"Wall inscriptions everywhere!" Rome Favorite Tip by Jenniflower

Rome General: 938 reviews and 1,081 photos

  Reading the walls...
by Jenniflower

Favorite thing: The walls tell stories.

No really, they do!

The amount of weathering they have undergone, how scarred they are, their discolouration, what is inscribed in them, what story the frieze or mural on them depicts, how rounded they are. How old.

Everywhere you will find snippets of information of times gone by by 'reading' the walls :)

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
