Sightseeing in Rome, Italy

Italy has often been described as many different things. The country of love and romance, of fashion and art, and of course, the country of food! Italy is many things to many people, and for me it will always be known as the country of love. Rome, the capital of Italy, is one of the first places my husband and I went on holiday together.
