This past weekend we headed to Rome. We stayed two nights and squeezed everything possible into the two days. We arrived in Rome on Saturday, we checked into our rooms and headed out. Dr. Bush gave us a walking tour of Rome, which I applaud her on. I had the best time seeing Rome. We visited some big landmarks and stopped for dinner on the way.
I do not remember the name of the restaurant, but the food was incredible. I had the Carbonara, which has become my favorite dish. My teacher recommended it before going to Rome and said that you will only find the best there. It was incredible, most of us ordered the Carbonara and loved it.
After we had dinner we walked to the Trevi Fountain. This was such a beautiful moment for everyone, especially because it was the last weekend of the trip and everyone was having a Lizzie McGuire moment. Chelsey and I had a surreal moment, we couldn’t believe we were in Rome and we realized how special this trip is.
On Sunday we had breakfast around 10am and headed downstairs to meet everyone. The Roman Coliseum was on our list for the day. It was weird walking up to the Coliseum, it didn’t feel real. It was larger than expected. The weather we had made the experience better. It was in the 50’s, so we didn’t need a jacket.
Once we went around the Coliseum, a small group of us went to the Forum. I didn’t know exactly what was there. But once Dr. Bush was telling us what everything was, it clicked. All of the things I learned in History make sense. It was a shock to how much was there. It was the main road where all the “important” romans walked. I thought this was so cool.
After the Forum we had dinner and walked around Rome. It was a short weekend, but everyone had the best time! Thank you Dr. Bush for everything!
