Rome, The Eternal City

People say they have bucket lists. Well, if you are one of them and would like to add a single City in the world to visit before you…khe-khe…, do yourself a solid and pencil-in Rome. Italians call Rome the eternal City. Indeed, Rome’s history is truly eternal. One cannot simply recite it in any single book, movie or story, no matter how authentic book authors, movie directors, and story tellers try to be. The Rome of today seems like the Rome that existed centuries ago. In 2016, it still feels and looks as genuine as we historically know it to be. Old stone castles, medieval churches, Domes, marble stairs, iron gates, ancient ruins, crooked cobble streets, and even laundry hanging from peoples’ windows. Rome is real and is preserved in the bubble of time.
