There are different ways to play in Rome. One day or three days is fine. One week or one month is fine. There is only one conclusion, no matter how long you stay, Rome will never finish. This city exuding a deep historical atmosphere tells stories inadvertently through every building, every square, and every piece of land through the streets and lanes, endless and endless. Every step I take, I see a culture of thousands of years. Religion adds a layer of unpredictable and awesome mystery.
Rome, there is no abolition.
Rome is undoubtedly hot. The days when I went violently in Rome reminded me of the only heatstroke in the Longmen Grottoes. The scorching sun without any shelter made the ground sour and oily, and the heat waves from the wind added fuel to the fire, leaving people nowhere to hide. Rather, Rome is also used to walk. Only by walking can you see the essence of Rome. Only by walking can you experience the depth of Rome. Only by walking can you feel the rise and fall of Rome.
The most classic monument in Rome is the Colosseum. This representative building of Rome's heyday 2,000 years ago and the Great Wall are one of the seven wonders of the world. Gladiators are here to fight for honor and life. Standing on the top floor of the Colosseum overlooking the audience, the blood of the past made me shudder.
In Roman mythology, a female wolf rescued a pair of twin brothers in Palatine Hill and raised them with her milk. The twins were Romulus and his brother Remus, who later built the city and the Roman Empire. Ascend Palatine Hill, overlooking the ruins of the ancient Roman Forum, dreaming of the prosperity of Rome in the past, dominating the rivers and lakes. At this time, the scorching sun was on the cusp, and he was physically exhausted. The wheat is sweating like rain, and he still does not forget to sigh: Rome is really not built in a day, nor is it finished in a day!
Roman Forum (Forum)
The core of ancient Rome's religion, politics, culture and commerce, and the center of the powerful Roman Empire. In this largest "open-air museum" in Rome, people watching the flowers can only see a piece of ruins, but those who have done their homework in advance can see all kinds of doorways. God rewards hard work!
The tallest and smallest among the seven hills of ancient Rome. Piazza del Campidoglio on the top of the mountain was once the political and religious center of ancient Rome. At the request of the Pope, Michelangelo rebuilt the square in the 16th century. Climbing from the wide big steps to the top of the mountain platform, the new face of Roman revival can be seen in full view, with the historical ruins of the Roman Forum set off behind it. The sharp contrast between the old and the new perfectly presents the evolution of civilization and the change of society in the visual.
Victor Emmanuel Monument
The monument made of pure white marble pays tribute to Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy. The 43-foot-tall king statue in the center of the monument is also one of the largest knight sculptures in the world. This oversized building looks like a giant wedding cake. Although visiting the monument is a serious matter, it is really difficult to get rid of the imagination of the delicious big cake.
An important representative building in the ancient Roman period, and an object that architects competed to imitate during the Renaissance period. It is said that the Pope of Rome in the 17th century demolished the gilded bronze plate of the dome of the Pantheon to cover the cannon of the main altar of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican and the cannon of the Castel Sant’Angelo. The Romans were worried about this. Later, by repairing the cemetery of King Vittorio Emanuele II, a cannon from Castel Sant’Angelo was used as a decoration for the cemetery, which was a relief and a sigh of relief.
Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verita)
It is said that the mouth of truth can recognize lies, and if you are a liar, you will be swallowed by putting your hand in. In "Roman Holiday", Hepburn has a long white dress, and his face faded after reaching out into the mouth of truth, which is also a classic in the movie. Originally planned to imitate the superstar, even the white shirts were ready, but when we arrived at the mouth of truth, it was too late and was stopped by General Iron, and we had no choice but to sigh.
