Rome is the city of echoes, the city of illusions, and the city of yearning.~ Giotto di Bondone
Roma, is the most astonishing city in the world, and trust me, I’m not just saying that. Roma is so many things in one. Its an open air history museum, its a perfect cultural centre, its the capital of Italy, and for me its the place dearest to my heart after my country, Puerto Rico.
Whenever we get a chance, my boyfriend and I escape to Italy, and we always find an excuse to go to Roma! The second you see the city for the first time, you understand how amazingly important it is to the history of humankind and the significance it has always had throughout our existence. I can imagine it is an archaeologists dream to encounter such a place!
I love Roma because the minute I get there I get this comfortable, calming feeling that here is where I belong. I realised that I want to spend my post retirement days there pretty quickly. It is chaos, and it is calm, it is destruction, and it is elegance, you just need to find the right places. Let Roma unravel itself and show you all there is to experience in it. All the way from the Colosseo to the Vatican, and from the Fontana di Trevi to Piazza del Popolo, this city astonishes you every single corner you look.
I never get tired of exploring this gorgeous city, and I’m lucky enough to have Roman friends that showed me around the city my very first visit there, and showed me the most breathtaking places, where I have taken my boyfriend afterwards during our visits!
As they say, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, and that’s the approach I take on it. What I mean is that Roma is not a city you only visit once, because it has so much to offer that it would be impossible to experience it all in one go, so I plan to keep visiting and letting myself embody the dolce far niente lifestyle like a true Italian until I get to move there!!
If you’re ever in Italy, don’t miss the opportunity to go to Roma and see it for yourself! Only then you’ll understand what I’m talking about! Ciao belli! baci
Until next time,
