I believe that everybody sees Rome in a particular, different way. You cannot describe it as a whole because Rome manages to get inside your soul and reflect its beauty in a special way for each person. That is a feeling I have never felt in any other city I have visited before.
One thing that I believe astonishes everybody is the mix of ages combined into one single city – antique, medieval and modern. All under ‘one roof’, let’s say. You get to see how people were entertained in the Colloseum 2000 years ago, and in 5 minutes reach medieval churches which reflect the Renaissance, admiring impressive works of Michelangelo, Bernini and Donatello and afterwards enjoy a nice film in an open-air cinema in the Villa Borghese Gardens.
Scores of fountains all over the city enrich the beauty of the small piazzas. Hundreds of small ristorantes invite you to taste one of the best cuisines in the world – I personally believe there is no way you can enter an Italian restaurant and not find something you may like. Thousands of vespas pack Italy’s capital city, cleverly making their way among the confused tourists.
The ‘Eternal city’ represented to me a place which has to offer something for each individual. It offers romance, it offers art and culture, history, it offers a great cuisine, luxurious shopping areas, neighbourhoods for workers and also entertainment clubs for those who are in search of fun.
