The day I got my university acceptance letter I bought a ticket to Rome. Yes, my university was in Milan, but I couldn’t directly settle in the business Milan without first getting as much beauty inside me from Rome. I was so much in love with this city that I figured out if I found a boyfriend from Rome, I could as well spend my weekdays studying in Milan and having all the weekends in Rome. And I did… But it took me exactly 2 months to understand that Rome is a great city as a tourist but a nightmare if you live there. Traffic is crazy, there are tourists everywhere, and public transportation isn’t very reliable. I ended the relationship, not because of the city, but because at 18 I had commitment issues as you should at that age and now I limit myself to one visit per year and enjoy the beauty of Rome just as a tourist.
Rome The Old
The old part of Rome is actually all of Rome. And I could have just called it Rome, but you should know that there is also a new part of the city that was built in the 40s( that is considered pretty new if you consider the age of Rome). Scroll down for more.

Rome: The New
The EUR neighborhood of Rome was built for the 1942 World Fair by Mussolini, who wanted to celebrate 20 years of Fascism. He also had a square Colosseum built, today there you can find the Fendi headquarters. World War II came and the fair never happened, but the fascist architecture buildings are still there.
Rome: The religious
My visit to Rome this time was during Easter, so a visit to the Vatican was a must during these celebrations.
