When In Rome

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about Rome over the last few days because of the news that a new archeological site will be opening in the coming year in the heart of the Eternal City. If you haven’t heard, the sunken square at Largo di Argentina, which is closed to the public, but home to hundreds of feral cats, is undergoing a €1 million renovation providing access to the place of Julius Caesar’s assassination for the first time in more than a century.

Of course this lead me down the internet rabbit hole until I happen to stumble upon the fabulous video below. The timelapse and hyperlapse film is the work of Russian photographer Kirill Neiezhmakov. If you have ever visited Rome, it will leave you longing  to return, and if you’ve never been,  A Gift from Rome will have you pricing flights.

    It does have me wondering why I’ve never been! 🙂 🙂

    • It’s always amazing, but sometimes challenging. The last time I was in Rome, I stayed a small hotel that had it’s breakfast room in a basement that doubled as an archeological site.

  2. I watched the video over and over and each time it just seems to get better. Amazing visual of Rome!
