Eternal city of Rome:

Eternal city of Rome

Slide 2:

For two milleniums Rome has been the centre of western civilisation and culture, now it’s a home for two million people, but millions more come to visit making the city one of top touristic destinations.

Slide 3:

One of the biggest things that mark the city is most certainly colloseum which was built in ancient Rome.

Slide 5:

Massimo Siragusa has lived in Rome for 20 years. ‘’Colloseum has got great significance in Rome. For me this building represents all the mileniums city has survived’’ – says Massimo.

Slide 6:

The best way to explore Rome’s historic landmarks is probably on foot. It takes just a few minutes from colloseum to the Forum Romanum, once the political centre of ancient Rome.

Slide 8:

The main reason why rome is called eternal are these baroque buildings.

Slide 12:

‘’When you have a view from a higher point, you can really admire the city and all its glory. Especially in the evening…It’s spectacular! There’s no other city that can offer such magical sunsets’’ - comments Massimo.

Slide 13:

Romans themselves like to drive scooters, which are perfectly suited for little streets and aleys.

Slide 14:

Another fact about Rome is that it holds Vatican, the smallest independent country in the world. Thousands of roman catholics come here every year. That’s a great place for a photographer like Massimo.

Slide 17:

But Rome is also famous for its food, a restaurant or espresso bar is never far away.
