Trip Report Four Friends, Eight days, Easter Week in Rome-a Trip Report

Jump to last reply

I just got back from eight days spent in Rome during Easter week 2008 with my husband and two of our friends.
The following report is bound to be lengthy and filled with all the tiny details of what we saw, ate and drank so I apologize in advance. I have a website for my travelogues, and I'm an avowed foodie and photographer, so I will be posting links to my pages with photos as we go.

The trip began as a conversation with friends on our way up to a weekend in the mountains in February ’07.

Me: Ok, here are my top 5 next trip destinations.
One, two weeks in Vietnam…
Two, two weeks in India…
Three, a week in Rome…
Before I can say, “Four” the backseat contingent interrupts: “Rome! We want to go to Rome!”

And so it begins….
I didn’t even have to sell the trip, though my suggestions of an apartment in the historical district with a terrace and a view and evenings spent with wine, cheese and prosciutto didn’t hurt.
After much discussion of when to go and the discovery that summer airfare to Europe would require a second mortgage, we settled on Spring Break, the week before Easter in March 2008.

The players:
Me (Kristina) and my husband David; late 30-somethings living in Southern California. Our longtime friends Jessica and Tris (hereafter known as J and T) were our travel companions for this trip. Neither of them has traveled in Italy and this is T's first trip out of the country. David and I have been to Italy many times before, but not to Rome since 1995.
