VIA ROMA: When in Rome...

Location: Rome, Italy

CIAO!  I hope everyone had a great weekend! 

I was pondering on what I would like to blog about this week and it dawned on me that I actually do not have a  I single post on Rome from my recent trip to Europe. So I wanted to share with all of  you  two of my most favorite landmarks in the Eternal City. Perhaps it is my love for the movie Gladiator or the nostalgia that sets in when I am in Rome,  because no matter how many times I have been to this city,  visiting the Colosseum is always on my list.  I first laid eyes on this amazing arena twenty-one years ago and I remembered the first time I saw it, it literally stopped me in my tracks. To this day,  whenever I see in the  this amazing landmark I know then that I have arrived in Rome.

I was so fortunate to have been able to stay at The Inn at the Spanish Steps perched right on top of Via dei Condotti. I woke up early morning and looked outside, and snapped this picture. For the first time ever, the Spanish Steps was actually desolate except for a few early risers and a photo shoot happening. The Spanish Steps is the  most photographed steps in the world and therefore always swarmed with  tourists and locals. Just before heading to the Vatican, I relished in the moment and enjoyed the stillness of the morning. Buon giorno!

Thank you for reading!
