July 20th: a day trip to Rome.

I started off with visiting the Colosseum. No I didn't. I started by eating
a Nutella-filled cake in a hotel restaurant early in the morning. Then heading
towards the Colosseum and walking through the ever-gorgeous Roman Forum
and thanking my lucky stars that I opted for flat shoes that day.

The monument to Vittorio Emanuele II was particularly stunning. Then we
headed towards the Trevi Fountain and Spanish stairs, before making a quick
stop at Bvlgari and happily snacking on French macarons in between.

St. Peter's square and the Basilica were really fantastic. Though I'm not
religious, it was probably my favorite part of Rome.
