During our city trip in Rome, we also visited Vatican city. I thought this was just a city in Rome, but the Vatican actually is a country! We officially left Italy when we went there during our trip. It is the smallest independent state in the world, how cool! We went to see the Vatican museums and the St. Peter’s Basilica. Both were very impressive.
I visited Rome for the first time a couple of months ago together with my boyfriend, and immediately fell in love with this city. Rome is the capital city of Italy, and the home of the Vatican and the Papacy. Rome is a cultural and historical focus within Europe. After more than 2000 years in existence, there’s enough to explore here. There is so much to see! We went to Rome as a citytrip for 3 days and didn’t get bored one second. We visited the colosseum, which has a long and bloody history, and the ancient ruins at the roman forum. We took these two highlights in a tour to learn a little more about them, it was fascinating. We also visted the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Spanish steps, Trastevere, and the Trevi fountain. In addition to this, we shopped and ate ice creams and pizza a lot!
