First visit: July 2000
Places visited: Rome, Milan, Bologna, Florence, Venice, Vatican City
Having lived in Rome for seven years between 2000 and 2007, I consider myself a very lucky person. Not only was I able to experience the Italian culture and learn to speak the language but most importantly, I got to live as a local in the city they call "La Città Eterna", enjoying great cuisine and visiting tourist attractions whenever I want to among other things. Unfortunately, I lost most of my photos while visiting the Vatican City and other cities like Milan and Florence so I really have to be back to Italy again and update this post. In the meantime, here are some of my travel tips when visiting Rome.
In case you are visiting Venice, here is the link.
