Almost 10 years ago, my travel gang and I went on a Mediterranean cruise that embarked from Rome, Italy. We visited the following countries: Sicily (Messina), Greece (Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini), Turkey (Kuşadası-Ephesus), and Italy (Naples). We returned to Rome where we disembarked and toured the city for a few days before heading back to the States.
It was my first international trip and I was beyond excited. There were so many awesome memories with new friends.
On our first night in Rome, we dined at Ristorante Aqua Pizzeria. I was super excited to try authentic Italian food, one of my favorites! I LOVE pasta!!
So guess what I ordered? Pasta, haha!
It’s seafood spaghetti! It was delicious! I wiped the dish clean! Pasta craving was definitely satisfied!
I also tried wine for the first time! Exciting! Even though I wasn’t 21 yet, I was legal in Europe!!! Yea! It was a white wine and was pretty good. Next to the wine, is water. They serve it “with gas” or “no gas.” Basically, carbonated or non-carbonated.

I loved Italy! I would love to return again one day to explore the country more and grind more authentic Italian food!
