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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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..

    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!

    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.

      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!

    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 ;-)

    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.

    Really lovely photos! 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 :)

      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!
