I love Rome. I really never heard someone bringing back a negative memory about this beautiful city.
I’m always astonished by the magnificence of its monuments. So many centuries of history enclosed into few kilometres walk.
I’m always overwhelmed by the warmth of the people. Romans are open, cheerful, even a bit “caciaroni” (that means noisy), yes, and i love it.
Rome is romanticisme: walk on sunset following the Tevere River, take dinner in one of the tiny restaurants in Trastevere: is just the perfect way to end the day.
I love Rome from above: go up to the panoramic viewpoints on the Roman hills and enjoy beautiful views.
Rome is perfect just in the way “she” is, with its chaos, its imperfections, its contradictions.
”How is it possible to say an unkind or irreverential word of Rome? The city of all time, and of all the world!”
Nathaniel Hawthorne (American novelist, 1804-1864)
ah, la ville éternelle – as the French call it… 🙂
Sure!For us in Italian is “Roma città eterna”.Have You ever visited it, Mél?
Fantastic photos, as usual, Cris! I was in Rome so long ago (1989) that I hardly remember it. I was such a different person then. My husband has never been there, so hopefully we can go together one day.
Thanks, Julie! You two have to go there one day or another, I’m curious to read your impressions about Rome! To me it’s always a special city. 🙂
