Rome is always on my mind. It’s a great choice for the next post in our series of places in the world to explore. What would you do with one day in Rome?
Rome won’t win any contests for most beautiful, most cosmopolitan. While rich in history, there are other cities around the world that have stronger reputations for historical context. Rome is what you make of it. But, it’s a shame to consider it only as the gateway to the rest of an incredible country. Rome is meant to be lived, not toured with a guide pointing out landmarks. It is better experiencing what she has to offer over the course of time.
Finding a restaurant off the beaten path is, for some, like finding a nugget of gold. That’s what Enoteca Cul de Sac was for us when we discovered it ten years ago. Though it’s popularity has risen, it’s still approachable and if you’re lucky, you should be able to walk up and grab a table to enjoy a glass of wine with some cheese to end a day of sightseeing in Rome.
Angels & Demons, by Dan Brown, is a book that saw massive popularity upon its release. While the movie didn’t add anything for me, walking through Rome and exploring the landmarks make the story come to life. Take a walk with us as we enjoy a quick visual exploration of the “path of illumination”.
