Catching Up! Vacation Photos Part 1: Rome

I'm attempting to play blog catch up by posting some vacation photos from July (yikes)! After my work trip, we took a few weeks to travel to Italy & Greece. Our first stop was Rome. The heat was a welcomed change from our chilly, rainy summer in Paris. We stayed in this adorable AirBNB on Via Urbana - the cutest street in the heart of Rome. It was central and the perfect place to relax between sightseeing.
I have to rave about the food we had during our trip. It definitely lives up to the hype, but we had to do a bit of digging to find the best places. We stumbled across Aromaticus and ended up eating there every single day for lunch. They serve green juice (which was much needed to balance out all of the carbs we were eating!) and healthy, light lunches. Lucas had a quinoa bowl and I had the bright red tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella drizzled with olive oil and sea salt. My mouth waters now just thinking about how good it was. We had dinner one night at Brocoletti on our street, which has homemade pasta and tiramisu. On our last night we went to Li Rioni for cheese pizza and house wine, which was simple and delicious. Oh...we also ate gelato at least 3 times per day. :)
We spent our short trip checking the must sees off of our list: the Colosseum tour, an early morning Vatican tour, the Spanish Steps, and the Villa Borghese. Italy, ahh!
