Today post it’s about a city on seven hills, Rome.
Italy is a very beautiful country and Rome was on my list of cities to visit. There is so much history, great architecture from ancient, medieval to baroque styles (such a delightful for the eyes) and delicious food.
I flew in February from Romania (Iasi) to Rome with Blue Air (European low-cost airline company) and in 2 hours I was in The Eternal City. Even though, was February the weather was so great, so sunny and warm.
