If i could travel to one place in the entire world, it would have been Rome. And I went, and now I cannot wait to go back. It was everything I hoped it could ahve been and more. So much history, so rich and deep (literally a few meters under modern Rome is ancient Rome) And the city is swarming with architecture, history, life, and amazing food. Venice was also beautiful, but in a very different way. Very few people actually live in Venice anymore. Its all one big museum and one big tourist attraction. It is like a Disney wild that was real, but isn’t anymore. It wonderful and strange.
Truly a marvel
If a building were to ever be perfect, it would be the Pantheon
Public drinking fountain. SPQR is the motto of Rome – “The Senate and the People of Rome” and it is everywhere!
Baroque church off of
Museum built with Mussolini’s fascist ideals
Main gae of mediaeval Rome, opening up to the piazza de popolo
Exterior of the MAXXI museum
Zaha Interior, truly breathtaking
We got dinner one evening in the piazza di rotonda.
a side aisle dome of St Peters
Those statues over the arch were enormous!
This is the Vatican Museum. This museum os basically a 2 hour line to get into the Sistine Chapel. But while you are waiting in line you look at rare artworks such as this.
Beautiful night to be on the canal.
Total decoration form floor to ceiling. The wealth of Venice.
Classmates enjoying the fire from the Venetian palace. for those with a fine eye, it looks strangely similar to the Gardner Museum.
Can you imagine that being your front door?
Typical Venetian street. Completely surreal
View form the road up to Villa Rotunda by Palladio. What an amazing house.
