After a few days in Florence, we took a (very long) train ride to Rome. We really only had one full day in Rome and I was determined to make the most of it. We started at the Colosseum which is amazing. The fact that it has been around for so long and there’s so much history with it baffles me. It was (again) insanely hot so I wanted something flowy to be able to be comfortable. After the Colosseum we went to the Forum, which again was amazing. We had a quick lunch and then it was off to the Trevi Fountain, WHICH WAS CLOSED, for construction, but still. After way to much gelato and a short rain, we arrived at the Spanish Steps. We were able to see all the main sights during the day and then we also did a night tour to see the city in a different light. It was like another world and it was magical. All in all, it was an amazing trip and I enjoyed every moment of it!
London Day 3:
Day 3 was all about sightseeing. We started bright and early at the Changing of the Guard. It was insanely crowded and we ended up leaving a little bit early since it was so hard to see anything (and people are rude). We then went to the Royal Muse to look at all the Queen’s Carriages. Of course, I had to ask which one Kate and Will rode in, but they didn’t have it. However, they did have the one Harry and Pippa rode in, so that sufficed (pictured below). From there we went to Selfridges to shop and get some nosh (there’s my British Slang). They had the coolest roof-top terrace for lunch and it was quite delicious. From lunch, dad and I said our goodbyes to mom as she had a business call, so we went where anyone else in London would… Parliament. We also explored the London Eye, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and then had a lovely (and HOT) walk back towards Buckingham Palace and eventually to our hotel. We ended this fun day at Tom’s Kitchen, where mom and I had once read Kate and Will ate, so obviously we had to too. They have some of the best fish & chips, I highly recommend it!
