For many visitors, the must-see landmark of Rome is the Colosseum.
Next to the Colosseum is the Roman Forum…
and the Palatine Hill.
Trevi Fountain is where people toss coins and say their wishes and pray on their way home that their wishes may one day come true….preferably immediately after the visit.
Italy is also a haven for foodies. Restaurants, coffee shops, small cafes are easy to find.
And if you’re in a run, you can always have food to go from food trucks like this one.
After satisfying your palates, you can visit a church to satisfy your spiritual needs.
Light your candles…
and say your prayers especially at St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican.
Your artistic self can delight in the paintings on the ceilings and walls on your way to the Sistine’s Chapel.
and exquisit marble floor…
and the fantastic stained glass windows.
Rome, especially, is also the city of monuments.
Some monuments are with intricate reliefs.
Voluptuous statues of women with curves are comfort to those with body size 8 and above.
With a small fee you can go to the top of Il Vittoriano, or The monument to King Victor Emanuel to get a 360º view of Rome.
Or you can stay at the terrace and get this view.
I went to Verona city to meet up with long time friends. The bonus is I got to see a fabulous photo exhibit of Robert Capa! Verona can be your base to go to nearby cities like Lake Largo and Venice.
An hour of train from Verona and I get to chill out in Venice. Life can’t get any better.
Yes it is possible to do a day tour by bus to visit Florence if time is tight and you are based in Rome during your business trip.
Last important impression of Rome is this one. The city presents an undeniable evidence that having a smart car is to smart park like this. Will be quite useful in Jakarta.
