Matt & I -

Matt and I decided for the last day of our honeymoon to visit the other iconic attractions of Rome and take in the beauty of this ancient city. We started our morning walking to Fontana di Treviย which had recently finished being renovated in 2015. It was absolutely breathtaking and fully restored to its original condition. Even though it was extremely crowded, it was well worth making our way to the front ย to get an unobstructed view of the architecture.

From there, we slowly made our way through the city, stopping along the way to enjoy one of our last Italian lattes. Before we went out to dinner, we came back to the hotel to enjoy an afternoon glass of wine on the rooftop and the 360 view of the city. It was nice taking a few hours to just relax and do nothing but lay under the sun out of the way of the bustling city below. I really wanted to city the Colosseum at sunset, so we gave ourselves an hour to get back across the city before the sun started to set. Personally, I think it was one of the best times to enjoy this attraction because the last of the tours had ended and the crowds had died down significantly. Next we headed back to Fontana di Trevi to admire the fountain at night before we ate our last meal of the honeymoon.

Even though I am sad our romantic getaway as husband and wife is coming to a close, I know Italy will always have my heart and I will find a way to get back to this beautiful country again soon.

I hope you enjoyed and I have already started mentally booking my next adventure to write about soon! xo
