When In Rome

A trip to Europe is never complete without a visit to one of the most famous cities in the world: Rome. Also called the City of Lights, Rome has a very rich history dating back to 783 BC! Rome was actually the 4th to the last stop of my 31 day European journey. I have to admit I was a bit tired at this stage, but WHEN IN ROME, oakley sunglasses outlet I couldn’t afford to sleep in! In this post, I’d be highlighting things and places one must do WHEN IN ROME! From the Gladiators of the Coliseum, to wishing in the Trevi Fountain, and visiting countless gelato parlours, there’s really so much to do in Rome!

If it’s your first time in Rome, you would definitely want to visit the Coliseum, the largest amphitheatre in the world and home to the world-famous Gladiators! If you wanna save time I suggest you go to the Coliseum as early as possible. Hmm let’s say around 7am? Lines in famous attractions in Rome are ridiculously long, so going early would save you heaps of time!

 Why not visit the Coliseum at night?

After visiting the Coliseum, right beside it is the Roman Forum. It is unbelievable that a huge part of an ancient city remains wholesale nfl jerseys preserved at the heart of Rome. Without taking any transport, this place is a must visit as you take a stroll along the burial sites of Julius Caesar and the Office of the Senate during the Steam Roman Empire!

Next up is the world-famous Trevi Fountain! It’s crazy how much people visit the fountain every day to make a wish. My personal tip would cheap jordans online be to Wholesale NFL Jerseys visit early morning or night time to avoid the flock of people and to get better photos with the fountain!

Just a stroll away from the Trevi Fountain is what you’ve all been waiting for: The World’s BEST Gelato (that’s according to our Roman guide hehe). But a visit to Rome wouldn’t be complete without trying out Italian Gelato!

This place called Il Gelato Di San Crispino is located very close to the Trevi Fountain and serves mouth-watering to die for Gelato! At first I was a bit sceptical, but once I got to try out their Gelatos I was left speechless.

This Gelato Parlour has been constantly awarded and recognized over the years . Just look at all those stickers  in the door!

They also have different temperatures for their different flavors just to keep the texture and temperature right. This also ensures that the ice cream automatically melts in your mouth once you take that first bite.
