8 Must See Places in Rome
1. The Trevi Fountain Nestled in the heart of Rome, the Trevi Fountain is a true masterpiece. It's truly relaxing to sit under the 26 meter tall fountain and take in the incredible craftsmanship. The fountain is built upon an ancient water source, the Acqua Vergine. The design of the fountain we see today was designed by Nicola Salvi in 1730 and completed by Giuseppe Pannini in 1762. This ancient fountain is truly incredible as you walk up one of the many side streets leading to the fountain, you begin to hear the sound of rushing water and suddenly in front of you is this stunning fountain. No trip to the Trevi Fountain would be complete without tossing a coin into the fountain and some Italian gelato from one of the surrounding parlors. I highly recommend the near by gelato shop Venchi. With chocolate running down the wall behind the counter and a choice of the most delicious flavours of gelato you could think of, Venchi is my personal favourite. Take some gelato from Venchi and relax whilst taking in the beautiful Trevi fountain. The fountain is even more of a spectacle at night, with lights shimmering over the water the fountain after the suns gone down is something not to miss.
Uni vs. Apprenticeships
The choice between university or an apprenticeship is a tough one faced by most teenagers in the UK. When completing your A-Levels, choosing what to do after is a tough decision for many. At the mere age of 18, you're asked to choose what path you want to take for the rest of your life. What you choose to do at 18 years old can shape the adult you become. There are advantages and disadvantages to university and apprenticeships. However, it's important you make the decision that's right for you.
