Rome - general thoughts

I enjoyed our visit to Rome more than I anticipated. I enjoyed the historical aspect of the sites more than I anticipated. You could spend a lot of time in Rome, but if you are looking for a chill vacation, I don’t know if this is somewhere where you would want to spend too much time and in addition, it all just gets so overwhelming that it is hard to take it all in and really absorb it.

Last year, Jim and I started watching the HBO series, Rome. I was not originally interested in watching this series, it looked too historically based for me, but I quickly got sucked in. After visiting Rome, I want to watch the first season of the series all over again and I can’t wait for the second season to begin. If you have not watched this series, I highly recommend it whether you are planning a trip to Rome or not.
