I love Italy. Can I say that enough? I love Italy. There, I said it again. It’s full of such friendly people and the best food ever. And that gelato – don’t even get me started. If you ever want to know the best past and gelato spots in Rome – I’ve got ya covered. I love that you can walk around all of the city and see so much history everywhere – the Spanish steps (though they were closed ), the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Colosseum, the Typewriter, and my personal favorite – the Trevi Fountain. All I wanted to see in Italy was the Trevi Fountain at night. But what I didn’t know was that it’s been closed down for several months for cleaning and repairs. I was so so upset and spent the rest of the trip trying to forget it and have fun. But the biggest triumph and blessing of the trip happened, when on the last night in Rome (and on our trip), we walked past the Trevi fountain on our way to dinner and happened upon the re-opening it – and it was perfectly beautiful. And probably one of my happiest travel stories ever. Arrevederci Roma!
