As I said in the earlier post on Rome- it is an eternal city! There is so much to see and know. The guide provided by the package tour was quite good enough to open as many windows to the city of Rome in that short time, I mean a day and a half, that includes Vatican City too. Well, I do not have some glamourous night shots of this fancy city! I visited during the bright day light though I have seen the city in the night with some monuments decorated with lights, well from a moving bus!
When moving on the roads and streets in between the ancient building you get a feeling of being in an ancient place where moderners live! The cars, gelato shops, outlets of world popular great brands and jeans clad tourists! Here is a medieval fountain surrounded by modern day cars!
The river Tiber flows right in the heart of the city! Third longest and an important river in Italy.
Rome is one of the touristy cities and so there are many street performers! This one was one of the best! Dressed like a tree he was very graciously performing with the crystal ball! See the restaurant entrance? A huge bottle filled with wine corks!
Hand painted water color scenes from Italy.
The hordes of tourists!
And the ancient looking touristy trams for the tourists!
Well I didn't have pictures of food because I had much of grilled vegetables for most of the 3-course meals. Italians asked me ... "you don't eat meat, fish and cheese! Then what do you eat?!" And also I am not big fan of posting pictures of restaurant food unless it is for a restaurant review :)
Hope you enjoyed my version of Rome. How was your experience in the city?---
