Incredible photos there man and Rome is elegant as ever.

great shots all!
Rome is coined as Eternal City because for one, it never changes physically.
it's like an ancient wine that ages through years, decades and centuries
and becomes the pricesless of the priceless.
I wish I can visit this city again.

Nice. I see palms in some photos. I imagine that Rome is too cold for palm trees.

As a Dutchy i can't say it was particularly cool in Rome haha. Don't know what the winters
are like overthere, but we had temperatures in between 32 and 40 celcius that week...

But thanks everyone
