I am so sorry for the really long post, but my second day in Rome was a really long one. We started in the morning and walked on Rome's cubble stone streets till midnight. We wanted to see everything that it is to see, so I took at least 500-600 pictures. If you type in "two days in rome" you will find loads of great blogs, telling you tips and tricks on how to survive and see every tourist spot in the italian capital in a weekend.
We decided to visit the Colosseum, Novum Forum in the morning after which we walked over to the Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli to see Michelangelo's Moses sculpture but it was closed for lunch or something. After this we went to Piazza Spagna to see the spanish steps but unfortunately they are under construction or something so we couldn't sit on it. But it was really crowded, and full of designer shops.We knew the Trevi Fountain was under construction, but it was so near by, we decided to just take a look and threw in a coin! Who cares if there is no water? Next stop was the Pantheon, which is such an incredible building. It was built 2000 years ago and Raphael (the painter) was burried here. After a quick lunch we went to Piazza Navona, which is filled with loads of artists selling their paintings, dancers performing and tourist taking lots of photos. By the time we arrived to Campo di Fiori, it was already really dark and we were exhausted. But we had tickets to the opera, so we just grabbed an ice cream and went to see the La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi. It was mindblowing!!
