Trip Over to Rome – Italy

The Eternal City

The Eternal City founded by Romulus, after he murdered his twin brother when they couldn’t agree on the location – this also solved the problem of what to call it….

Steeped in history, it is a living museum, during the course of each day in Rome you are walking through thousands of years of architecture, and looking at thousands of years of art works. Modern day Romans are friendly and relaxed, and oh so fashionable. Central Rome is a very easy walking city with most of the must sees all within a very small area, but there are many longer walks to be had and a very good bus and train system to get you quickly and easily to other areas. The small electric buses that fit easily in the very narrow Roman streets are great for sight seeing too, they go past most of the monuments. Catching one to where it is going then walking back is a great way to immerse yourself in Rome.
