#VarsityRome Day Three: Rome Tour and Florence

Share This Post

“The most important places on a map are the places we haven’t been yet.”

Varsity White

Today Varsity White ventured out of Rome to visit Florence, Italy. We started our day by heading to Roma Termini, a local train station. From there we boarded, found our seats and set off to Florence. Fun fact: the train carts travel up to 155 mph – talk about a quick trip!

Once we arrived in Florence, we gathered in front of Grande Museo Del Duomo to take pictures and get our tickets to the Galleria Dell’Accademia. This walking tour consisted of many amazing art pieces, as well as the famous statue of Michelangelo’s David. What a site to see!

After our tour concluded, we were free to explore the city. For many this looked like shopping at the corner market, grabbing pizza and gelato for lunch, or visiting the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. All in all, our day spent adventuring a new city was one to remember! Tomorrow #VarsityWhite will visit the Vatican and spend time rehearsing the parade routine. Stay tuned for more fun on day four!

#VarsityBlue

Varsity Blue took on Rome by foot today! Our knowledgeable and friendly tour guides took us to see some of the most famous sights in Rome. We made wishes in the Trevi Fountain, walked (or ran!) up the 135 Spanish Steps and we were blown away by the (gigantic) Pantheon. Surrounding the Spanish steps is Piazza del Popolo, an area filled with delicious restaurants, cafes and shopping.

We also had the opportunity to go to the top of Piazza Venezia which has some of the best views of the ancient city. From the Colosseum to the Roman Forum to St. Peter’s Basilica, the views were stunning. The amount of history seen from up above was a memory we will cherish forever.

Tomorrow we are checking out the one of the seven wonders of the world—the Colosseum! We can’t wait. Until then, we are sending love from Rome!
