Rome holiday itinerary, day 5: More things to do in Rome

As we were getting closer to the end of our Roman holiday, we had more time to spare for unplanned things.  And we ended up wondering what is there to do in Rome after all the places we had already been to.

So on Monday morning  we were back on the subway, heading to Ottaviano once again. When we visited the Vatican, we walked by Museo Leonardo Da Vinci Experience, and I promised Mathieu we’d go back to visit it before we go back home.

Rome holiday itinerary, day 3: Exploring more of Rome’s historic center

Although we started the third day of our Rome holiday early in the morning, it was in no way as intense as our second day. However, it was every bit as wonderful. After all, we were about to explore some more of Rome’s historic center!

The plan was to start with the Pantheon. But, surprise-surprise, we set off to conquer Rome too early and the Pantheon was still closed! So we had some time to slowly wake up and truly become all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Rome holiday itinerary, day 2: Walking from Vatican City to Trastevere

If you thought we covered a lot on the first day, think again! The second day of our Rome holiday was probably the toughest, but also the most amazing. We walked from Vatican City to Trastevere, starting early in the morning, and finishing after nightfall. However, we took plenty of breaks to enjoy the beautiful views over Rome, grab a bite or have a drink.

Rome holiday itinerary, day 1: Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill

This year both Mathieu and I turn 30. For his birthday, in April, I wanted to do something special and go travel somewhere together. He had never been to Italy, which I love, so, in the end, I decided on a Rome holiday. This involved a lot of planning: there’s so much to see in Rome and there were so many places I wanted to show him! However, I allowed plenty of time to just enjoy the moment, stop for a drink or whatever else we felt like doing.
