Rome, the Eternal City – one of our civilizations great metropolis, old as hell and beautiful beyond. This city should be taken slowly – sit at the cafe and observe, have a long lunch and a slow dinner. If you try to see everything in one visit, you’ll miss the point and will likely fail, leaving unsettled and with a bland taste. And don’t just plan on going once in your life, go to Rome as many times as you can using every an any opportunity to visit, even for a day – or a week. Use that opportunity to do something new and enjoy something you’ve done before. Pick a cafe and becoming a regular or better yet, make a Roman friend.
