My Dad and I were staying in a part of Rome called Republique Square, which is a pretty central location.

We started off our first day of travel together by getting a bus ticket and taking a visual tour around the city.

We hopped off from time to time to check out the major spots, like the Trevi Fountain,

the Spanish Steps,

and then after having a bite to eat and a glass of wine, we climbed the steps and saw a view of the whole city.

Later that night we checked out the Coliseum,

and then ate pasta carbonara and had tiramisu.
