So, on our way to Florence [ or, Firenze ] we stayed in Rome for a night. This city reminded me a lot of New York.. it was kinda overwhelming. We didn’t get to do many of the cultural activities, but we will be going back to Rome a few more times during our stay in Italy.
We stayed in a hotel called Casa de’Fiori, which was absolutely perfect. It is in a perfect location next to a piazza and tons of cafes/ bars. Also, the people who work at this little boutique hotel are ballllllers. Really. They spoke English and helped us out with transportation, finding places to eat, etc.
Obviously the food is incredible. Cheese. Cheese. and more cheese. Also, Wine. Wine. and more wine. The food/drink sitch could not be any better here. Everything has been extremely fresh and authentic.
So, so, so much more to come!! Next stop, Firenze![ PS ]
