“stepping into the pages of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

surreal. breathtaking. incredible. words can't quite describe the feeling of walking around the ancient city of rome. it's as if one foot is in the past, and your other foot is in the present -- a roman aquaduct juts out of nowhere as you walk down a sidewalk, kids playing football on the grounds of a roman castle. amazing juxtapositions of old and new have made me realize why rome is indeed the eternal city.

“Its like walking through a dream.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Its all there all those monuments you have seen countless times on TV. I soaked up the atmosphere and copied the locals, sitting on cafe terrasses and watching the world go by. You are essentially in a living museum with some of the greatest architecture in the world as a backdrop.

“2400 years of history packed in a couple of miles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Colosseum, Roman Forum, Temple of Romulus, Senate Garden, Mussolini's Palace, Pallazzo Vittorio Emanuel, and the 7 hills of Rome, the Pantheon, St. Peter's Cathedral, have between them a territory that covers almost all the history of modern civilization.
