Cool shots there Manuel!
Rome reminds me of London ; way too many cars and way too much street clutter thankfully however it isnt full of crap 60s buildings like London!
Any pics of Palazzo della CiviltÓ Italiana and/or Catacombs?

Agree with the clutter, but I felt the traffic was even more annoying especially noise wise!
No 60's crap and even some rather nice neoclassical buildings of the XXth century.
I Didnt go to the E.U.R this time, maybe next time I'm in Rome as I loved the place!

Roma is really wonderful, no words to describe the Queen City.... It could be even more beautiful without that mess and negligence... What a shame.

Great pics anyway!

Well yes London has catacombs scattered across the city but they are nothing like Paris' or Romes and most of them are not open to the public :

Camden Catacombs :

http://www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/s...bs/index.shtml

West Norwood Cemetery Catacombs.You can visit them but you need to call the cemetery and ask for a tour first :

The same with Venice, but how you can tell a young modern italian, much more american or japanese than italian, that he should not express his fake, ridicolous hip-hop tags culture on the walls of Rome or Venice?

Maybe our problem is that we lack a serious cultural policy?

Why a lot of young citizens of Rome, Florence and Venice dream about contemporary London, Amsterdam or Berlin? Now the only italian city that really fits with modernity without being violated in some ways is Milan. But that's because: it was destroyed! gaah:

Rome is a highly unusual city. Chaotic, historic, beautiful and gritty all in one shot! Stunning photos, thank you for sharing!
