Rome. Roma. The Eternal City. Capital of the World. Threshold of the Apostles. The center of Western civilization. The seat of the Catholic Church. It is modern and cosmopolitan, it is Renaissance and Baroque, and it is very, very ancient. It is a city where men look as if they were born in an Armani suit and women in 4 inch heels. Rome.
We had 2 days in Rome. Two exhausting days that started at sunrise to capture the morning light and ended late at night with a belly full of Rome's best cuisine. Zipping around the cobblestone streets on vespas during the day, I had all the Palazzos, Piazzas, Parcos and pizza I could handle. Rome was a city of images and sounds, and all were vivid and all very, very unforgettable.
