Love and Rome

This is a blog I started about a year ago over on, that I've migrated over to Blogger since I use Google constantly anyway. I hope you enjoy it. When I was trying to re-design and re-conceptualize the blog, I thought, "What should this blog be about?" I think I might have had a mid-(thirties) life crisis, and thought, "Who am I, anyway?!" I'm living with my best friend, deeply in love, and trying to live life as fully as I can. I'm interested in nearly everything, and a profession, psychiatry, that I generally love, except for the paperwork and politics involved. So that's what I'll write about.

The Boy and I are honeymooning in Rome next month! Besides getting married to the Boy (which I am incredibly excited about), going to Rome to see all the things I've read about and experience the culture (read: food, art and style) is something I've always dreamed about!

Here's our agenda:

  • Sunday, arriving before noon at the hotel; afternoon at the Borghese Gallery
  • Monday: ancient Roman monuments, including the Colliseum, Palantine Hill, Pantheon, Capital Hill, Forum, etc.
  • Tuesday: National Museum of Rome, Appian Way Stroll and Catacombs
  • Wednesday: Naples and Pompeii
  • Thursday: Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica, afternoon shopping, strolling and eating Gelato
  • Friday: Ostia Antica and strolling from the Campo de'Fiori to the Spanish Steps
  • Saturday: free
  • Sunday: tracking down all the Caravaggio paintings that we didn't see at the Vatican; leaving Rome at 8 pm.
What do you think? Any travelers out there have ideas for our free day that we shouldn't miss?

"Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them."
— Marcus Aurelius


  1. How about the Jewish Ghetto for part of that free day?

  2. Sounds good. I heard there's a building planned by Julius Caesar there... :)
