Why I love Rome

If you follow me on Instagram then you'll notice I've going through a bit of a Rome meltdown this week. I found all my photos from Rome and it made me reminiscent from when I was there a year ago. I fell in love with the city (admittedly not straight away) and wanted to explain why.

The history, it's everywhere
Rome is a city that thrives off of it's past which becomes very apparent when you walk through the centre. There are ruins and monuments quite literally everywhere. This is probably down to me being a roman archaeology student but I was like a little kid in a sweet shop, running to get as close as allowed to the ruins. Even if you're not into the history, standing in front of the ruins makes one heck a (if not cliche) profile picture.

The buildings are so colourful
Being born in Britain, it's all a tad white washed (so sensible). I guess it's the climate but everything in Rome is so colourful, just look at buildings in this picture (I love it so much that it's my background). The most colourful house in my area is blue but that's because it has been abandoned for about 50 years. There's just something about colour that really brightens your day, you really feel like you've entered a different world.

It works
I get that I was only there for a week but we stayed by termini station and the transport was on point. Yes, Rome is not as busy as London but there was no bitchy tube strikes or anything like that ruining people's lives. Everyone got to where they needed to go without a problem.

Also, with all the walking you do / steps you climb, your ass will be as solid as a brick!
