What’s not to like about Rome? I smell fresh watermelon sold on the streets in summer, feel the strain on my legs from climbing the Spanish Steps and the overwhelming be-wonderment from staring at the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling. The culture of Rome and the Vatican is almost too much to handle. Little wonder then that my sister Renate stared at the Colosseum when she was still at school and said “now I understand the saying Rome Was Not Built in One Day!”.
My coins are in the Trevi Fountains and I am longing for a return visit. Rome always has something to discover and I hope to be there again soon.
The picture above of St Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world, is from a friend’s recent trip to Rome. Thanks Reverend Doctor Brian Lee.
