There are a few MAJOR things in Rome – a couple rather well-known buildings, a fountain or two, some stairs, a few relatively famous painted ceilings. But that is not what this post is about.
One of the things that I like to notice when I wander through new places is the little details that make this space special, unique, or strange.
Here were a few of those details that most delighted me about Rome.
The first Roman citizens I met were pigeons, who were completely unfazed by humans. I had to get a glam shot of one for my bestie, who has strong feelings about these flying beasts. In the Vatican museums, you spend most of your time looking up, because the walls and ceilings are lined with exquisite and important art, but I have to say that the Vatican flooring was pretty great as well! I love peeking around corners and down little alleys because the entire city is filled with the most beautiful surprises. And ALL the scooters and motorcycles. I am pretty sure my dad would not make it down most of these streets, as there are just too many pretty bikes to check out. While I don’t have the kindest things to say about Rome’s subway system, as it is more than a bit filthy, but I think it makes for cool pics. I was completely mesmerized by this spray-paint street artist. Within a few minutes, he was able to create stunning pieces of art. AND he lit things on fire. What more could you ask for? xo
