Two weeks in Italy: First time travel
Published: Sep, 2020 | Travel Date: Aug - Sep 2019
Delicious food? Wonderful people? Stunning nature? We've found all of this during our first two-weeks trip to Italy. It was pretty difficult to choose between the cities and places to visit, because we wanted to both relax and to see all the sightseeing which is Italy popular for, to try all the great food they serve and to see these wonderful and friendly people.
It would've been a pity not to visit Roma in the first trip to Italy, so we did it! Some can say that four days is very few days, but we've spend them wisely, visited most of the "must go" places and had several beautiful dinners afterwards.
Arnobio Vatican Suites
Wonderful place with a super-friendly and helpful host. It's a bit out of the city-center, so you probably would need to use bus. However, not too far from the Vatican.
Activities and Sights
A "must to go" place in Roma. We've bought tickets beforehand using: coopculture.it and also visited Roman Forum.
Spanish Steps, Piazza di Spagna
It was too crowded during the day. I'd suggest going there in the early morning.
Too crowded during the day. Come here in the morning. The fountain itself is marvelous!
An another must-to-go place. It's impossible to write about this place, you have to see it yourself. Going there another time, I would prefer night excursion, because it's very crowded during the day. Make sure to buy tickets in advance, we've used tickets.museivaticani.va for that..
We've been there in the evening, almost before the closure. Enjoyed this place very much.
La Sagra del Vino da Candido
Beautiful restaurant with traditional Roma cuisine. Don't look for any pizza here!
Salvatore Di Matteo Le Gourmet
Delicious Naples style restaurant. One of the most delicious pizza we've tried during our trip. This place was recommended by our apartment's host.
Castel Romano outlet
A half-day tour to one of the biggest outlets around Roma.
Beautiful square with fountains.
