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. :)
