O’Brien Family Italian Adventure: Day 7

Today was a chill day checking out more sites in Rome. We visited the Trevi Fountain and had pizza and Gelato along the way. Then we walked down little streets taking it all in. We went to the Spanish steps too.

We had a little rest in the afternoon before heading to dinner. The boys had pizza again!!! (they are becoming pizza experts) and more Gelato! I had a really good crepe.

It was fun to have no plan and just wander around- not a bad way to start the New Year!!

PS There were lots of fireworks last night!!!

O’Brien Family Italian Adventure: Day 6

Today was a really fun day of exploring. We took the Rome Hop on Hop off tour to see the sites and hear more about the city. There was also a marathon going on! We toured the Coliseum- it was crazy and confusing, but very cool once we got inside!

We then visited with my high school teacher, Sr. Marie who lives in Rome. It was so nice to see her!

Dinner was next (pizza of course) and some dessert (had to). We wandered around a bit and found the Trevi Fountain.

It’s New Year’s Eve so there’s been lots of fireworks and people celebrating! Happy New Year from Rome!

O’Brien Family Italian Adventure: Day 5

Today was a travel day. We left our amazing place in Florence and headed out to take a train to Rome. But first the boys had gelato (finally!). We arrived in Rome and found our new home for the next few days. It’s beautiful!!

After settling in – and getting pizza for lunch – Chris, Paul and Heather headed out to find a local laundromat. When they returned we went to the local supermarket to pick up food for the next few days and dinner. We decided on a quiet dinner in after all our traveling. We had pasta of course.

Looking forward to seeing the sites in Rome tomorrow!
