When and where did you last travel?
Six months ago, I embarked on a time-traveling journey to Rome. The city is a vast, open-air museum with spectacular attractions and archaeological sites. I explored everything from the Colosseum and the Roman Forum to the catacombs, the Pantheon, and the Crypt of the Capuchins for four days. I was also enchanted by the majestic artworks inside the churches, particularly Santa Maria de la Vittoria Church and Archbasilica of Saint John Lateran. Rome’s picturesque squares and fountains, such as Piazza Navona and the Fountain of the Four Rivers, were among my favorites. My visit even included the breathtaking Vatican and Saint Peter’s Basilica. Yet, there is still much to see, promising a definite return to this eternal city.
