Italy! Part 1

As you all might have seen, I haven't been around in a while. I studied abroad in Rome for two and a half weeks and lets just say that the WiFi wasn't all that cooperative. Apologies for the delay in posts, but I'm officially back and have tons to share! 

I'm obsessed with sitting by the window on planes, but unfortunately for me, my plane ride was 90% through the night so there wasn't much to see. However, after my only sleep over the 14 hour trip (maybe 30 minutes) I peaked out the window and saw this incredible view of the Swiss Alps. 

The first few days at the hotel were pretty awful. My roommate and I's air conditioner was broken, and after spending all day in the hot and humid city, it wasn't fun to come back to a room that seemed even more stuffy and warm. Eventually we changed rooms and the hotel became our safe haven. 

A couple times during the trip, when the hotel breakfast wasn't cutting it, me and my friend Maci ran next door to grab a delicious croissant! Guys, Italian Nutella is far superior to American Nutella. I don't think I've had a better croissant in my life.

On the first day we went to the Spanish Steps and had some amazing views to go with it!

It was a no-brainer that we had to visit the Colosseum! I'm not sure if you can tell, but my facial expression basically screams how hot and tired I was. 

We also saw the Pantheon, so breathtakingly beautiful. 

Unfortunately the Trevi Fountain is under restoration, so we couldn't really take the best pictures.

One of my favorite spots was the Doria Pamphilij Palace. So much incredible art. Plus, wouldn't you love to live in a house that had this as the main hallway?

A view from the Villa Borghese gardens! A definite must-see when in Rome, please ignore my sunburn haha.

The forum was the hottest place we visited. There was barely any shade, and we seemed to walk forever! Although it was definitely worth it for the history, I am a history major after all. 

Here are a few other pictures from my time in Rome.

I fell in love with this restaurant doorway.
