(This is the first of three parts of our Italy trip.)
Rome (Roma, in Italian), as the capital city of Italy, has many memorable histories of Roman Empire and Roman Catholic Church. Being the 11th most visited city in the world, third most in the European Union, the city is very crowded. It claims to be the country’s largest city. Luckily, most attractive sightseeing area seems to be within walking distance — to tourists anyway. We walked around in the city for all four days. Although exhausted, it’s very rewarding. The city is old and there are not many modern high-rise buildings. The relics of the historic sites make it look even older. There are already many web sites talking about Rome. So say no more, here are the photos. (image count: 101)
