Vintage Rome: Eternal city {summer 2010 travels}

03 Aug

My first post after  couple months without blogging. Well, am back in the zone. What’s good? what’s new?  It’s summer time which means lots of stuff going on. This year am spending my summer holidays in Europe.   Last weekend, i visited Rome for the second time. First time i didn’t do much because i was in town for only couple hrs. This time i had the whole weekend. sort of.    I must say, Rome is a special place; full of stories. It’s the mother of civilization as we know it today, and home to humans for at least 10,000 years, the city of Rome (aka Caput Mundi, the Capital of the World) really is the center of it all when it comes to history, culture, and the arts. And it makes an awful nice place to visit!.Evident by the present rich historic buildings and so on.

The picture below:

{cited from wikipedia:–>The Colosseum or Roman Coliseum, originally the Flavian Amphitheatre (LatinAmphitheatrum FlaviumItalian Anfiteatro Flavio orColosseo), is an elliptical amphitheatre in the center of the city of RomeItaly, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire. It is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering.}

It feels good to walk down the history lane understanding how things came by. I didn’t tour the entire city but with the little i saw made it an epic weekend. Here are some of the  pictures i took. I will add more later in “special blog entries” section. Check back soon.

The Trevi Fountain( google it to learn more..a very famous Fountain)
