Rome

August 2003. My first and only venture to Italy, this city has almost to much to offer for the tourist with its historical buildings and monuments. Despite being heavily tourist-laden and over-photographed, it was still very enjoyable and to offset the uncomfortable heat, the fountains are wonderful cold and refreshing retreats.
