You can thank the rain in Rome and the recovery state we were in while in Florence for the lack of outfit/personal shots in this post. In fact the two are interlinked. Unfortunately we hit rain while in Rome so we were 'forced' to enjoy rainy afternoons and nights indoors enjoying a lot of pizza, pasta and of course a lot of red wine. Hence the recovering in Florence. 

If you've been reading Spin Dizzy Fall a while you'll know I actually visited Rome in the summer last year so this time I chose to explore a few different sites. I visited Vatican City last time but didn't get the chance to climb St Peter's Basilica. A friend and I decided to take the lift halfway up and climbed the last steps to reach the dome. The climb was sketchy to say the least as it is very narrow, on an angle (due to the dome) and with wet steps from the rain we were clinging to the rope to get up the spiralling staircases. Having said that it was completely worth it to see the detail of the dome up close and the unbelievable view of rome from the top of the dome. 

Next we were off to Florence! We spent a day walking around the city, taking in sights, looking through markets and getting a few beers as it was St. Patricks day. After a family dinner filled with litre bottles of wine and plenty of dancing we hit The Red Garter for more St Patrick's day drinks and karaoke! Definitely a memorable way to spend our last night in Italy before heading to Switzerland.
