After Florence it was off to Rome! It was the city I was in all honesty least looking forward to. It was by far the most crowded place we had been, which in all honesty is probably in large part because we went to the most popular of the tourist attractions. The Colloseum, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, and of course the Vatican were all a part of our must see locations, along with every other tourist in town.
They were each beautiful in their own respect, but it was hard to have a true experience with so many people around you. We tried to get off the beaten path as often as we could, walking around on our own and off the main roads.
In Rome it was my mission to find the best cacio e pepe in town! We didn’t have a lot of opportunity for taste testing because we were only there for two days, but Joe did manage to find us a pretty good restaurant with the delicious dish (though I have to admit, I am much more partial to the recipe out of Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook).
I wore this dress which felt perfect for the city. It was comfortable and I love the style (it’s very forgiving after lots of pasta and wine). I got it from the Loft Outlet, so I couldn’t find it online, but I also like this similar seersucker one, this brightly colored one also from the Loft, as well as this wrap neck dress, here and this floral one, here. You may have also noticed that I wore these sandals all over Italy. They were truly amazing. I walked all around Rome, Florence, and Positano and they held up wonderfully.
I’m glad we went to Rome and saw everything we did. It’s definitely a must do, because, when in Rome! And the next time, I will continue on my mission for that cacio e pepe!
