This is a beautiful old door I passed on a dream trip to Rome (2006) that I never thought would ever happen. Each region and city of Italy that I visited was beautiful in its own way. My trip to Rome though was extra special. This is where I was able to add on days at the beginning of my trip (before actually joining the tour). This gave me extra time to explore more in-depth this wonderful city and to make sure to see the sites that I absolutely did not want to miss.
It was here that I learned what ‘Rome was not made in a day’ really means. Whether you are hitting the tourist hot spots such as the Pantheon, Coliseum, or just enjoying a cup of cappuccino, so much of ancient history is still very visible almost everywhere you look. I could not believe that not only could I see the road where Caeser’s chariots drove, but that they were not roped off and I could actually stand where ancient rulers had.
While there I was treated to great music everywhere on the streets, in restaurants, and all around while I also learned how to properly drink and enjoy wine, which is a big deal for someone who doesn’t really drink much at all. So my appreciation of good wine starts here and I still think of Italy with each glass of white wine especially. If you ever get to visit Rome, don’t forget to toss a coin in the baroque Trevi Fountain, so as legend has it, you will hopefully get to visit the eternal city of Rome again. ~
