  1. Such a thorough overview of this magnificent city, Len. I have never been to Rome but of course know that I have to put that right someday. You have presented the city’s dense history and characteristic quirks with aplomb. Great photography as always, I think my favourite image here is the sunset over the Colosseum.

    1. Many thanks, Leighton! I had luck with that photo 🙂 It was the only sunset that I could watch during my stay in Rome. For the rest of my trip, there was either downpours or cloudy sky.

  2. Wow, what a comprehensive introduction to the antiquities in Rome. You were far more conscientious in your exploration of them than we were.
    Magnificent photos of the Colosseum.

    1. Thank you, Alison! I tried to focus on one period, rather than seeing all the famous sites in one go. I foolishly did that on my first trip and nearly got a mental breakdown. The crowd in Rome shouldn’t be underestimated 🙂 But not every site is full of people. I think they only go to a few specific places, leaving the rest untouched. For example, I counted only 10-20 visitors in the Baths of Diocletian.

  3. Rome is one of those places that despite their popularity, for good reasons, I really want to see with my own eyes. So much history, and so many beautiful buildings! This post is a great summary of among the city’s must-visit sites. I think if I have the time, I can easily spend two weeks there and still not see many things the city has to offer.

    1. Indeed. The city itself is a museum 🙂 Even on the outskirts of Rome, there is something worth seeing. Luckily, not every place in Rome is overrun by tourists.

  4. Rome has so many amazing site and looks like you were able to see quite a few. You gave us great descriptions of the long history of the empires as well as the buidlings. Maggie
