I love Rome. I love the mix of ancient and modern, the cuisine, the winding streets, the lively residents, and the fashion.
That’s why I’m always surprised when friends go on an Italian vacation and come back saying Rome was their least favorite city.
I do get their point about traffic congestion, hustle bustle, and hoards of tourists. But come on, this city is special!
There’s lots more to come, but here’s a peek at how I spent a recent four day trip in Rome.
Walking in awe along the ancient streets and falling in love with Italian gelato
Discovering the most delicious pizza, spotting the Pope, and taking in St Peters Basilica
Experiencing the wonders of art at the Vatican
Strolling the Jewish quarter and indulging in as much pasta as I can eat before going home
Have you ever been to Rome? Are you a lover or one of those who prefer other Italian cities? How do you feel about this ancient destination?
