I didn’t think my little getaway to Rome would turn into a little mini series here on the blog, but here we are, day four in Rome, and it seems to be just that. It was just so eventful, each day jammed with something different, and so many pictures to share, I couldn’t help myself I HAD to share it with you all. Today’s post is (hopefully) going to be a little shorter than the others, as it was our final day in Rome and in essence, a shopping day.
We had caught Fontana Di Trevi during the night on our first night in Rome, but I was adamant we needed to see it in daylight too. It wasn’t a mistake, the fountain had a different feel to it during sunlight, but just as beautiful. The water was so blue, the atmosphere so loud, just magical. We lingered for a while and then made our way over to Spagna, home of the Spanish Steps and also the shopping district of Rome. Side by side, you see all the fashion houses that dreams are made of. Prada, Versace, Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Armani – let’s say the list is never ending. Call me uneducated but I had no idea just how many of these brands were actually Italian – I knew some of them were but wow the Italian’s really do fashion well. And cars. And food. Talk about a talented bunch. We wondered shop to shop, picking up gifts for loved ones and looking for things for ourselves. I also had a huge shop in Zara (it’s cheaper here than in the UK).
We didn’t really do much other than shopping, but I just wanted to put this post out there so that you could see the Fontana Di Trevi in the daylight. Once our shopping was wrapped up, we headed back to the hotel and got in our taxi to the airport. Again we opted to get a private taxi simply to avoid the hassle of getting lost, getting on the right train and also because we were feeling quite lazy. I am sure it would’ve been fine catching the train but you know how it is, excuses excuses. At the airport there were a fair few duty free shops, I picked up a pair of sunglasses for myself from Ray-ban and also one for the husband as I hadn’t purchased him anything from Rome. We then quickly dined on our last Roman pizza and caught our plane back home.
As this blog post has been fairly short and you’ve been so patient with reading my blog posts, it is only fair that I share with you a vlog of all 4 days in Rome. I really hope you enjoy it, I’d love your feedback as I have never done a travel diary or travel vlog before so do let me know if this is something you’d like to see more of.

Our stay in Rome was beautiful, although a little exhausting as we packed in so much in 3 days. Would I go again? Yes for sure, but probably not right away. I’d love to travel a little more in other countries and then revisit Rome again one day and reminisce about our very first holiday there together. I hope you’ve enjoyed the last few posts on our little trip and the vlog, do let me know if I should a post like this again next time we go away. Speak soon! Tanzina x
