So (May 30,2017) was our last full day in Rome. I didn't do a post yesterday on our first day in Rome because we traveled most the day, and were feeling very lethargic for some reason. We think it has to do with the pasta. It honestly makes me so tired, and I keep telling myself to order something else  (I've ordered it every night so far) but I guess I just don't have the strength inside of me to say no to pasta in Italy. So I will continue to just be tired the rest of the trip! Worth it haha. 

So anyways, our last day was wonderful. And we loved the idea of ending in Rome after a week of relaxing in the Amalfi.We started our day with a beautiful breakfast on the rooftop of our hotel, Portrait Roma. It is a beautiful, boutique hotel in the center of the city surrounded by all the high-end shops. There are only 16 rooms so they really take care of you and make you feel at home.

After breakfast we visited the Spanish Steps (only a block from our hotel) and Trevi Fountain. We didn't even attempt to take a picture or throw a coin because it was so unbelievably crowded, even in the morning.

We then took a cab to the Colosseum and spent an hour walking inside and reading about its history. We didn't do a tour guide because it is not typically my favorite thing, but I'm sure many would enjoy it. We wanted to go to the Vatican and Basilica after, but because it was Sunday, we were highly encouraged by the concierge at our hotel not to go. The Pope speaks on Sundays and she said the streets are so packed that it would be miserable. Side note: i'm also mildly claustrophobic so I was't even going to attempt. She also said the museum has free entrance the last Sunday of the month so it's even more crowded than usual. So, a little advice; don't try to tour the Vatican the last Sunday of the month!

Hey, there is always next time and we will be back very soon. We are sure of that!

We really wanted to take it easy the rest of the day so we walked around and shopped. We stopped for a beautiful lunch at the Hotel De Russie on their patio. It was refreshing and gorgeous. 

On the way back to the hotel we were craving gelato so we went to Venchi, and I got to say, I highly recommend getting gelato there when you are in Rome! Probably the best gelato we had all trip. I had the cone dipped in the chocolate and it was way too good. 

For dinner, we had a great last meal outside at Del Bolognese. Mainly, because Bolognese is one of my favorite foods and I wanted to see what the talk was about. And just like I thought, it was the best bolognese I had in Italy! Hands down. Gordon ordered their pistachio crusted lamb and it was out of this world. We danced our way back to the hotel listening to Italian music on our phone. We always make fools of ourselves but we never care.

It is definitely bittersweet to end this amazing honeymoon. I know many probably assume I (the girl) planned this extraordinary, out of this world trip. But nope. All my husband (with of course my opinions on major things). Because I was so busy planning the wedding, he went above and beyond planning everything for the honeymoon. I've got to say, the man has great taste. The hotel, restaurants, excursions... all were the best of the best. I'm lucky to have him us my husband. For sure. Now, I guess we are just going to go home and do what married people do:) We're excited to start the journey of normal married life together.
