I’m an International Hotel & Tourism Management Major student and I’m currently studying abroad in Italy. I’ve traveled to Rome on my second weekend that I’ve been in Italy and I must say for my first time in Rome, it was splendid! It was a totally different scenery and so different from what I usually see on a daily. I visited the basic tourist areas which were The Vatican, The Trevi Fountain, St. Peter’s Square, the Spanish steps and the Colosseum. These are some great tourist areas that you must see while in Rome. My friends and I took a Hop-on Hop-off bus from the bus station to the different areas. It was the best decision we made because it was completely impossible to do by feet. Our first stop was the Colosseum, we didn’t enter the Colosseum just because of the lack of time, but we still enjoyed our time.

The funniest thing happened; we passed our stop to the Vatican and the Trevi Fountain due to a misunderstanding. We thought the bus would drop us off right in front of the areas but instead it drops you off on the street, so you would have to walk 5 minutes or less to the area. Since we missed the drop-off, we had to take the tour again! We really didn’t mind because we had a blast the first time. On our second time around we made sure we knew when to get off. Our last stop was the Trevi Fountain. There was so many people there surrounding the fountain. It was just so beautiful, especially at night. We stopped to eat at this nice restaurant 3 minutes from the Trevi Fountain. The owner of the restaurant played American music for us and made us try his specialty oil. Rome would be a memorable experience for me!
