When my wife and I set off on vacations, it usually involves a beach and a remote destination. Sightseeing has it’s moments, but I would much rather just relax and not having to run around on a schedule. For this trip, however, we decided that we would see a lot of sites as Rome and London have a lot to offer in the way of cool and historical places to visit.
Our routing was SLC – ATL – FCO
Our outbound flight from Salt Lake City to Atlanta was on a 757-200 with a 3 and 3 configuration in Economy. Our entertainment on the flight was an overhead screen showing some random movie and some boring TV shows
The flight went just fine and when we landed in Atlanta, we looked around for a place to eat due to our long layover. We found The Varsity which they’re famous catch phrase “What’ll ya have?” I usually try to avoid loading up on greasy food right before a long flight – but how can you turn down onion rings? I’ll take a side order of heart disease, please.
The flight to Rome from Atlanta was also non eventful. When we landed in Rome, we grabbed our luggage and took a taxi to Boscolo Palace Roma. We choose the Boscolo due to it’s location near downtown and because I had some excess Marriott points to burn.
Due to our early arrival, our room wasn’t ready and so we stored our luggage and headed out to see some sights. I don’t usually sleep on planes anyways and walking around in the daylight is really the only chance I have to stay awake when I first arrive.
