Eurotrip, Day 1: Rome

Mom and I started our journey in Chicago on Tuesday afternoon and, after a brief stop at Charles de Gaulle, arrived in Rome late Wednesday afternoon. We stayed at the Hotel Gambrinus, which was in the Northeast section of the city. We decided as a first order of business to see the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, so we armed ourselves with a guidebook and set out.

Our hotel wasn’t too far from either of these attractions, but the Roman city planners had obviously never heard of a grid pattern, and the trip seemed substantially longer because of all the twists and turns we had to take. (The journey was even more arduous because we sometimes got lost and had to backtrack.) We eventually found both the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, and then decided we should grab some early dinner and call it a night.
