Italy 2012: Rome - Day One

The night we arrived in Rome we were pretty beat from a long (and hot!) day of traveling, but we took the Roma Metro and thanks to my personal tour guide (Mr. Special) we easily found our hotel and checked in. I'm not sure what happened exactly, because somehow the hotel thought it was our honeymoon and we entered our (very nice!) room to find a bottle of chilled champagne and two glasses with a congratulations note! Hey, I'll take it!

My first impression of Rome was that it was very different from Venice. Venice wasn't just in another country- it felt like another world! Rome felt more familiar - like a European New York City (that feeling ended after I had my first glimpse at the Roman Ruins but you get the idea.

That first night in Rome, we ate a quick dinner and went to bed early- we had a ten hour tour the next day!
