19 Photos Of Rome That Will Make You Fall In Love

The eternal city.

That’s quite a reputation to live up to, right? No pressure, Rome. You continue doing that “best and most historical city in the world thing” you got going on. No biggie!

Between the piazzas, the sprawling terraces, the dramatic fountains, and, oh, just 2000 years of history, Rome has plenty to keep first, second, and hundreth-timers plenty busy. If you factor in the time you’ll spend finding your way in the maze that are Roman alleys, and also the gelatos you’ll inevitably get as a reward for indeed, making your way back to your next destination, you could spend a lifetime in the eternal city (see what I did there?) and still not manage to fully grap it.

Welcome to Rome!

Admittedly, I was only in Rome for a short 48 hours as a weekend getaway from London. You know how it is with the European low-cost airlines, eh! Even though I’m well aware I only scratched the surface of the eight world wonder that is Rome, I left the city with a feeling of having accomplished something.

I freaking saw the Colosseum for God’s sake! If that’s not on your bucket list, then I don’t know what is.

    No tourist itinerary in Europe will be complete without Rome- Rome is a monument of ancient times, a treasury chest filled with invaluable history sites. I adore to get lost in the shadowy narrow streets forming a living labirynth into the heart of Rome.

    I visited Italy on a weekend back in 2008. Your photgraphs took me back. I loved Rome…. We had a peculiar way of literally taking in every beutiful site…my friend and me would find a nice table and drink the local beer, enjoying a lttle bit with each sip. I have dropped a coin over my shoulder in the trevi fountain; hoping to go back again some day.
    Coincidently I have named my daughter “Roma” way back in 1997. – Vidyanand Mandpe, Pune, India

    I loved your Fontana in Piazza San Pietro. Thank you for all the work it took to put this site together.. I enjoyed it very much. I have been to Rome several times and , yes, it would take many years of staying in Rome to experience half of it. Your pictures of Rome reminded me of a quote I love: “To know Italy (you could substitute ‘Rome’) is to discover her soul and fortunately that takes a lifetime”.

      Thanks Alwyn! I agree; there is not enough of a lifetime to enjoy Italy or Rome.
