I love Italy and also England. This is the best of both worlds. It was so beautiful and peaceful. I really felt connected to Keats, Shelley and Byron. The books and the interior are so nice to see.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most

Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
