Welcome back to Surreal Serene!!! I’m Serene and today I’m going to be sharing with you a special post, and sharing my first outfit from my trip to Rome, Italy!!!
I arrived at the Hotel La Residenza, in Rome, Italy which was a 4 star accommodation, and I managed to get a good price on the hotel through using Hotels.com which gives amazing discounts on hotels!!! I loved the stay at the hotel, their service was great and their breakfast was heavenly, and the reason why I chose this particular hotel, as it was located in a great area which was within walking distance of the metro train station, bus stops and within walking distance of 2 main tourist attractions including including the Trevi Fountains and the Piazza Di Spagna (The Spanish Steps) which is perfecttttttttttt!
The only concern I had with the hotel I stayed at, that there was construction work happening in the next door building, and the construction noises started from 8.30 in the morning (but I guess if you want to wake up and go and explore Italy, then this wouldn’t be such a huge problem)!!! & a minor tip, if you’re staying in a 4 star accommodation, you need to be aware that you’ll have to pay about 6 euros a night / per person (for up to 10 nights) as city tax (but this is not applicable for travellers staying in a 3 star or under accommodation)!!! (Which I wasn’t really aware off until the end of my trip, however it was highlighted in the fine print of my hotel booking invoice) Lol!!!
HOTEL LA RESIDENZA ADDRESS: Via Emilia 22-24, Rome, RM, 00187, Italy
So on the first day I arrived in Rome I decided to check out the Trevi Fountains at night, which is an iconic sight to visit in Rome, and the fountains are really spectacular to see during the night time and the lights illuminate out of the fountains and its a great tourist point, theres a lot of people and the vibe is spectacular with people laughing, sitting, chatting and socialising at the fountains and in the nearby area!!!
For dinner that night, I ate in a small restaurant, that served authentic Italian food nearby the Trevi Fountains in a place called Perfetto which also serves burgers as well, but their pasta’s and pizza’s are incredible and so tasty, and best of all it’s authentic. If you’re planning on eating out, make sure you also set some money aside in your budget for food, as their food prices are a little expensive and you don’t want to be out of pocket LOL!!!
PERFETTO ADDRESS: Piazza Fiume, 00198 Roma RM, Italy
If you’re living in the UK, you’ll know we don’t have a Sephora available here, and so I always get to explore the Sephora’s abroad, and there a number of Sephora’s around Rome, including the one located near by the restaurant I ate in, and the Trevi Fountains. I went inside and picked up a few of my Sephora essentials, let me know if you’d like me to do a haul on my Sephora bits!!!
SEPHORA ADDRESS: Via del Tritone, 74/78, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
So for my first night in Rome I decided to rock a gorgeous Co-ord knitted set I picked up from Missy Empire and it’ss gorgeous, perfect for the cooler temperatures and it’s really easy to wear you can dress it up or wear it alone, like I’ve done!!! This type of outfit is perfect for travelling as it looks super stylish but it’s also comfy!!!
I teamed the look with my huge oversized Missguided Stone Puffer Jacket, a pair of my oversized Primark Silver Hoop Earrings, and my comfy Nike Air Max 95 trainers!!!
