing the last time I was in Italy, when I was visiting Milan.

Making my wish!

About to toss my coin into the fountain.

And, of course, since I love flowers, I had to take a picture by this street-side flower shop. It makes me want to open one myself!

The ceiling of the Pantheon.

The Pantheon was a highlight of my visit to Rome, and it is a site that is often overlooked.  For a building so old, it is in impeccable condition.
