Eternally in Love with the Eternal City

“She had always been fond of history, and in Rome there was history in the stones of the street and the atoms of the sunshine.” – Henry James

Rome, aptly named the Eternal City, is home to many magnificent pieces of ancient architecture and it’s history spans over 28 centuries. As a history major, who completed my final year dissertation on the Italian Risorgimento, I was a state of complete historical awe for the entire duration of my trip. 

On every street the old and the new harmoniously dwell with one another, serving as a constant reminder of the city’s spectacular ancient past. Each time you visit one of the city’s numerous landmarks, it appears to be equally as impressive as the last. Nevertheless, I’ve narrowed my favourites of which down to the following:

The Colosseum

The Pantheon

Vatican City

… I guess you could say that I’m eternally in love with the Eternal City.
