Walk with the Romans

 

Let’s start our walk with the Romans in, where else… Roma.

 

Now that you have decided a trip to the Italian peninsula to walk with the Romans is in your future, it’s time to choose the places you want to see.  It may seem like that would be an easy thing to do.  Not so much!  There are just so many  sights and not enough time for you to see everything.

Why Rome?  To keep it simple, it’s where it all began for the Roman Empire.  This is where the foundations of law, art and culture for future western civilizations were laid.

 

To simplify it even more, Rome is an amazing living history lesson.  The old city lets you walk with the Romans of past centuries along the via they once did.  In doing so, you also become part of that history.

With that said, you need to start somewhere.  Roma, The Eternal City,  is a great place to begin your adventure.  Rome is a must see if you think this may be your only trip to Italy. Skipping  Roma is like skipping the African elephants while on safari in Kenya.  Sure you saw the rhinos, lions and hippos but, you’ll have missed the big one.  Trust me, you’ll kick yourself later.

Florence – Our Tale of Two Cities

The View from the Giotto's (Bell) Tower
The Duomo in Firenze

 

Unlike Charles Dickens’ 1859 novel “A Tale of Two Cities”, our tale of two cities is technically the same place, Florence.  Hang in there folks, it’ll make sense soon…

 

Florence for us is really two cities.  Florence of 2011 and Florence of 2015.  I’ll stop talking in riddles now and fill you in on the details.
