While modern skylines have their appeal, I must admit that I prefer Rome's to skyscrapers any day. A visit to the Castel Sant'Angelo is worth it even if solely to capture this stunning skyline - arguably the best view of it anywhere in the city!
To read more about our visit to Rome and Campania, check out my thoughts on experiencing culture shock in Italy or read about my "admiration" for the efficiency of their public transportation system. Or if you want to see how I got egg on my face - or rather, pizza on the floor - in Pompeii, there's a little of that, too.
Have you seen Rome's skyline?
