For our last favorite category, I thought my Jean-Claude would choose Mallorca. Funny how no one has chosen that yet!! But my baby chose the Spanish steps in Rome, and Gigi agrees. Rome would be a wonderfully romantic place for Gigi and Jean-Claude to walk around in hand-in-hand. Then again, any place would be romantic with him.
Gigi went to Rome many years ago, but it would be so much better to explore it with Jean-Claude. There are so many places she’d want to go with him. They would start with the Spanish steps, since that was his choice to begin with… Gigi’s Norwegian man is as adventuresome as she is, and he wants to make love on the Spanish steps… mmmmm. Ok!! I’m in… I’m sure Rome would approve of that… When in Rome, do as the Romans do, and are they not a romantic race?
There is so much more they would do together… visit the fountain of Trevi, where they will throw coins in asking to come back to Rome again. Of course, here’s hoping they would get to sightsee a lot… knowing Gigi and Jean-Claude, they’d probably spent most of their time in a sleazy hotel, have cheap wine, pasta and a lot of sex!! Lots and lots of naughty sex. Come on, let’s be real… people who are nuts about each other do that a lot!!
Gigi would love to explore all the beautiful monuments and ruins that make Rome the wonderful city it is… cameras out, being tourists, enjoying being together in such a romantic surrounding? That simply sounds like heaven to Gigi.
Although Gigi spent a few days in Rome many years ago, she googled more facts about it for you to read… LOVE Google!!
What could be more attractive than spending your hard-earned holiday in Rome? Rome has been called many names through the ages such as the eternal city, and the city of the seven hills, but no name could capture Rome’s actual grandeur and splendor such as the romance in its actual name does. Being one of the few cities to have survived the devastating damage of World War II, Rome has many attractions dating to as early as the Ancient Roman times and Renaissance to as late as our modern times. This not only makes the city a top destination for everyone; whether you are a history aficionado or an urban pleasure seeker.
Destinations in Rome can be divided according to your choice in eras, activities, or simply areas of interest. If you’re into Art, museums and the Vatican City would be an excellent option, who would waste a chance to see Michael Angelo’s ceiling in the Sistine Chapel? For those more into politics, the Fascist residue might be of interest; many attractions hold documents, photos, and books in relation to the Fascist regime that changed our world forever. Those passionate about theology can experience a first hand meeting with monks and clergy men, not to mention; visit Rome’s various theological attractions from the Pantheon, to Medieval Basilicas, to modern theological institutions. As for music lovers, Rome is one of the most musically diverse cities, with musicians playing on the streets and shows every night, styles that range from pop, rock, and classic. From ancient times, theater has been one of the strengths of Rome, operas and plays are still a big part of life in Rome and there are weekly showings in local theaters.
Rome, the “Eternal City” is the capital of Italy. Could a capital of such a wonderful country could be any different than the country itself? Well, it is not. When visiting Rome, prepare to enter the world’s greatest open air museum. In this city, there’s something worth seeing on every street. Here are some historical and Catholic monuments that you should not miss once you get in the city of Seven Hills.
Along Via dei Fori Imperiali, when going towards Piazza Venezia, on your right you can see the Roman Forum. Although the route is served by several bus lines, it is recommended to walk if you are willing, to see the ruins of what used to be the most powerful government in the world. One ticket for the Colosseum, the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum costs around 14 Euros. Plan at least 4-5 hours if you’re willing to see them all.
