Rome, Italy (1 day)

We decided to make our honeymoon our own version of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’… our version being ‘Eat, Love, Eat’.

We had traveled to Rome on a previous Eurotrip two summers ago where we stumbled upon a restaurant called Babbo’s. It was an easy decision that we wanted to go back for one of the best pizza experiences of our lives. It was exactly as we remembered it. Pizza thin like a cracker topped with shaved prosciutto, black olives, sliced egg, artichoke hearts and thinly sliced mushrooms. Naturally, we washed it down with a local bottle of white wine.

We didn’t go inside since we have already been. 

And the Trevi Fountain to make a wish! Adam and I made one together. Hope it comes true!!!

More pizza. Duh. 

Gelato. When in Rome!

coffe and mint for him

And the delicious drink of Italy, other than wine, the Aperol Spritz. It starts off sweet and ends a tad bitter. It’s one of those drinks that leaves you thirsty for more. We gave in.

they serve you a cocktail sometimes with potato chips or bruschetta
