Rome Day Two
I am in love with this city, I don't know how to say it any other way. Rome has the charm of a big city like Washington D.C. or even New York City, yet the historic backbone of Pompeii. I feel like every time I turn the corner I inadvertently spot another beautiful monument or otherwise historically significant sight. Yesterday alone we visited the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Capitoline museum + Capitol Hill, along with all the Roman Forums. Not only did we get to spend the day wandering around monuments but for lunch we all had delicious panini and then a traditional five-course Italian dinner. Everyday I spend here I fall in love a little more. I feel like I understand a little more the history of Rome and how that influences their current culture. And this is precisely why I LOVE Academic Travel. It allows you to experience things I never would have along with spend time and get to know people you might never have otherwise.
