I still remember, after travelling across few sun deprived countries in winters for almost 3 weeks, when I landed in Rome I knew this is the place where I want to come again and again.

I have been to Rome twice and I am sure I will go there again.

Rome is a mix of Art, Culture, Architecture, History and amazing vibes.

The more time you spend there, more you want to stay.

Listing few of the must visit places while in Rome ( but trust me, I never get enough of Rome ), the vibes it gave me are so magnetic :)

This is an oval shaped ampitheatre in mail city of Rome, also the largest ampitheatre ever built.
