To start of this post, I must go into more detail about our wonderful hotel in Rome. The IQ Hotel is squeaky clean, close to many of the main attractions and undeniably ultra-modern. And no bed bugs! I was very concerned about picking up a bed bug but thankfully, Paul and I came back home unscathed. 🙂
Each floor had something useful and accessible to all of its’ guests. I couldn’t sleep one night so I had a good time getting some exercise and exploring the place. 🙂 And the IQ Hotel doesn’t have room service but in it’s place? Convenient vending machines! I loved them.
After stuffing ourselves silly, we got ready to trek on over to the Colosseum!
After a fun-filled few hours, we decided to go on the hunt for some infamous pizza in the well known Trastavere neighborhood. I don’t know if it’s necessarily infamous but Dar Poeta was ranked highly on Trip Advisor for best pizza in Rome.
By the way, I absolutely adored the Trastevere neighborhood. I can understand why so many bloggers and websites suggested we stop by. It truly felt like a cozy neighborhood – more like a maze! You can easily get lost here after hours. Bring a map!
What other thing did I love about Rome? Their fashion sense. Everyone from the taxi drivers @ the airport to the random students on the streets – they knew how to dress. I especially loved the outfit this random girl had on. Her outfit looked like she just threw it on but she looks chic and effortless! This has spurred me on to work on my own style.
My fantastic white pizza with 2 different types of cheese, potatoes and artichoke cream. I can see why this was one of their hot items! I have never had pizza this good. The flavors and the dough! I ate my entire pizza and finished off all of Paul’s crusts. It was that good!
