Like I previously mentioned, Deo and I went away for a couple of days. We escaped to Rome, Italy from Monday to Wednesday to celebrate his 29th birthday. 29th of November for his 29th birthday. Sounds like something to celebrate for. The plan was not to have a romantic trip solely, but we really wanted to see Rome like tourists. Although we did have a nice dinner in front of Pantheon with a romantic live music.
What we usually opted for when we go to a foreign city is a hop on hop off bus. Not only you can see everything, but the information that’s given during the tour is very interesting. By no means it covers in depth level of knowledge, but it puts more depth into sight seeing compare to just walking around. We also booked a guided tour for inside the Colosseum as well as for the Palatine Hill. I think I can say for the both of us, it was well worth the money. The guide was also offering another tour for the Vatican city but unfortunately, we had to head back to The Netherlands that day.
Three days weren’t nearly enough to cover the beauty of Rome and to absorb all the history. But it was a good trip nonetheless. And one day, we plan on coming back. Maybe during the warmer months because it was bloody cold there!
