Rome in Pictures – the Heavyweights

I found Rome too overwhelming to write about. Where does one start? A city so vast and full-packed of beautiful and historical things to see, how do you begin to showcase Rome?

I’ve decided to start with the heavyweights, the must-sees, the ones tourists don’t usually miss – in glorious pictures (one hopes). As always, click to enlarge the pictures (you can also navigate by pressing left and right after enlarging).

Now that I got those out of the way, I can later talk about Rome from different angles: Rome that you can’t see in pictures, the stars of Rome: St Peter, Michelangelo, Bernini. Oh and if you noticed, I have not included Vatican City. That’s a whole different beast.

I left home when I was 17 and never stop exploring the world since. Most days I'm a digital technician at one of the London's biggest visual effects studio. My alternate persona writes and travels and dreams of doing these as a living. I alternately call myself Indonesian or Australian whichever is more beneficial at the time, and I've been a Londoner since 2011.
