Second Trip to Rome

I can't seem to get enough of Rome! Or I've had two field trips for two different Art History classes... Either way I love going back! There's a never-ending amount to see in this city. My professor Helen knows how to tackle a city in a weekend, visitng what most tourists do in 3 weeks: the Colosseum, the Forum ruins, the Vatican, the Sistine ceiling, St. Peter's, the Borghese Museum, a million churches, Hadrian's Villa, the city of Tivoli, and much more. She makes trips stressful

I went to Venice for Carnivale this weekend, which was FANTASTIC. I'll have to post pictures soon because there's really no way to describe the festive mood and the outstanding costumes.








My roommate Lizzy!


Me with my 2 Lizzys


The sunlight was beautiful.


A hallway in a museum (they begin to blur together eventually).


At the Vatican!

So many cats in Rome

Hope you all had fantastic weekends! Thanks for reading. :)
