Well done STS!

I have visited Rome and it truely is one of the greatest cities on the planet.

When I saw the Roman ruins up front, I couldnt believe the scale of the ruins and also how many things survived.

Well done and hopefully we'll see more.

Roma is indeed the most amazing city in the world. Since my brother lives in Roma I am very often there and everytime I discover new beautiful things.
...But unfortunately the city doesn't have enought money to solve its problems. Roma is getting really dirty and most of the buildings need a renovation. Berlusconi should give Roma a higher buget to save all builing for the future.
