Final Destination - Rome Italy | Hotel Edition | Italy Trip 2014

Hey Everyone,

Here to share with you the last (but not the least) destination on our Italy Trip 2014, Roma! Rome was absolutely amazing loved it. It's definitely way up there with the top places to visit and I will highly recommend. This post is about the Hotel we stayed at in Rome but don't worry there will be a follow up post i.e the next post, which will be all about the beautiful sites of Rome. I hope you like it. Also, I did a quick Hotel Room tour video which you can see on my youtube channel and have loads of pictures too on my Instagram so please feel free to check them out!

The Hotel: Hotel Ariston

The Hotel Ariston is a lovely 4 star modern hotel, I love the modern and contemporary style of the hotel. It was really cosy and although we only stayed 2 nights, I enjoyed my brief stay at the hotel and I will defo recommend. The hotel is also very central to most things and just around the corner from the train station. I took so many pictures while I was there because I wanted to share with you guys the beautiful decor of the hotel, I hope you like them.

The Bedroom was quite tight in space so not a lot of room to move about in.. But I managed to get a few pics for you all p.s. the bed was like in the middle of the room which I found a little odd but oh well!..

The Bathroom:This was more of a shower room but it was ok

The Hotel Lounge: Lounge 1

The Corridors

The Staircase / Hallway

The Hotel Bar (Bar 1): The hotel had 2 different bars and 2 lounges both so nicely decorated and a nice cosy room to just chill out, even though we didn't have much chilling out time because there was so much to see in so little time 😉 but I could definitely see myself chilling and relaxing in both rooms!

More pictures of the hallway leading to the reception how lovely is it!..

The front of the Hotel / Reception area

Now on to the next Lounge / Bar 2

Stunning hotel! Loved it, it's a shame I didn't get to stay there longer to enjoy it to the full but I will definitely recommend to anyone visiting Rome to try it out. If you like a modern and contemporary decor/feel and look like moi you will love it apart from the odd bit of the bed being in the middle of the room but oh well it could just be the Rome way lol. Anyway guys that's all peeps 😊! Plenty more pictures on my Instagram and videos on my youtube channel so be sure to check them out, next post will be all about the wonderful sites of Rome.

Ciao! X

Second Destination: Florence - Pisa | Italy Trip 2014

Hey All,

This post is all about my trip to Firenze.. Florence Italy!.. Florence was the 2nd destination on our Italy trip. When planing our trip to Italy, to be honest Florence wasn't really a city that we thought of going to but as we had the opportunity to also visit Florence we thought why not. That saying, I'm glad we got the chance to experience Florence and to see the beautiful city. While we were there, we decided to jump on the train down to Pisa to see the leaning tower which was absolutely amazing!!

The hotel we stayed at in Florence was called Hotel Porta Faenza. The hotel was nice, but unfortunately wasn't really my cup of tea.. No offence though, as I'm sure it might be to others but if I'm honest, it was just okay somewhere to put your head down for the night etc.. I'm so sorry I wasn't inspired to take photos of the hotel and there wasn't that much too it. I did however, take a photo of an area of the reception that I felt was quite old fashioned and unique which I kinda liked, proper vintage probably.. I'll insert the picture below:

Now you don't see a phone and a typewriter like that everyday do you?.. I just had to take the pic! Florence is such a lovely, beautiful city and I really enjoyed checking out the sites while I was there. The following are the snaps that I took while site seeing hope you like them!

Florence Cathedral - The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore
Piazza del Duomo Florence
The other side of the Duomo at night - Beautiful Architecture
Palazzo Vecchio
Loggia dei Lanzi
Piazza della Repubblica
These are just a few I have loads more on my Instagram check them out!.. The next photos are the ones taken in Pisa. Pisa is another lovely city in Italy in the region of Tuscany were you can find the leaning tower which is absolutely amazing! While I was there I tried the famous pose near the leaning tower but unfortunately for me, the lightning wasn't on my side and the photos taken weren't up to scratch. So, I'm sorry I won't be sharing them. Maybe one day when I return I will have a pic for you then enjoy!

San Michele in Borgo
The Leaning Tower of Pisa
Looking at the tower from this picture that I took on my camera the tower doesn't really look like it's leaning does it?.. Lol but compared to the pic I took on my iPhone that definitely showed the leaning tower leaning hehe.. Check out my Insta pics to see the difference. I have also added another picture below taken of the tower from another angle..

Piazza dei Miracoli
Camposanto Monumentale
