Does a Valentine's Day post count if it's 2 days late? 💕😂 .
Truthfully, we've never been big celebrators on Valentine's Day, partially because our dating anniversary fell 2 weeks after it at the end of February! We're coming up on 11 years together at the end of the month, and each one has been better than the last. 😍 .
For this Valentine's Day, we were content with saying another bittersweet goodbye to Rome: we spent the morning exploring the city as long as we possibly could, and then headed to the airport to fly to Dubrovnik .
Weirdly, that's almost exactly how we spent our wedding anniversary last year--saying see you later to Italy and then hopping on a flight elsewhere. Even in our seemingly ever-changing lives, it does appear we can be pretty predictable. 😜 .
With incredible architecture, delectable food, and breathtaking ruins, we must stop to appreciate one of Rome's most important wonders: its gelato shops. With well over 2,000 gelato shops, the search for Rome's best gelato might seem like a time consuming endeavor, but someone had to do it. For the 9 best gelato shops in the Eternal City, head to the link in our bio. Photo by @neevenr via @doorsofitaly. #traveldeeper
“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard ||Rome, Italy||
Hearing about the wonders of the world is one thing, experiencing one of them is quite another. The Colosseum is more than a remnant of history but a reminder of the beginnings of modern western culture. To walk up and touch the travertine and concrete that is almost 2000 years old, materials that housed some of the most well known figures in history, is nothing short of an incredible experience.
Rome into the light ❤️
The light of this place’d accompanied me for almost one year.
When I used to work at Raiuno, I’d walked through the light of this square every day in order to reach the attic of @hotelnazionaleroma in piazza Monte Citorio. There, every week, we used to prepare a new episode of the show.
Sometimes, on the terrace in front of our balcony we could see young priests praying. In Rome, if you can avoid the noise, you have the chance to listen to the most enchanting music. It can be a choir or a prayer or a crying.
