Before last May, I’d never been to Rome.
Please don’t look at me like that — I know. I’m a travel writer who had never been to Rome. There should be some sort of law.
The important thing here is that I’ve now visited Italy’s capital city for a whole three days, filling my eyes (and my belly) with the glory of a great empire. Oh, and walking in and out of a lot of amazing stuff that’s free of charge.
