Pictures of Rome, Capri and Sorrento, Italy

Rome | The Eternal City

What can you say about the Eternal City? It was all that we had dreamed and hoped for and more! I can’t help but compare our great country to others whenever I visit abroad. It seems that we do not value history as much as others do. We tend to want to tear down rather than lifting up old buildings once they’ve reached their ‘prime’. I appreciate their propensity to value what’s been passed down along to them.

We got to visit so many places in Rome…..the Piazza Navona….a shopper’s haven, the Vatican (where we enjoyed the historic Scavi Tour), St. Peter’s Square, The tomb of the unknown soldier, the Coliseum, & the Trevi fountain, among others. We decided to take a day trip to Naples, Capri, and Sorrento. We only got to pass through Naples on the way to Capri via motorboat to see the world famous Blue Grotto. Capri and Sorrento (known for its delicately inlaid furniture) were spectacular. I had never seen water so blue, so crystal clear in all of my life. I could definitely get used to living there.

    It looks like you had a beautiful trip. I have been out of commission for the better part of a year, but am looking forward to getting out there and doing some extensive travel. I am a photographer and hope to get some great photos. I do agree with you about how other country seem to value and respect what has come before them, including their elderly. I was not a history buff as a young person, but find that I am older I crave to know more and more of my family history as well as the history of this world. Now of course that is a great deal to catch up with, but I am steadily working on it. Continue to enjoy travel.

    Thanks for sharing

    Yes, we did…thanks! I get what you are saying that you weren't a history buff when you were younger. Neither was I! But, what a difference a couple of decades make! I absolutely love it now. lol I'm sorry to hear that you were sick….and I can't wait to hear of your travels in the near future. Don't give up that dream….stay encouraged! There's a big whole world out there waiting for YOU to see it! Good luck!

    What can you say about Rome? Very true, everything is so beautiful and authentic. With so much history to take in, I don’t think I would want to come home 🙂

    That part of Italy around Naples… Sorrento, Capri, Procida, Ischia, Positano… it’s one of the most beautiful regions of Italy!
    Loved it and couldn’t get enough of it!
    So weird how the slumish wild Naples is in the middle of it… so wicked. While in Naples, beware of theft, mugging, stabbing and other stuff!
