Pedaling Paris to Rome | All Blogs


Rome

By Rachel Farrington

With some new Israeli friends from OZU, we got the chance to visit Rome for a couple of days. It was a great weekend and a must see for any European trip even though it wasn't our favorite city ever.

We kept comparing it to Paris and in our book it just couldn't stand up. We saw every major landmark by foot and we both agreed that the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums were our favorite.

After that, Mark liked the Colosseum and I liked the Spanish Steps.

But you just have to be prepared for the most touristy place ever next to Vegas. It has been sad for us to see on this trip how American media has dominated the world and in no place is it more obvious than Rome. The city is littered with Johnny Depp posters, Abercrombie knock offs, and Disney everything! Jonah got a Spiderman balloon in the park...he wasn't in Paris after all!
