I felt nostalgic minutes after landing in Fiumicino Aeroport to visit Rome with my API program. After spending the month of January living, working, and exploring Rome, I always told myself I would return one day. Even though we were only in Rome for a few days, I was fortunate to eat at my favorite restaurant in the city (Nonna Betta, Via del Portico d’Ottavia 16, in the Ghetto di Roma), and see some familiar sights (the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Vittoriano, Via del Corso, the Vatican City, and the Trastevere neighborhood). My group stayed in the Hotel Tiziano (Corso Vittorio Emanuele II 110) near the Largo di Torre Argentina, the perfect location for traveling the city.
If you’re traveling to Rome soon, I recommend the following sites/restaurants in addition to those listed above: Mimì e Cocò (Via del Governo Vecchio 72), Don Nino pastries (Vio dei Pastini 134), and spending 12€ to tour the inside of the Colosseum. Check out pictures from my trip below!
Places we've gone, things we've seen, stories worth telling
