You hit all the big touristy spots and eat gelato more than once a day.
We walked to the Pantheon and marveled at the architecture and materials.
My mom and I went to the Vatican. This was a must-see on her list of things to do in Rome. It was truly beautiful.
I am so glad that I got to experience this with my mom.
Another day, we headed to Florence. We caught the train and spent the day wandering around the city, stopping for, you guessed it, gelato. We took in the opulence that is the Duomo. I couldn’t get over the pink, white and green marble.
We also spent some time at the DaVinci museum and we could have stayed there for hours but wanted to make sure we caught the train home before it got too late.
Rome was a whirlwind but we got to see more than I thought we would have. We did have a couple of other tours scheduled but decided to cancel them because we were already tired and we knew that if we continued at the pace we were going, someone was going to get sick or go crazy. Traveling with kids is already hectic at times but when it’s in a big city with so much to do and see, sometimes you have to throw your original plans out the window for the sake of everyone’s sanity. We left Rome and headed to the place that I was most excited to visit. Switzerland.
