May Meets Rome

I can’t believe we’ve been in Italy over a week already!! We have been having such a wonderful time on our Italian adventure. After spending several days seeing the sites in Florence, we are now  slowly eating our way through Rome.  This sprawling city is the capital of Italy and nearly 3,000 years old. We have walked between 5-8 miles everyday trying to soak it all in, and have loved every minute. Some of our best moments have been spent sitting at little outdoor cafes with our favorite gelato or a cappuccino, and simply people watching. Today we are taking a train to Pompeii  for a tour, and then to the beautiful coastal town of Sorrento before we have to say Arrivederci to one of our favorite destinations.

An amazing meal that we had at a vineyard on the outskirts of Rome

This is how the cars park when there isn’t enough room to parallel park. Our guide said in Italy the street signs are for decoration only, because no one follows them. She also said the traffic is crazy here, so every time you cross the street you should do a sign of the cross….because you never know. 

Have a great week! ~May
