Rome, capital of Italy, is a large cosmopolitan city with an artistic, architectural and cultural history that has influenced the whole world and dates back to almost 3000 years ago. The ancient ruins such as the Forum and the Colosseum testify to the power of the ancient Roman Empire. In the Vatican City, home to the Catholic Church, are St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums, which house masterpieces such as the Sistine Chapel frescoed by Michelangelo.

Ingresso della Basilica minore di San Camillo de Lellis a Roma
Situata nel cuore del quartiere Sallustiano, la chiesa fu fortemente voluta da Papa Pio X, grande devoto dell'infermiere cui è dedicata.
Inserita nell'ultimo piano urbanistico del quartiere, la struttura fu ultimata a inizi '900 su disegno dell'architetto Passarelli, stesso ideatore della vicina Chiesa di Santa Teresa D'Avila in Corso D'Italia con la quale condivide lo stile neoromanico-lombardo e la struttura interna.
Differentemente da quest'ultima la Chiesa di San Camillo presenta numerosi elementi decorativi di influenza gotica, definiti su marmo di Tivoli.

Last year in Rome on a wonderful 40°C day. I have been especially wishing I was back in Italy this week after a Netflix binge on Monty Don’s Italian Gardens. New life goal: own a Renaissance Garden. #wewokeupinitaly
Despite the onslaught of budget airlines in Europe, many people's favorite way to travel is still by rail. Life and even vacation goes by pretty quickly these days, but on a train from Milan to Amsterdam you have no choice but to slow down and soak in the world around you. If you are considering riding the rails this year but haven't decided, here are pros and cons to help guide you along. 🚞
1️⃣ Rail travel is slower and more romantic; it gives you a closer look at the countries you are visiting and forces you to take your time and enjoy the journey for travel's sake.
2️⃣ Many train stations are located in the very center of the European city, a big advantage over airports which are often over an hour away from the central area.
3️⃣ Train travel is better for the environment than air travel
4️⃣ On trains you are more likely to be encounter and engage locals, not just foreign travelers.
5️⃣ The rail system in Europe is vast and efficient, getting you to a huge number of locales in a quick time.
6️⃣ Traveling by train, you avoid the security delays that often arise at airports.
1️⃣ Traveling long distances by train (Paris to Venice, for example) can be very time-consuming and costly. Overnight cabins are expensive and will not be the best sleep of your life.
2️⃣ The European rail system may be confusing to the tourists.
In some areas of Europe (like the Loire Valley, for example) the train just doesn't go where you want to go. Rent a car.
3️⃣ In some cases, air travel can be cheaper and definitely faster than rail travel.
So what is your favourite way to travel?
