Things to do, eat, drink, photograph while in Rome

Updated: Sep 26, 2020

I've been lucky enough to travel to Rome during a land group tour. There is something surreal about walking inside the Colosseum and the Vatican. Rome is full of history.

Rome has been a major cultural center since ancient times, which reflects in its famous monuments that stand tall till date. The Colosseum (70-80 AD), for example, was built by the Roman Empire was used for the mighty gladiatorial combats. The culture of this place refers to its rich history of arts, architecture, fashion, music, and cuisine. The famous fashion and jewelry brands find their place in Rome.

The city is home to several operas and musical institutions and is well-known for its delicious cuisine, which mainly consists of meat, cheese, and vegetables. Rome has a vast collection of art, dating back to the Roman Empire.
