Cappuccino and the Colosseum

  12 votes
Although finals week in university is right around the corner, a jet to Rome for a week was all the escape one needed. Being a college student, travelling was made as cheap as POSSIBLE.


Approaching the Colosseum.
Approaching the Colosseum.
With the intent of visiting a friend studying abroad, I travelled to the Eternal City for one week with six of my friends. We spent a leisurely week sightseeing, bar hopping, lazing the streets, and doing as the Romans.

Favourite spots:
Night at Piazza della Rotonda and Pantheon.
Night at Piazza della Rotonda and Pantheon.
Piazza Navona. Pantheon. Bridges overlooking the Tiber. Trastevere. Insalatta Rica.

What's really great:
Rome travelogue picture
80 cent cappuccinos. Shortbread and nutella. House wine. Olives and bufala. Cute polizia.

Sights:
Piazza Navona is charming, romantic, beautiful.

Accommodations:
Colors Hotel and Hostel: great hostel, safe location, more residential, friendly and super knowledgeable staff. Definitely more than expected for 18 euro/night. Wouldn't really want to stay there if I was paying hotel prices though. Great, semi-central location, very close to Vatican.

Nightlife:
The Drunken Ship, Campo di Fiori.
Guiness Bar, Campo di Fiori.

Hangouts:
Guiness Pub, after hours. Cola di Rienzo.

Restaurants:
Insalatta Rica. Good, cheap, filling salads, good house wine.

Other recommendations:
La Casa Del Caffe, near Pantheon. Go there for espresso granitas.
