Eurotrip – Rome, Italy

We originally had no intention on making a stop in Rome. But, we needed to make a stop somewhere between Southern and Northern Italy on our trip back North. Our first little piece of advice… don’t drive a full sized car in Rome!! If you have ever been there, you know what we are talking about. I am pretty sure there aren’t any defined lanes. More or less, a free for all with A LOT of traffic and A LOT of scooters zooming in between cars. 

Since we were only in Rome for one evening, we decided just to hit a couple touristy spots and then have a nice relaxing evening. After finding a place to park (good luck with this lol) and getting checked into our bed and breakfast, we headed out for some food. Nick, being a car/motorcycle guy, saw a Ducati cafe and it was a must stop for some quick food. From there we were headed towards The Colosseum. We were unaware of what time they closed and luckily made it JUST in time. We literally were the last ones through the gates as they were closing for the day. That being said, no new visitors were coming in. People were only leaving, which made the normally packed tourist attraction quite a bit more enjoyable as we pretty much had it to ourselves by the time everyone had to be out. From there, we were headed back to the b&b, but had to stop for a beer on the way. That evening we ended up heading back out for dinner in the Campo de’ Fiori area.

Overall Rome turned out to be an amazing little stop with a ton of history. If you are passing through, it’s definitely worth the stop for a couple of days.
