Charming Rome with Wolford

Hi everyone! I have come back from Rome and happy to share my experience with you in details. I want to thank you once again for supporting me in ‘Update your legs’ contest organised by Wolford company. This contest has started in the beginning of October and lasted two months. Everyone who wanted to participate uploaded their picture of the vision #updateyourlegs. On the 3d of December the Wolford jury has chosen 4 winners of the contest according to the pictures of the participants. The prize is charming trip to Rome for one person with 2 nights in luxurious 5 star Grand Plaza hotel.

When I have arrived to Rome Marta from Wolford has greeted me and I received welcome letter.

The Hotel is really nice and located in the very city center 5 minutes from Fountain de Trevi, 10 minute from Colloseum and Forum, all the shops and restaurants are near by, metro Spagna is 5 minutes walk. That was a perfect choice by Wolford.

I have met with Catherine and Kay other two winners and we have spent some time talking about our plans. Luckily, we had enough free time to explore the city on our own. So we decided to head to Colloseum with Catherine. Really magnificent and beautiful building taking into consideration that it was built  in 80 AD. There is a lot of work around Colloseum – a lot of excavations and reconstructions are going on. It is all fascinating to see how much is still unknown and can be found.

Next day I had a marvelous breakfast in a room decorated in Baroque style – gilded plaster mouldings, paintings, mirrors, a lot of light and luxury. Italian coffee – mmmmm…. nothing to say only to feel.

After breakfast I decided to go straight to Vatican and I was lucky it was Wednesday as every Wednesday there is an audience with Papa Francisco. Everyone has opportunity to see him very close up to 2 meter as he comes close to people in his ‘Papa mobile’. Swiss guards, personal guards of Papa place the fence bars in that way that everyone who wants could come close to see Papa when he arrives. It is really magical feeling when Papa came: his energy is so positive, he is like a sun who gives a lot of warmth and shine. After the audience I have taken an excursion inside Vatican museums and spent there over 3 hours: Rafael, Michelangelo, Sistine chapel, St.Peter’s Basillica, that is something beautiful and magical, you should explore that.

So here it is this picture. I did it! I went up 320 meters and skipped 200 by taking elevator. It is unforgettable and breathtaking. If you have claustrophobia you shouldn’t go up cause sometimes you need to go inside tight towers and rooms on your way to the top.
Rome together with Vatican are so attractive and magical in its history, culture, cuizine, shops.
You remember film with Julia Roberts. Where has she decided to go to eat, to pray and to love? – Italy!
So little time and so much to do… I had to hurry up for my evening event with Wolford in boutique on Via Frattina 90. So I rushed to hotel to make myself ready. For this evening I chose classic: Barcelona Wolford dress and neon 40 tights in gobi color.

And here we are at Wolford party celebrating our success with Kay and Cat.

I am really happy to meet these two wonderful girls. They are so kind and cheerful people. Wolford connects people! I hope we continue our friendship and meet someday, who knows maybe at some Wolford events.
