Rome, An Ancient City

It’s still quite unbelievable the layers of history, architecture, and culture imbedded in the city and I have thoroughly been enjoying my “Rome as a Living Museum” class as we get to learn about and appreciate the sites and monuments by personally visiting them.

Some of the highlights so far:

The Colosseum, 72AD

Arch of Titus, 81AD

Vittoriano aka “The Wedding Cake Building”, 1884

The Capitoline Square

Trajan Markets, 112AD

Palazzo Venezia, 1455

With sites and monuments like this (and many more), it isn’t a surprise that learning about history here is certainly not boring!

I&#39;m currently studying Architecture and minoring in Urban and Regional Planning (which has me even more excited to study abroad in Rome with its rich architectural history). As a lover of art, food, and adventure, I look forward to delving into the dynamic Italian culture and sharing my experiences!</span></p>
