Rome, Italy: The Eternal City
Rome is a city I remember for a number of things – great food, wonderful gelato, and the seemingly inexhaustible number of things to do and see. It is also a city with its own dark history like many cities, I guess. The Colosseum in Rome (pictured below), for example, is a major tourist attraction today but was also a major attraction centuries ago when it was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles.
It was a few years ago when I visited Rome. Since it was a flying visit, most of my exploration of the city was done at night. I reserved my daytime for exploring the Vatican. It was also a time when I had a much crappier photography device. The combination of these factors did not result in the best quality of pictures but I hope you get the idea.
If you are an art and/or history lover, you will very likely enjoy Rome. The Vatican Museum alone would require more than a day to fully experience. I did not experience Rome as I would have loved to so I have a desire to go back to explore the city and also discover more of the Vatican City.
