In July I spent three nights in Rome, the beautiful and bustling eternal city whose mention will always first and foremost make me think of the Lizzie Maguire Movie. Bloody love it. It is a beautiful place to be: the food was tasty, the sun absolutely scorching, the Birra Moretti ice cold and super refreshing (Aperol Spritz's on the other hand, not so much.. anyone else think they taste like children's medicine?).
Rome was a great introduction to Italy and I can't wait to return after my first encounter with its capital. Bring on Florence, Como, and the Amalfi Coast...maybe in a few years.
