ROME | by Freki

I went to Rome ealier this month.. a really nice city with lots of awesome buildings, tons of history and a horrible traffic problem..

All in all a great place I will highly recommend, just leave the car at home and expect to lose a few weeks of your life to polution when walking the streets

Enough talk, it's picture time







































































































































































































That's all folks

Awesome tour pics , much appreciated ! But it is better put the signature smaller on the pics or ... no signature, possible ? and sincerely hope to enjoy your more tour pics , NY , Hawaii , Cape Town , Tel Aviv , Beijing etc ...

Thanks mate, legally there's no need for a signature, but we all know how much hotlinking is going on and as I can't stop it I can atleast make it harder to claim them in other's names or misuse them othervise..

I am well aware that the sig is neither nice to look at or very descreet, but I like to have it there for various reasons and it's not going anywhere anytime soon..

It takes up roughly 5% and I have placed it in the corner where I felt it did the less "damage" to the motive.. I hope you can forgive me

It's like an orgy for my eyes.

I'm finally going to make the architect's pilgrimmage later this year. Can't wait!

Rome is the cream of the crop. There is no greater urban success story than Rome. The history, the architecture, the culture, the iconicity, the romance, the vibrant street scenes, the beauty; it's a remarkable place.

Looks like the area right by Torre Argentina. I stayed just down the street from this area.

Nice photos.
