Walking Around Venice

After hopping on the train from Rome, it wasn’t long before we found ourselves walking around Venice. But before we get to that part, let’s rewind a little. After spending four days in Rome taking in as many sights and flavours as we could manage, we packed up our suitcase and made our way to […]

Visiting St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City

Visiting St Peter’s Basilica was something I almost didn’t do. After spending the morning exploring the Vatican Museums I very much had information fatigue and wasn’t sure I could take any more in. But it was our last full day in Rome which meant it was the only time S and I had left to […]

Vatican City Museums

“When in Rome.” It’s a sentence used by many. Whether as a dismissal for eating ”too much” pizza, devouring too much gelato (is there such a thing?) or when you wanna do something a little risky (or risque *wink wink*) and need an excuse for a lil’ encouragement. OR It’s a sentence that, when actually […]

St Peter’s Square, Vatican City

Featuring towering columns that surround you, almost like arms embracing you inside the world’s smallest country, is St Peter’s Square—otherwise known as Piazza San Pietro. Perhaps one of the most famous squares, St Peter’s Square has become quite the gathering spot for tourists—and with its location inside the Vatican City, just in front of St […]

Ragno D’oro

Ragna D’oro was a place that S found whilst we were in Rome.     It’s funny, when we’re in England S tends to leave the dining out options to me. I’ll usually get an “anywhere’s good”, an “I don’t mind” or a “wherever you want babe” when I ask where he’d like to go out […]

Roman Colosseum

You can’t picture Rome without the Colosseum. Tall, magnificent and steeped in history both culturally and visually. The Colosseum has been in films, music videos and fashion shows so the Colosseum, otherwise known as Colosseo, is quite the monument! It’s iconic. So it was a must that when S and I flew to Rome, that […]

Best Tiramisu in Rome

Finding the best tiramisu in Rome is a challenge I happily accepted. Even though it was a challenge that I very much gave to myself.     You see, after exploring the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, my plantar fasciitis (killer pain on the underneath of my foot) flared up, which very much put walking […]

Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Visiting the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill was something which occurred, somewhat, by accident. There we were roaming around, as one does whilst in Rome, when we came across the stairs to the Capitoline Museums. You see, whenever we travel S and I have a tendency to want to see certain areas and attractions, but […]

Trying Cannoli In Rome

Sampling my first cannoli in Rome was a messy experience. Ok, so technically I ate cannolo because I only ate one. But before we get to that, let’s rewind a little. I remember reading a post by Adventurous Kate a few years ago. I couldn’t tell you what the post was about, only that she […]

The Spanish Steps

Sitting on the Spanish steps in Rome, I couldn’t help but think about how steps can be such a key component to a story. They’re such an unassuming object, yet stairs can hold such significant meaning. When I was younger I would tip-toe down the stairs every December and perch just a few stairs up, listening to […]

Trevi Fountain Rome

Visiting the Trevi Fountain in Rome kind of feels like a right of passage when visiting Italy. I mean everybody’s done it, and because of that, it means you should too, right? RIGHT. But the thing you should know when visiting the Trevi Fountain in Rome is that you won’t be alone. Those Instagram pictures […]

Eating At Bonci Pizzarium

Bonci Pizzarium was a place I discovered thanks to the taste buds of one of my favourite foodies: Nikki. Nikki’s blog and taste buds have guided me in many of my city adventures, and Italy was no different. The minute I announced that S and I were heading to Rome, notifications popped up with recommendations […]

Visiting The Pantheon In Rome

Visiting the Pantheon in Rome was something that happened by accident.   You see, I do this thing where I don’t really research places I’m going to. I’ll have a brief look at the weather so I know what to pack, put out a few messages to foodie friends to see if there are any […]

Come il Latte – Rome’s Best Gelato?

Come il Latte was a place I discovered by accident. And “by accident” I mean it was a place I purposely sniffed out after sensing the sweet, sweet smell of freshly made waffle cones. You see, after arriving in Italy there was only one thing I wanted to do: eat. S and I had purposely […]

Last Minute Trip To Italy

Booking a last minute trip to Italy is pretty much my definition of fun. Well. Booking trips, in general, is my idea of fun—but last minute trips are that much more exciting and spontaneous. They can sometimes leave you in a bit of a tizzle if you don’t leave more than a few hours between booking a trip […]
