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']

class DreamVacation:
    def __init__(self, location, activities):
        self.location = location
        self.activities = activities
    # insert your code here
    def rome(cls):
        vacation_list = []

Hi, Shreya!

You're on the right track here. You need to actually pass in the location='Rome' and activities=['visit the Colosseum', 'Eat gelato'] to cls(). This method doesn't take any arguments, so you only need to have the method create an instance with the given location and activities.
