  1. Many people skip Santa Cecilia and visit the more famous Santa Maria in Trastevere, which is obviously worth a visit, but I think devoting an hour also to the lesser known basilica adds to the value of your visit. It might be the reason for you to come back to Rome 😉

  2. That’s some weird preferences of yours… Thankfully I haven’t seen any old man victim of slavery in front of 1000 degree oven in Garbatella, nor anywhere else in Rome 😉

  3. Hi Jessica, thanks for stopping by! Gorgeous indeed, should you come to Rome, don’t miss them!

  4. Definitely, Rome is full of surprises and it’s lovely to dig them up little by little 😉

  5. Fascinating isn’t it? I too get over-excited when it comes to our ancient past!

  6. True, dinner and narghilé outside in the summer is a great combination 😉
