Can’t make it to Rome on a plane? That’s okay. Take my hand.
Let’s go back in time together.
Rome is truly the Eternal City, and for such a spectacular place, we’re going to need a sound track.
Do you trust me?
Heh. Well, then.
Andiamo. Let’s go!
Transport yourself to an earlier time. A simpler time, with simple songs about Roman guitars and a longing for a beautiful and ancient city.
Carlo Buti, often called the Bing Crosby of Italy, recorded over 1500 songs in a career that spanned the first half of the 20th century.
This is the kind of stuff my parents and grandparents listened to while cooking up some pretty awesome Italian food.
The music has a special meaning for me, and I think it will help us settle into the comforts and beauty of timeless Rome.
Like a melody from another time, let the music take you back.
Rome’s vitality and its morbid sense of time.
San Luigi di Francese
Piazza del Popolo
The “Plaza of the People”, where we heard a little anachronistic Queen music playing in front of these dark and foreboding twin cathedrals.
The Colosseum – Flavian’s Amphitheatre
The Vatican and its surroundings
A sunset to say goodbye to Rome.
And we’re back in our own time again.
