“Rome was certainly not built in one day!”

“Rome was certainly not built in one day” came to my mind when I visited the city. The kind of grandeur in architecture and richness in culture it has, is definitely a result of centuries put together.

We both like driving, however, this trip became quite an experience. So after an interesting 15 hours drive from Heidelberg to Rome, we were excited to see that Rome was just a few miles away then.

After checking in a hotel and dreaming the whole night about this city, the next morning we started our city tour. This imperial city never stops to fascinate its visitors. We started to explore the city with a nice walking-tour.

There are so many things that one could re-connect with while on the city tour of Rome. It takes you to the flashbacks of the movies watched and articles read, leaves one completely mesmerised by its magnificence.

It is believed that if one throws a penny in this pond, at the Trevi Fountain, one will have a chance to revisit the city. I am still waiting for the same.

A scoop of gelato from the surrounding Gelateria adds flavour to the sweet experience at the fountain.

Colosseum, or the elliptical Amphitheatre, completely built in 80AD is the iconic symbol of the Roman grandeur.

I only have to say that even a lifetime is too less to explore the whole city of Rome.
