Piazza Navona, Pantheon & Spanish steps

Piazza Navona is a beautiful square filled with cafes, street artists and performers. ย 

You can get a caricature done within 5 minutes for 10โ‚ฌ – but Ben wasn’t keen.๐Ÿ˜ฉI still have a couple of days to convince him – wish me luck! ๐Ÿ˜ƒย It felt absolutely amazing sitting down for a drink with live music next to you in a beautiful square with breathtaking architecture.

The Pantheon was on my bucket list long before we came to Rome.ย Not only is Raphael’s tomb situated within, the Pantheon is the largest unsupported dome in the world!

How did they manage to build it over two thousand years ago?!

Spanish steps – Rome’s most beloved Rococo monument – would be the perfect place to have your lunch if it wasn’t for the crazy amount of tourists. ย 

The view from the top of the the stairs is absolutely stunning.

There is so much more to explore, and there is never enough time to get to know Rome when you come for a short break…

But there is far more to come, so watch this space – we are still yet to visit Vatican City, the Colloseum, the Roman forum and all the rest inbetween.
