The architecture here is breathtaking. Every building you walk by is ornate and so different than the next one. I actually find myself holding my breath at times looking up in amazement at the ancient buildings. On Saturday we visited the third largest church in Rome, San Giovanni in Laterano, and I was at a loss for words. I kept looking around in awe only managing to get out the word “Wow.” I had to include a photo of the detailed ceiling; however, pictures really don't do these structures justice.
Nightlife here is definitely an experience in itself. Our first weekend here just happened to be opening day for the summer club "Babel". These are held outdoors and this concept is one of my favorite things about Rome thus far. The weather Saturday night was cool and breezy, perfect for a night out. After grabbing drinks at a pub we headed down the cobblestone streets towards the outdoor party. Walking in heels on cobblestone is quite a challenge, but we survived only taking a few stumbles.
While it has only been three days, I feel like we have been here for weeks already. Every outing has proved to be an adventure in itself and I am excited to write about all of it.
