Rome Review

According to Roman mythology, Rome was founded around 753 BC. There are many myths pertaining to the foundation of Rome, one myth in particular stands out the most, the story of Romulus and Remus. The twins who suckled from a she-wolf and decided to build a city, after bickering about something, Romulus killed Remus and named the city after his name, Rome.

Rome is a prominent or probably most prominent city in the world, it is the capital city of Italy and was given the nicknames “The Eternal City and Capital of the World.”

Weather Conditions:

If people have the ability to manipulate the weather, then nothing good will ever come. People differ from each other about what flavor of weather they want, some want sunny and windy, while others prefer it to be gloomy and rainy. The main idea is, the times you feel like the weather favors your mood, at the same time it is against someone’s day.

Rome experiences cool winters and warm to hot summers since they have a Subtropical Mediterranean climate. Temperature during summer from June to September can reach up to 31.3 °C (88.3°F). Winter starts in December and ends in February, it can be pretty cold but the temperature rarely reaches sub-zero. The lowest temperature is 3.7 °C (38.7°F) and can chill you to the bones.

Most travelers visit Rome during the High season (June to August, meaning summer) warm to hot temperature and chances of rainfall is very low. This time of year is ideal for sightseeing and roaming around the city.

Tourist Attractions:

If you travel to Rome, then you are going to have a great time visiting the amazing infrastructure, landmarks and historical sites.

The Colosseum

Built in 70-80 AD by Vespasian to honor Emperor Titus, the Colosseum also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre is the biggest ever. If you hear the word Colosseum, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Some might say Gladiators or maybe Gods, during the ancient times gladiator shows took place in this very arena in front of hundreds of people and royalties. I think travelers would love to have a photo of themselves in the middle of the battlefield.

The Colosseum, is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire. It is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering. Occupying a site just east of the Roman Forum, its construction started in 72 AD under the emperor Vespasian and was completed in 80 AD under Titus. Capable of seating 50,000 spectators, the Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coloseum

Pantheon

The famous roman temple that has a beautiful view from all angles. The outside of the temple is beautiful and the same goes for the inside, the wide dome holding pieces of history together. The latin words written on the Pantheon is “M·AGRIPPA·L·F·COS·TERTIVM·FECIT,” this translated to ‘Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, Consul for the third time, built this.” Looks like he doesn’t want anybody to forget what he did, a usual mentality from people during the ancient times, all they care about is legacy.

Festa di Santa Francesca Romana

Ever heard of the patron saint of drivers, Saint Frances of Rome? The order of Oblate de Santa Francesca was founded in 1433 by a noble woman named Francesca Bussi de’Leoni who would travel around to visit the poor and tend to their sickness. Every year on March 9th, Catholic drivers would drive their cars or other vehicles to the Monastero Oblate de Santa Francesca Romana to be blessed.
