Starting out our day we got off the boat and headed straight to the train station. The train took us into the heart of Rome. The first stop we took was to see the Vatican. It was one of the most interesting buildings I have ever been in. With handpainted walls and ceilings that are centuries old. Although for having a limited time in Rome it took up the majority of our time. We spent a solid 2 hours inside, with no air conditioning in the heat of the summer.
After visiting the Vatican we headed over to a huge disappointment. We went to see the gorgeous Trevi Fountain. Unfortunately it was under construction. The whole fountain was drained and covered.
We proceed to find a spot to eat lunch. For the first time I had authentic Italian food!
After lunch we decided to explore the city! We walked to the streets and we visited the spanish steps! I am bummed because we didn’t reach the colosseum which was probably something I was most excited for. Although I did take some awesome pictures whilst enjoying the perfect streets of Rome.
We then made it full circle back to the train station and got on the train for our hour journey back to the boat.
