I guess that most people who visit Italy also get to see Rome at some stage of their stay. I had the good fortune to visit twice, once in '98 and the second in '01' and flew in and out from Fumicino aiport on both occasions.
Being interested in how the ancient Romans lived, including what they lived in, i.e. the ancient ruins, Rome has it all for me. While I stayed about an hour out of the city, I probably had all up about 9 or 10 day trips in and have walked from one end (just about) to the other. You would think that I would know it pretty well but really I think that another 10 trips wouldn't go astray and I would love to spend at least one night right in the city to experience the night life that I have heard so much about.
When I figure out how to put up some photo's, I will do that but meanwhile just know that it met and meets all of my expectations of a fantastic time.
When in Rome you need to do the same thing that everyone else does...........visit all of the ancient monuments......right? The Arch of Constantine for one.
The museum in what you might call the town centre ......... up Michelangelo's stairs and to the right of the horse and rider (someone else will know the name) has some really interesting sculptures, paintings and artifacts inside but in 1998 they were doing some work and this head just popped up.
Bill (Gazetteer of Rome) just told me that this is the head of Constantine and that the museums are called Capitoline and that they are on Capitoline hill. Thank you Bill.
