We don’t take a photograph, we keep a memory forever.
As a young child, as a teenager, and as an adult, my love of Rome has never changed. I visited Rome often growing up and have returned several times as an adult. My mother was from Rome, and I was fortunate enough to develop a close relationship with my Italian family. I lived my life there as a native and made so many wonderful memories.
Once, I walked with my cousin, Paolo, from my nonno’s (grandfather’s) apartment to the Colosseum which was miles away. We stopped and bought some gelato and enjoyed it immensely. Would you believe he’d never been to the Colosseum before? Neither had my mother or the rest of the family. It’s considered a tourist attraction.
If you want to see Rome the way it should be seen, I encourage you to stay in a Bed and Breakfast, get a good map, rent a car or take a taxi and explore the Eternal City on your own. Most Italians speak English and I never met one who wasn’t eager to help. Ciao!
