Last days in Rome then off to Florence!

sunny 25 °C

So in the last two days in Rome we crammed in soooooo much, all together we did the Colloseum, Palentine Hill, Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps, Pantheon, Vatican city and Sistine Chapel. Never walked so much in my life! It was nice to see some things during the day and then go back at night, such a different feeling. Shannon, Leah and I took a carriage ride from the Spanish steps around to the trevi fountain and a couple other places on Thursday night with our water bottles full of wine. Lol grabbed some gelato, very romantic I must say haha. Then woke up super early on Friday to do the Vatican City. Took the metro there and walked in the stiffling heat to the Vatican Museum. Had a nice little picnic for lunch in the courtyard of all the museums which took FOREVER to get through. Apparently if you took one minute to look at each piece in all of the Vatican Museum it would take you 12 years to get through it. So spent a few hours there and then hit the Sistine Chapel which wasn't quite what we expected but still beautiful. Headed to the grocery store and grabbed some food and drinks, went back to the room and showered and ate and then went out for our last nice dinner in Rome, had some great pasta and bruchetta.... mmm so good and fresh! Went to an Irish pub for a drink but there were some really persistent italian chauchies lol so we left after our first drink. Woke up today (June 20th) and packed all of our things and went to the Termini train station for lunch and ALMOST missed our train because the woman we reserved seats through didnt tell us we're supposed to take the train to Milan and just get off at the florence station lol I finally figured it out and we got on with about 2 mins to spare. Had a nice train ride to Florence and just arrived at our hostel the Emerald Field. We're just going to head out for an all you can eat Italian dinner mmmmm.... missing everyone <3
