Eternal City


















Here I am, hitting the roads again. I am enjoying the last days of summer in the amazing city, where every corner, every building is full of history. I realized that you can`t just visit Rome for a week or so. That's why I will come back and stay here for some time. There are so many things to discover here!!!
