I’ve been obsessed with London since I was a teenager, since the days when my school friends and I would get the train up at the weekends to chase pop bands around. Back then London was a place of absolute wonder and excitement; a place where you could realise your dreams, no matter how crazy or ridiculous. It’s so difficult to explain the exhilaration the 14-year-old me would feel getting off the train at Waterloo, a stranger in a city bigger than I could fathom with so much to see and do. I love London and always promised that teenage version of me that one day, I’d live there.
There are so many things to see in Rome, Italy, it can be difficult to know where to start.

Surprisingly though, it was many of the places and areas we stumbled across by accident that we loved the most. Here are our top 10 things to do in Rome and information about Rome entrance fees.
At the moment I feel like I’m measuring the time we have left before our trip in ‘Lasts’. We’ve just had our last British summer (thank god!) and now we’re on the verge of our last autumn and all the things I love that go with that; halloween and bonfire night, frosty dark mornings and watching the parks turn golden and crispy. This weekend marked another ‘last’ – our last London Frightfest.
13 days of sweltering hot sun and blue sky - one afternoon of thunder, lightning and being soaked to the skin. Oh well, a day in Rome, even if it's a rainy one, is still ten times better than a day in the office! Check out the Roman rain...
Normally when we go abroad Andrew will eat anything, I, on the other hand, am much pickier. I knew I wouldn't have a problem with the food in Rome though as Italian food is my absolute favourite cuisine - in fact we probably would have put on a few stone had it not been for all the epic walks we did! Here's some of the best dishes we had:
We took a two week holiday in Rome, Italy. Here’s a breakdown of how much it cost us, from transport to food, accommodation and activities, we hope this will give you an idea of what to expect from Rome prices.
