Italy: Rome, a City of Sun, Food and Art

Sunny Rome

The food enthusiast in me was thrilled at the prospect of spending a week in Rome – and I was not disappointed. A friend from Rome shared invaluable restaurant tips that proved incredibly helpful. I dined at authentic trattorias where I was often the only foreigner, indulging in delightful pastas and what I can confidently claim to be the best tiramisu on earth (I even had two servings, so please don’t judge – you’d have done the same).

Rome is the perfect city to wander around and get lost in. Its light and colors are simply stunning, and every corner is photogenic. The museums in Vatican City are definitely worth a visit, especially the Sistine Chapel where the Conclaves take place.

I was amazed by the art, architecture, and symbolism of this place. I admired Michelangelo’s frescoes, Bernini’s sculptures, and Raphael’s paintings. I also visited Saint Peter’s Basilica, the largest and most important church in the world. Its beautiful afternoon light and peaceful atmosphere made it a highlight of my visit.
