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 on my travel list – my husband was there with his job, and from what he told me, I definitely have to go there and experience Rome first hand Reply Simon Falvo March 25, 2013 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! Reply Juno November 8, 2012 For some reason, I remembered all of your Rome posts when I was in Rome. I think it’s because you can appreciate your history and your country. Glad to see the wonderful photos again. Reply Simon November 8, 2012 How can of you, Juno. Well… It’s no mystery that I’m in love with Rome and Europe cultural heritage Reply Simon November 8, 2012 How kind of you, Juno. Well… It’s no mystery that I’m in love with Rome and Europe cultural heritage Reply Leslie (Downtown Traveler) October 13, 2012 Beautiful! I’d love to see these sites in Rome. Such a rich history! Reply Simon October 13, 2012 Impossible not to fall in love with Rome, Leslie. It’s one of the cities one has to visit at least once in life! Reply James March 4, 2012 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 Reply Amer February 22, 2012 Great photos of Rome! This is the only city I desperately want to visit! Sometimes it makes me wonder how I’ve missed this city over the likes of Sarajevo and Tirana for instance. Crazy. Well maybe I’ll leave the best for the last. Reply waitinginthedark February 22, 2012 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! Reply Brian Jannsen January 19, 2012 Don’t you just love Rome…? Great shots Simon – this is one of my favorite cities too. Reply Anya October 11, 2011 Great photos! I just wrote a post about Rome and uploaded images of the same landmarks, but it’s interesting how the same sites can look different in pictures taken from a different angle! Reply Enda Ginting October 10, 2011 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.. Reply Cam October 10, 2011 Looks outstanding! We hope to get there next summer Reply John October 9, 2011 Sadly, I have never visited Rome, but would love to wonder around Roman ruins or visit Keats’ grave. Oh, and enjoy being in Italy. There is now country quite like it. Reply Jeff Titelius October 8, 2011 Gorgeous photos of one of my most favorite cities in the world dear Simon!! I especially love your Temple of Castor and Pollux and the contrasting tones of the stone columns and trees behind. It’s Magnificent! Reply Jeremy Branham October 7, 2011 Beautiful photos of Rome. It’s been many years since I have been there but there is some fantastic history here! Reply Andrea October 7, 2011 I love Rome too, especially the history (and the food of course!). Reply Jenna October 7, 2011 Gorgeous photos, Simon. Makes me wish I were there right now! Reply Carol October 7, 2011 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. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
