Images Of Rome

There aren't many cities in the world like Roma. No matter which way you turn you set your eyes on imposing monuments, dramatic statues or lavish fountains. Walking around the streets today it is easy to envisage what it would've been like centuries ago when crowds thronged to the Colossuem, Caesar's foot soldiers paroled the streets and everyone was decked in sandals. Once darkness falls it isn't as lively as some other European cities, but if you don't find a bar which gets your pulse racing don't worry - the city looks twice as breathtaking at night.

    Rome, you like it or not

    For some reason, i didn't like Rome that much. It's remarkable and historical city of course but I think there's missing something that makes it a nice and homely town. If you like history this is the right place. Otherwise it's a little too big city for me that didn't offer me much. Big plus is Trastevere area. It was really nice, warm and intimate. There's lots of good and cheap restaurants and atmosphere is really nice there.

    Amazing attractions, the city itself did not charm me, but it's worth a visit to see all the amazing architecture and art.

    Not as amazing as you may think

    Rome is a place with so much history, but doesn't live up to the hype. There are many attractions to go to, which made me feel like I would spend many days there, but in reality most things are fairly simple and you get over with them fast. It's a city that needs imagination, given that almost everything is broken down and in ruins. Public transportation is alright but usually crowded, especially if you're going to mainstream places (such as the Colosseum and the Vatican). Food is the best.

    Rome - a gigantic museum

    Rome isn't a city. It's a museum. In every corner of every street, you will find a gorgeous building with fascinating history. I'm not a history buff, but Rome makes you one.

    Insider Tip:Let go of the map after a while and just walk aimlessly. Relax. You'll always find your way back home. Enjoy the piazzas in the evening. And MUST take a bottle of wine to the Spanish Steps late in the night. Just sit back and enjoy till sunrise.
