Help with DreamVacation challenge

Below is a class called DreamVacation that holds a location and list of activities. Create a @classmethod called rome that will return a new DreamVacation instance with cls() with the following arguments: location = 'Rome' and activities list = ['visit the Colosseum', 'Eat gelato']. Hint: The classmethod should take cls instead of self as an argument.

class DreamVacation: def init(self, location, activities): self.location = location self.activities = activities # insert your code here #my code @classmethod def rome(cls, location = 'Rome', activities = ['visit the Colosseum', 'Eat gelato']):

dream_vacation.py
class DreamVacation:
    def __init__(self, location, activities):
        self.location = location
        self.activities = activities
    # insert your code here

    @classmethod 
    def rome(cls, location = 'Rome', activities = ['visit the Colosseum', 'Eat gelato']):

The "rome" method itself doesn't need to take arguments. But it should supply them when creating a new instance, and it needs to "return" that new instance.

would you mind sharing your code?

I adjusted mines but does not appear to work :(

@classmethod def rome(cls, location, activities list): return cls(location = 'Rome', activities list = ['visit the Colosseum', 'Eat gelato'])

As I said before, the "rome" method should not take arguments (other than "cls").
And in the call, the 2nd parameter is just "activities", not "activities list".
