Our epic Spring eurotrip came to an end with our last stop being Rome; the pace of our trip shifted dramatically as we had 4.5 days in the city to enjoy. We booked another Airbnb right down the street from the Colosseum which made it easy for us to access various public transportation systems and locate a lot of good dining options.
Over the course of the trip, we realized that we’ve been missing some good old Asian comfort food so we made it a mission to find a good place. We decided to check out Arirang, a Korean restaurant tucked away in an underground location, and we were not disappointed. Even though we started getting sick of pasta dishes and pizzas, we had to stop by Bonci’s Pizzarium near the Vatican City. With over 2,000 varieties available, each day’s selection of pizzas are offered at random. I’m not entirely sure what the slices I ate were called, but all I know was that it was delicious.
We also took a guided tour around the Vatican City which was really informative and awe-striking to see the magnificent paintings done by famous renaissance artists like as Michelangelo and Raphael. The amount of detail in every corner of the buildings were overwhelmingly extravagant with gilded ceilings encrusted with precious stones, I hope the photos are able to give it a bit of justice.
On a side note, the weather in Rome was sunny and super hot, unlike the weather in London and Paris. I didn’t anticipate such a dramatic difference, I wish I had packed less sweaters and more lighter layers to prepare for variations in the weather temperatures.
