Explicit Travels // Rome

We lived a block away from Via dei Condotti. I must admit it is one of my favorite streets in Rome. It holds a lot of major designer stores and is overlooked by the Spanish Steps. I couldn't have asked for a better location to stay in. Our apartment was in between Vatican City and the Colosseum with about a 30 minute walk each way. If walking is not your thing, there is a metro station at Spagna (Spanish Steps). There were a lot of good restaurants within walking distance and it was quite at night. If I ever come back to room, I know which neighborhood I'll be staying at again. (More photos to come in my next outfit post!)

La Prosciutteria Trevi - My boyfriend and I finally went out for a date while my mom and brother just stayed at our Airbnb. It was a short 10 minute walk away and we were greeted by the friendliest workers and tiny tiny tables in a very tiny restaurant. There is no space to put your wine cups on the table so there were little hooks for cups. It was literally the cutest thing ever. While the store was tiny, the platters were quite the opposite. I definitely recommend trying their platters with a wine on the side, have hearty conversations with good company, and it will be the best night of your life. 

St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City - we waited on a hefty security line to enter the biggest basilica in the world. It was definitely grand and this picture does not do it justice. Everything from the marble to the statues and alter -- breathtaking. 
Vatican Museum - There were a ton of beautiful ceilings inside the museum. My neck was starting to ache by the time I wen to see Michelangelo's 'Creation of Adam' painting. Because photos were not allowed in the Sistine Chapel where the painting was located, I nominate this ceiling as my next favorite ceiling.

Trevi Fountain - We visited this landmark about 4 times because it was just so close to where we stayed. I tossed a coin in their the first time I visited. I'll be back Rome!
