Sunset from the rooftop of the Hotel Hassler
On to Rome! After four days in Capri we hopped back on the ferry and train and made the trek back to Rome. I’ve visited the majority of big European cities but never been to Rome, so I was really excited to spend some solid time there. I fell most in love with the architecture and gorgeous hues of the buildings (like most people I’m sure!) We hit all the tourist high points while we were there (the Vatican, Colosseum, Pantheon, and so on), but truthfully my favorite way to explore a big European city is just wandering around and sitting in cafés, getting to observe everyday life.
Can we get some vine covered streets in NYC please? Thanks.
A stroll through the Borghese Gardens. Does anyone know what kind of trees these are? I’m kind of obsessed with them! They look like broccoli stalks.
At the Colosseum. Excuse the messy hair!
A little rest at the Colosseum.
The view from lunch one day | Bridge locks- just like Paris!
Just one of the three weddings we spotted the Saturday we were in Rome. Isn’t the bride gorgeous? I especially love the dress of the bridesmaid on the right. So chic!
One of the many gorgeous church ceilings we saw.
Lighting a candle inside one of the churches.
I was obsessed with the interior of this museum- I loved the glow of the walls- it was so cozy. Since our visit I’ve been thinking of ways I can recreate this light in my home.
Outside a salumeria- I really love the built in wall hook for dog leashes!
My two favorite pieces from my dad’s show. He’s done a lot of piano sculptures over the years. He plays the piano, as do I- have I ever told you guys that?
All dressed up for the opening!
The dinner following the opening was held at the Villa Borghese. Here’s what it looks like during the day. It was pretty magical!
Woo I think that’s enough photos for today! Still to come though- an entire post dedicated to food (including restaurant recommendations), and I’m thinking of doing a post with tips for traveling in Europe. Would you guys find that helpful?
