Years ago, my wife and I were planning a trip to Rome, Italy. It was actually for our honeymoon and we were quite excited to go as neither of us had been there before.
We booked everything through a travel agency because we wanted to make sure that our flights and room and board were taken care of ahead of time and in the right way. When we arrived in Rome, we were immediately blown away by the beauty of the city. It was busy but also very relaxed-- it was perfect.
We spent the first day lounging around the hotel and the neighborhood that we were staying, but by day two we both were itching to see the sights in the surrounding areas.
We decided to use the Roma Termini Railway Station that was only a few blocks from where we were staying. We somehow got lost for awhile, but in that time, we explored.
