Last and final day in Rome.
With no hesitation, we knew exactly where we were heading to breakfast.
We went back to Sant’Eustachio il Caffè. Another cappuccino and we are on our way.
Today will be shorter in writing because we spent about 5 hours walking through The Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
With that being said, the majority of this post will be pictures 🙂 Enjoy!
We walked for hours.
History on The Roman Forum: The city center of Ancient Rome. Religion, judicial events, and politics took place here. It became a natural gathering point for Roman citizens.
There was so much to see, and every corner had a new landmark that we had the opportunity to learn about.
As we began to exit the forum, we walked up steps near The Colosseum, and were able to see the most incredible sunset.
We watched as the sun dimmed and faded into night.
It was time to finally grab some dinner. A long day of walking around The Forum had us in the mood for some serious grub.
I found a place nearby called Ristorante Pizzeria Imperiale.
Only a 7 minute walk through some side streets from the Colosseum.
Although the tables were draped in white cloth, it wasn’t as expensive as it looked.
They sat us near a heat lamp in the corner and the service was incredible.
We ordered appetizers and fried mozzarella balls. A few courses in, and we were ready to head home.
As we were on our way back to our flat to pack, we knew there was one thing we haven’t had a chance to eat yet….a cannoli.
We passed a small bakery in a quiet neighborhood and decided to walk in.
It was the biggest cannoli I have ever seen, and the most delicious one I have ever had.
Finally, our time has come to pack our things.
Our journey to Naples was bright and early. I haven’t seen my family in 10 years.
I was too excited for words.
