Rome

After an adventure trip that began up with me not being allowed onto the flight on account of forgetting my passport, I spent 2 days in Venice and then headed to Rome, a city full of gorgeous alleyways, cool drinking water fountains, rich history hiding in plain sight in every nook and corner and the incredibly delicious Ice-Creams (of which I had more in 3 days than I had an entire year)

The Colosseum was my first stop in the city, one I have been meaning to visit for very long time.

Altair of the Fatherland was visible as an imposing structure right from the Colosseo, so I took a walk there

After taking some pictures I started wandering around the city basking in the gorgeous golden evening sun

And ended my day by accidentally stumbling across a cozy Pizzeria in a narrow roman alleyway with an amazing pizza, where I had the 2nd best pizza of my entire life; the 1st being a pizza I had on the Burano Island in Venice. Further attempts to rediscover the same pizzeria in Rome over the next few days ended in failure.

Day 2 started with me checking off an item in my bucket list with a visit to The Roman Pantheon. The very thought of standing in front of an imposing and intact two millennia old structure, gave me goosebumps.

After a quick failed hunt for the Pizzeria where I ate the previous day, I settled for some coffee and pizza at another restaurant.

Then took to the streets yet again with some friends to see the stunning city scapes
