I can hardly find words to describe the beauty of Rome, probably my favorite city in the world. That’s why I chose to let you have a little wild archaeological photo tour  of the ancient Rome, one of the most fascinating areas of the ‘eternal city’. And, if you feel brave enough to go up and down the seven hills, a great way to explore the city is discovering Rome by bike.

      Rome is like no other city in the world, Lori, and it’s impossible not to fall in love with it. Not only, when you go there once, you want to go back, and then back again!

      Impossible not to fall in love with Rome, Leslie. It’s one of the cities one has to visit at least once in life!

    These are nice Roman monuments and statues for one to visit. I have never personally seen the Arch of Constantine, but that gives me another excuse to go back to Rome ;-)

      Rome is really unique, Amer, and I’m sure that sooner or later you’ll have the chance to visit it. I go again and again, and always find it awesome!

    Been there 3 weeks ago and got the same feeling as you are. Rome is simply fantastic, so envy that one city can inherit so many treasures..

    Much of Roman history deals with wars, which means Roman soldiers in Roman legions fighting first Italians, then as the Empire expanded, other peoples around the Mediterranean. The Roman Empire depended on the Roman army. Not only did the legionaries conquer, but they spread the language and culture of Rome to Europe to the Rhine. Aside from this, I love the pictures you shared.
