We're going to Rome!

This morning I booked our honeymoon hotel—a darling bed & breakfast with views of St. Peter's.

I can't believe it's really happening. I can't believe I'm going to my favorite city in the world with my favorite person in the world! Our flight is three months from today, and I couldn't be more excited.

Now, readers, I need your help. A lot of you have been to Rome, or maybe even lived there for a time. I've been there twice before, but both trips were brief—this is by far my longest stay. Do you have any recommendations for fun things to do—restaurants to try, out-of-the-way museums, pretty gardens, tips and tricks for navigating the city? Anything you've got would be a huge help!

And now, it's time I get started on my next project: learning a bit of Italian before we go.

Arrivederci, e grazie per leggere!


  1. The Borghese gardens to the north of the city are beautiful. And they include the Borghese gallery which is a much smaller museum full of exquisite Bernini sculptures and Caravaggio paintings. It's much smaller than most Roman museums but that helps you be able to take in the treasures it has.

    If you make it out to Castel Gandolfo, Bucci's is a delicious restaurant that would be perfect for a nice dinner.

    1. Anne, thanks, this is just what I was looking for! I'll be writing these suggestions down in our travel plans!

  2. Ahhh!! So exciting!

  3. That's awesome!!! I am so, so happy for you!! :)

  4. No recommendations, as I haven't been, but...

    ...WOW! That's going to be SO awesome. View of St. Peter's? I don't think there's any need to wish you an amazing time, because it's kind of in the definition. lol. God bless you! <3

  5. Congratulations!!! That sounds wonderful. :) I'm more than sure you will have a fabulous time. God bless y'all!!!

  6. Hi Tess,

    I discovered your blog through another blog and I just want to say: I'm so happy for you that you will be able to honeymoon in Rome! It's my favourite city and I was blessed enough to live there for a short time, so if you'd like my "ready-made-list-of-sites-to-see", let me know. I can be reached at jess dot leach at gmail dot com :)

    God bless you!
