Today we woke up again around 9am and headed down for another sugary breakfast!! We then planned our route for the day as there were many monuments that we wanted to see dotted around Rome and our aim was to walk the whole route and not take the metro!
Our first stop along the way was to the alleged site of Julius Caesar’s assassination! (There were also the cutest cats – Izzy was in love!)
We then headed out and our second stop, as recommended by one of the hostel workers, was to the food market at Piazza Farnese. After our slightly unhealthy breakfasts and large amounts of pizza’s and pasta dishes whilst being in Rome we were happy to have some fresh fruit! Also basically all the stalls had free tasters from truffle oil to spices to sundried tomato’s – it was amazing!!
We then began our ascent up a little hill up to Piazzale Giuseppe Garibaldi.The incredible views we had over Rome made the walk 100% worth it! (You can even see the Emmanuel Monument in the background!)
He said this is known to be simply beautiful and he was right! It was very peaceful and there were so many artists and caricaturists around it was amazing to simply stand and watch them create these masterpieces – such talent!!
We were exhausted after walking over 26,000 steps today so hopefully will sleep well (as long as our roommate isn’t as loud as she was last night!)
Rome has gone so quickly but we have loved being in such a beautiful city and have felt really peaceful and relaxed!
