Four Days in Rome

Visit to Rome : Playful Cooking

When we landed in Rome after spending 4 days in Paris, it felt like home! We are not Italians and never been to Italy before but there was this warmth, an unexplainable weird feeling going on inside us. We both said (almost at the same time) ‘we will so love it here’ and then he nodded when I said, ‘it feels like home’.

 

I grew up eating Indian and Indo-Chinese food. I used to apply olive oil on my face instead of pouring it on food and the first pasta I ever made had nothing al dente about the penne I used. In short, I knew nothing about Italian food until not so long ago and yet, there was this extreme contentment that I felt when we reached there.

 

It was like I could live there forever!

I am sure there are many of you who might feel the same about Italy and find a similar love for Italian food. Today, I not talking Italian food but sharing with you some of the snapshots from the trip we took during Thanksgiving, last year. It’s been a while and I should have shared the photos earlier but you all know how year-end always turns out to be!

We were there for four days and had planned to visit spots like Vatican City, Fontana di Trevi, Spanish Steps and of course, Colosseum. But we ended up seeing much more than that as we walked by from one destination to another, except for Vatican City, which we travelled by the local metro.

Rome would probably be the only city that we saw on foot, walking non-stop from morning to night, stopping by the cafes, several museums and churches, absorbing whatever this city had to offer us.

On the last day, we was really sad and wished we could stay here, wished we could seen more of Italy, visited local vineyards, ate more of those local oh-so-delicious Italian food and walked more cobbled streets.

Kankana says:

Oh share soon! I loved the place, the people and everything about Rome. 🙂

Nicole says:

I know what you mean. I had never had any desire to visit Italy, but an opportunity came up last fall and I found myself there for 10 days, 4 of them in Rome. I fell in love with the people, and especially loved how walkable Rome was. I have no doubt that I will be visiting again soon.
Your pictures have made me hope that will be soon…

Beautiful Pictures Kan, you have great ayes to do travel photography.

Wow K! Even Rome cannot be as beautiful as you make it! HOW do you suspend water like that? Magic!

I forgot to breath for a moment. Absolutely gorgeous!!!

Deepa says:

Those scooters caught my eye !! Are they for rent purpose? My sister went mad over the beauty ..You eye for picking up details made Rome more magical place

These photos are lovely:) I love Italy too, love returning there, I had the chance to visit places in Italy for more than 6 times, every time we had a great time. We didn’t get yet to Rome but this is our next goal:) I am glad you had a beautiful time. Which is your next location you will visit in Europe:)

Kankana says:

I wish we had more time in hand to travel other places in Europe 🙂 It was a short trip and we visited only Paris and Rome!

Sarvani says:

Oh.. Italy has been on the travel wish list forever!! lucky you!! Couldnt help giggling and nodding when you write, “the first pasta I ever made had nothing al dente about the penne I used”.. :))

Reem says:

Beautiful as always! !!traveled through the eyes of your camera…
Breathtaking Gorgeous.
B/w those scooters are sooo fun

Vishakha says:

Gorgeous pics! Have seen it a couple of times since morning and would love to see Rome for myself now!

Erin Hess says:

Beautiful pictures as always! Thank you for sharing.

Debbie says:

Your photos are amazing! I’ve been to Italy but my pictures somehow do not look the same. 🙂 I especially love the ones you took at the fountain. The drops of water are awesome. Great photographer you are! Now I long to return with my camera.

Eha says:

You have an amazing eye for design! I have been lucky enough to visit Italy and Rome many times, but you make all the familiar spots look delightfully different. My favourite just has to be the Trinita dei Monti church atop the Spanish Steps and in sunshine: our home away from home, the Villa Hassler is just to the right of it 😀 ! Thanks for a Sunday am journey!!

Incredible photos! I love Rome and I’m glad you did as well!

Nami | JOC says:

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I enjoyed the pictures and your stories so much…and I feel like I just traveled to Rome….

Awesome! Enjoyed the pics…

Wonderdul pictures. We are deciding on our trips this year and Rome was on top of the list but reconsidering given the fact Rome will require a lot of walking. Not so sure how that would go with a toddler.
Your pictures are giving me a second thought on Rome.

Beautiful photos as always. Like what Nami says, it feels like you just traveled to Rome. Thank you, Kankana and have a good week! 🙂

Ah, Bella Roma, home of the gelato. YUM

Aunt Clara says:

Ten years ago my husband and I spent over a month in Italy. It was more than we expected. I loved every minute of it, warts and all. There are so many other places I want to visit, and we never go twice to the same country (unless to visit family) that I don’t know when I’ll be back, but I have to say I ache to do it.

I love your pictures. I brought a digital camera in my trip, but they were so basic then that my pictures look nothing like it.

nipponnin says:

I’m so jealous. You’re so lucky! Those photos are fantastico! You’re so talented.

Pia says:

oh gosh! beautiful, beautiful! you’ve captured the golden roman light so perfectly. the photographs will stay with me for a while, kankana.

Sharmistha says:

Beautiful pictures! What is the place with the winding staircase?

Kankana says:

Thanks you 🙂 That’s inside Vatican City museum. It was the exit stair through the store.

goboroot says:

What are amazing shots!!! Love them. You made me want to go to Italy this spring.

marla says:

Such a stunning journey. Your photography is perfect! Happy I found your blog today 🙂

Kankana says:

Thank you Marla, so much! I love your blog and the variety of things you share in it 🙂

This beautiful post brought back a whole lot of Nostalgia of our Rome trip. Amazing, right – the quaintness and the charm, the liveliness and the decadence?

i have always postponed Rome because i have Paris waiting for me for so many years. but i’m pretty sure i would get along with its streets and probably the best time is in spring or autumn, when the weather is balanced.
