I suppose there are other things to see in Rome besides food, huh? Rome is a very old city with tons of ruins and old buildings everywhere you go. Every street has that old-world beauty to it, and the city is loaded with historical buildings and ruins. Behold some of the sights!
Check out these lovely stone-paved streets. Some of them are VERY narrow!
As you may have noticed, Italians dig their scooters and itty bitty Smart Cars…
This is the Trevi Fountain, which was undergoing routine maintenance during my visit. This happens often in Rome. Tons of foot traffic means that upkeep of these ancient wonders is a never-ending necessity!
What is a trip to Rome without a visit the Roman Colosseum, or il colosseo?
The ancient Roman Forum is right nearby. It’s basically a whole neighborhood of ruins.
Another super famous sight in Rome is the Pantheon (not to be confused with the Parthenon, which is in Greece…hmmmm).
The big, wide, beautiful Spanish Steps!
The humongous ancient Roman capitol building
How could you NOT be inspired by all that?!
