Favorite thing: Public fountains lie all over the city in Rome, and just like other cities in Europe, there are mementoes, plaques, and markers detailing the famous personages who lived in the neighborhood, a poet who took apartments nearby, or a painter who stubbed his toe on the underlying cobblestones. All the neat things about Europe and particularly Rome are not always the soaring public edifices or the expansive ruins, but the little things that decorate countless street corners.
