Rome: Trevi Fountain & Spanish Steps

So yesterday, Sam and I flew home from Rome which was his 29th Birthday present from me, which was back in June. We spent Monday - Friday there, which was maybe a tiny little bit too long but we weren't complaining because the weather was beautiful and we just enjoyed relaxing in the city.

I haven't blogged in a while (broken record, I know) but I thought this might be a good way to make a little come back. I struggle sometimes because I feel like my life is a little boring and routine-y, but Sam and I have a big year next year and it might be cool to write about it.

Anyway, I've pulled together 3 posts from Rome, this one included. We arrived on Monday pretty early and headed to our Airbnb which was one of the best I've ever stayed in. It was a little studio apartment which was so funky, I loved it. We went for lunch (both ate pizzas the size of our heads) and then just wandered around the city, exploring some of the sights.

Pictured above is Fontana di Trevi (Trevi fountain), which is one of the most famous fountains in Rome. It was really beautiful but it was sooooo busy. We managed to get some good photos and a selfie whilst battling other tourists and people selling random items to us which I think is the most annoying thing on the planet.

We then headed to the Spanish Steps, again just to get a photo really because it was so busy with tourists.

After this, we just spent the late afternoon strolling. We sat in a park with a drink for a while, cooking in the 30 degree sun and people watching. It was actually so nice to feel the warmth and sit down as we ended up walking about 8 miles.

The architecture reminded me of Budapest, and Rome has so much history that has made me want to read more about it (in all my spare time lol). We did some guided tours, which I'll mention in the other posts, on the following days which was far more helpful as we didn't really know what things were when just randomly walking.

Having said that, I managed to stumble into sephora and spend 70 euros on Nars make up so wasn't all that bad...
