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.
