This is it. This is the two weeks of year when the weather is absolutely perfect and the air is full of possibility. Spring in Rome. Everything in Rome has turned green again, and while the pollen is wrecking havoc on allergies, the blooms...

Exploring Underground Rome with Rome is Easy  Posted on 05/10/2015
Whenever we have visitors, I direct them to stop by Basilica San Clemente after their trip to the Colosseum. It is incredible, I tell them. 2000 years of history in one building. An ornate church from the Middle Ages, built on top of...
