My Roman Holiday

In December I was lucky enough to go to Italy's capital, Rome. I completely fell in love with the city. I visited the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps and the Vatican. It was not too expensive to go actually and only a 4 hour bus ride. I went with my friend Lilly and we stayed in a hostel called The Yellow, it was cheap and had some pretty interesting people. Here are some pictures from Rome:

 I was amazed by its beauty.
 Imagining all the Romans being here back in the day....daaaaang. Wish I could have seen that!

 This is why people don't mess with me.  I may seem sweet...but I puts it down when I have to!

 Pietá - My favorite sculpture done by Michelangelo. I was beyond happy to visit this piece again.

 Look at all the tourists. Rome is a beloved city to all.

 Harry Potter is world wide and Italians love HP as much as everyone else. So much they decided to have a HP flash mob in one of Rome's busiest piazzas.

This trip definitely left me wanting to visit Rome again. It would be nice to spend more than just a couple of days exploring the city. I couldn't have asked for a better holiday. :)
