Rome, the legendary ancient city, has always had an aura of mystery to me. My mother would tell me that it was a dream of hers to visit it with my grandmother, from there my curiousity arose.
Initially I was not sure if I would be able to afford the €80 train ticket, but fortunately the TrainItalia was having a summer deal so I was able to buy the ticket for half off.
The day started off early and upon arriving in Rome it was around lunch time so I grabbed a panini before wandering the Coleseum.
After that I took the metro to the next stop, The Vatican City, where St. Peter's Basilica was utterly grand. Unfortunately the Sistine Chapel was closed so I did not get to see the famous paintings by Michalangelo.
The Trevi fountain was the last stop, where I sat by the edge of the pool for a couple of minutes and just enjoyed watching the water flow and even get splashed a bit.
Rome is an amazing city to explore, and I would love to return and see more of it.
