When In Rome : Travel Recap

I’m back in the states and so excited to share photos from Rome, Italy! I was only there for 3 days so I’m extremely exhausted but I had an amazing trip. Rome is such a beautiful city filled with culture and amazing art. I highly encourage you to visit, you won’t be disappointed.

The first day consisted of a visit to the Colosseum to discover Ancient Rome, delicious authentic Italian food in Vatican City, and then I finished off the day at the Fontana di Trevi (Trevi Fountain).

So I had a bit of a misunderstanding with the Trevi Fountain myths. Before arriving we read that you were supposed to toss 1 coin over your right shoulder. We had it so wrong hahaha!! We later found out that the actual ritual was to toss 3 coins with your right hand over your left shoulder. The first coin guarantees your return to Rome, the second will ensure a new romance, and the third will ensure marriage. On the brighter side of me not getting a new romance; the coins in the Trevi Fountain go towards a better cause than my own wishes. The city of Rome donates the coins thrown in the Trevi Fountain to charity (averaging at about 3,000 euros a night). Maybe sacrificing my new romance wasn’t so bad after all.

    Cool trip. Well being that you only tossed one coin in the fountain, that means you will return to Rome but I don’t have to worry about the latter two myths. So you will always be my baby girl. Nice. ????
