Our last day in Italy was spent wandering around the different islands! Before starting our day, we grabbed coffee & a bite to eat at Al 133 that I listed here since it was near the hotel.
Our first stop was Murano, the island mostly known for it’s glass-making.
There was this beautiful glass piece on the island that I saw some people taking photos with.
The next stop of the day was the island of Burano. This island is mostly known for its brightly colored fishermen’s houses. We had lunch at Trattoria alla Maddalena which I listed here.
Back In Venice
We decided to just head back to Venice & check out St. Mark’s Square.
Once we got to St. Mark’s Square, we grabbed some gelato!
Also, I over edited majority of the photos from my visit in Venice & I’m too lazy to fix them especially after spending so much time restoring everything back to this blog 😔 I still hope you enjoy them!
PRO TIP: The farther away you are from St. Mark’s Square, the cheaper the souvenirs are 😉
Also went up St. Mark’s Campanile!
It wasn’t expensive to go up St. Mark’s Campanile, so this is something you should put on your To-Do List if you ever visit. It was so worth it because the views were amazing!
For the longest time, it has been my dream to roam around Rome 😉 I was still sick with a sore throat so I ended up missing dinner the previous night, but it felt nice to give my body some rest before having a full day in Rome.
We woke up early to head to the Trevi Fountain because I wanted to go before it got crowded.
The Trevi Fountain
We spent quite some time at the Trevi Fountain & took as many photos as we could.
The Roman Collosseum
Once Jeremiah & I got to The Collosseum, we took some photos.
Once we got to The Roman Forum, our tour guide said goodbye to all of us. We were able to freely roam around The Roman Forum.
Visitors are allowed to go up & see the views, but because we walked all morning, my legs couldn’t make it up there. Lol.
After The Roman Forum, we all headed to Altare della Patria because our host gave us an insider tip to go up the elevator to see a better view of Rome.
Once we got to Altare della Patria, it didn’t take long to get in, but the wait time for the elevator took a while.
Once we grabbed some gelato, we headed to the Pantheon. It was free to go in, but it was super crowded! Jeremiah & I didn’t stay long because of that.
It took us FOREVER to get through the rooms at The Vatican. The tour groups were the reason it took so long to get through because they all crowd the rooms & walkways. I don’t understand why crowd control isn’t a thing here? If I wanted to move at the pace of a tour group, I would’ve bought a ticket for a tour group. Otherwise, I’d like to go through museums at my own pace.
I didn’t really get to try the Trapizzino because I was feeling sick. I ended up taking a long nap.
