Rome

You can’t escape history in Rome – thousands of years of history unfolds throughout the city

I thought I knew everything when I came to Rome, but I soon found I had everything to learn. 

Edmonia Lewis

 

I found Rome a city of bricks and left it a city of marble.

Augustus

 

From the dome of St. Peter’s one can see every notable object in Rome… He can see a panorama that is varied, extensive, beautiful to the eye, and more illustrious in history than any other in Europe.

Mark Twain

 

 

She had always been fond of history, and here [in Rome] was history in the stones of the street and the atoms of the sunshine. 

Henry James

 

In Rome the statues, in Paris the paintings, and in Prague the buildings suggest that pleasure can be an education. 

Caleb Crain, (Necessary Errors)

 

Yes, I have finally arrived to this Capital of the World! I now see all the dreams of my youth coming to life… Only in Rome is it possible to understand Rome.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (German writer 1749-1832)
