Rome, Italy: "The Ancient City." Famous for its history and incredible architecture, Rome is one of the coolest places I've visited. It is located in the central area of the Italian peninsula. It is the country's largest and most populated city, as it is home to over 2.7 million people and is about 500 square miles. I was fortunate enough to visit this beautiful city in December of 2008.
Wandering around Rome was a blast. Although I loved it, I'm not sure it's a place I'd like to go again. I will probably go once when I have a family of my own, but it's one of those places that I don't see changing anytime soon so I feel like I've seen it all already. It's definitely a place everyone should visit once in their life though, especially if you're into history and art!
