Honeymoon Recap: Rome

Guess who’s back…back again…

The honeymoon (AKA #Huntymoon) was absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to fill you all in! So I’m doing a series of three blog posts for you highlighting our adventures in Rome, Florence, and Venice. First up, Rome!

Rome was the first stop on our honeymoon itinerary and we filled it with sightseeing, eating, and drinking, naturally. So without further ado…let the food photos (peppered with some fabulous photos of the city and my outfits) begin!

Colosseum

As Hunter put it: “They see me Roman, they hatin”

Day one: We took an overnight flight and arrived in Rome with plenty of time to unpack and explore. Side note: I had to spend some serious time remembering and cataloging all of the restaurants we visited and matching up my food photos. Clearly, this trip involved a good amount of eating and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Back to day one. We grabbed lunch at Fres&Co Coronari and sat outside to enjoy the gorgeous weather. After a cheese and charcuterie board and a panini, we headed to the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. We wrapped up our first day with dinner at Fontana di Venere  in the Trevi neighborhood.

Cheese please! Hunter had his fill of charcuterie on this trip.

Hunter kept it classic with lasagna.

Day two: We kicked off day two with a tour of the Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Loved it all! We were exhausted after, so we grabbed a cheese board and a quick lunch at our hotel restaurant, Raf. After a quick post-lunch nap, we were eager to explore Rome’s Trastevere neighborhood (a nice walk along the river, about a mile from our hotel). We enjoyed one of our favorite meals of the trip in Trastevere at L’Antico Moro that evening – followed by gelato, naturally!

Hunter’s choice: “La Magica.” No idea what was in this, but he loved it and it looked delicious.

Day three: We began our third day in Rome with cinnamon cappuccinos and croissants at Caffe delle Arance in Piazza di Santa Maria,  followed by a walk down Via del Corso that included many a shopping stop (be sure to stop at Zara when in Rome!). We stopped for lunch at Pane e Salame and dined on the patio at  La Carbonara for dinner.
