Rome is a beau­ti­ful city that boasts an ar­chi­tec­tural mag­nif­i­cence like no other ( Ro­man Hol­i­day, Jun 10). My fam­ily and I spent a week there last year and had the most won­der­ful time. The beauty of the city lies in be­ing able to see all of its iconic sights on foot. As we took pic­tures at the Colos­seum, we could pic­ture the Glad­i­a­tor movie in our heads, mar­vel­ling that those events could’ve hap­pened where we were stand­ing, so many years ago.

A funny in­ci­dent that took place was when I tried to check out an amaz­ing build­ing called the ‘ Pi­azza Tri­bunali’. I was stopped by the guards, and tried to tell them that I was a tourist and just wanted to look at it in­side. He kept re­fus­ing in Ital­ian and fi­nally said, “No! Supreme Court!” We had a good laugh.
