Italy: Rome

Italy was an absolute dream vacation, and I’ll tell you why: Gelato, Pasta, Siestas in the afternoon, not in any particular order. We didn’t over schedule our days with sites to see but rather focused on 1-2 things a day. When you don’t feel rushed, stressed, or burdened by plans, you end up doing more than you thought possible.  Our first stop was Rome, followed by the Island of Ischia and then a week in Tuscany.

In Rome we stayed at this Airbnb in the Trastevere neighborhood. This, in my opinion, is the best area in Rome because it quiet and residential yet still central and buzzing. All the major sites are within walking distance but the neighborhood feels secluded and romantic with the winding alleyways, cobblestone streets, and cute family-owned restaurants.
