On the way to our second annual family vacation in Sicily, I seized on the opportunity to book a one-day layover in Rome so we could crash my parent’s Airbnb and see a city that we had never been to before. My parents have been to Rome several times so I knew that they would know the best way to see the highlights during our short stay in Italy’s capital city.
Max and I flew from Calgary to Newark, NJ and then on to Rome, arriving at 10am. We took a short nap and then hit the ground running! I’ll share more about how I packed and dressed to make this the most stress-free travel and exploration day but in this post, I thought I’d just show you a photo journal of all that we saw in our one-day layover in Rome.
One day in Rome is not nearly enough and yet, we were so happy with what we managed to do in that one day and we determined that we have to return soon for a more leisurely visit.
