Rome / Roma

When in Rome, gelato is abundant and traffic rules are non-existent. You feel as if you’ve stepped into a parallel dimension where laid-back life, and hustle and bustle harmoniously co-exist . Romans are charismatic and love their city.Β Β I have never been to a city that values aesthetic appeal so much. The old buildings all painted in a cohesive colour palette make for a visual paradise. It feels like walking on a rather massive, exceptionally beautiful movie set.Β Β To say that Rome is beautiful would be an understatement.Β 

The weather was really hot when we were in Rome, and it was such a pleasure to escape what has been a rather harsh winter in Cape Town.Β 

Italian gelato is amazing. On just about every corner, you will find a gelateria – some are high-end, and others are little family shops – each with their own unique charm. I thoroughly enjoyed every spoonful!Β

I think its safe to say that Rome is a cultural and historical masterpiece.
