It was 6am, my taxi had arrived to take me to Stansted airport. I was heading out to Rome for a 4 day trip. With the big selection of food restaurants at Stanstead airport, I opted for a classic Italian dish... "una pasta di pomodoro". Ok look it was a ready made pasta to go.

For those like me (people that love to travel), you know that we all have a list of places that we would love to see. For me Italy, even in all its beauty and rich history had not made it on to my list but I was still excited to be exploring a new country. I arrived at Ciampino airport at midday and for the next leg of the journey I needed to travel north where I would finally arrive at the place I would call home for the next 4 days.

Classic Italian *Sigh*

I arrived outside the Rome Cavalieri Hotel by taxi and was greeted by the host, he offered to take my luggage to my room while I checked in. Now let me tell you, I am not usually one to encounter such luxury, I decided to decline and take care of my own luggage. After check in I made my way to my room and let's put this way "room" is an understatement. Plush blue carpet, an enormous bed, a balcony with a view and a bathroom that I would have been satisfied with if they told me that it were my room for the 4 days. So you get it right? I am used to the simple things in life.

This bed was fit for royalty

Day 2

So, with this being a work trip, as you can expect, I had to actually do some work so Days 2 and 3 involved me being inside a spectacular room with a very large work of art and I woke up to a great selection of fruit in the morning as part of the room service. The evening meals were not only traditional they were also very tasty and satisfying; It certainly topped my previous tomato pasta. On day 3 I managed to get out into the city at night and explore the Vatican city. I also took part in a 3D tour of Rome, the buildings had a blend of history and art projected on the buildings that popped out at you if you wore the 3D glasses available for any donation.

Room service was incredible

The view alone made me feel relaxed

So Day 3 and it was time to say Ciao to the Cavalieri and explore a bit more of Rome by day. I had 3 hours to take a look around before the airport and I think that 4 days could not completely do the city of Rome justice. I will be returning to Rome to explore it to its fullest. In the mean time check out my whole vlog of my time in Italy, it gives a much better insight. Subscribe to me on Youtube as I post my adventures there also.
