At my place of work at the time, Bezeq, yearly "team building" trips were held, either in Israel or abroad. Different divisions of the company will have different trips, and in 2011 my division's vacation was in Israel. Some of my friends from another division, however, were going to Rome, Italy, and me and two coworkers - Liran and Elad - decided to join them independently.

We managed to get tickets to the same departure flight as them, but booked a room at a different hotel, and stayed in Rome a few days longer.

We spent most of our days traveling in different parts of the city (though all roads in Rome seem to lead to the Colosseum), and the nights partying in local bars and clubs.

We also went to a soccer match between local A.S. Roma and ACF Fiorentina.
