An itinerary of 4 days here's a map with all the places to visit, don't miss them! Rome anyway will show you each time a new thing, because it is a place to discover and to visit again and again.
Sometimes I feel to wait a couple of weeks before to have a look at my shoots. I think about the pictures on the roll, at the photographer and at the printing time. I loved to go to the photographer to get back the printed pictures and look at them after a while I have taken them, that while you need to absorb and stay on your own with your memories and emotions.
Now it happens to me the same when I'm writing in the blog.
It barely happens to me to publish something suddenly after or in the same moment I have lived it. I post when it happens, when I get some inspiration or I am looking at the pictures and I am like to share them.
I know I am a little old fashioned because the Social tell us that the value is in the here and now, but for me it's not true. I have moment in which I want and in which I don't want to write and I don't want to write obliged by the fact that if something is past is not even more important or interesting. I didn't decide to be a journalist and I don't like my blog to be the place of the "news of the day". I know that for some informations (events, money) is important to have the right timing, but not always.
So, not to get you bored and with a bit of delay in this post I will tell about May and my experience in Rome.
After I've been there lot of times I come back there for 4 days of holidays and for the first time flying from another country.
I traveled to Italy as Italian expat.
I will not give you indications about where to sleep and eat (I wrote something on Tripadvisor) also because I know that there are already plenty of precious advices about Rome where to eat and sleep. What it really matters is to visit the city itself.
I will tell you about a photography of Rome,
publishing also some pics I have taken.
Have a good reading.
A lovely jasmine's aroma along the streets where the leaning and a bit scraped chalks colored walls make picturesque the houses with flowers at the balconies.
Here I am, walking on irregular cobbles.
Reaching a tavern you can have good food and wine.
It's not even a great effort of imagination to feel the Ancient Rome and the magnificent civilization that was so great.
Walking in the nature, under the maritime pines, you can discover step by step a new path, a new story, the History and the Art.
The water is a protagonist: Tevere river, fountains, the holy water fonts in plenty of churches and in S.Pietro Basilica, the one where you can most literally breath the magnificence.
The park, the sun, the stunning views.
Eating an ice cream standing at the sun and enjoying the spring, feeling the time relaxing and you with it, while the caos disappears in front of the beauty.
Finding yourself smile while watching at the gulls, a Vespa is passing by while an artist is playing the guitar and you can just sigh.
Plenty of talented artist are playing an instrument, singing, dancing, making you laugh, performing with the people all around them as audience and the square as stage.
The hills and the panoramic view of the city, the sunset, the happy hours, the dinner in a slow rythtm.
It's hard to say but yes, there's also a bad side of Rome when someone is rude in the traffic, against the tourists and with the people or doesn't respect the rules.
That's annoying but still Rome stay there, a city that have so much to give and certainly have given to me, again.
