Arriving in Rome (via Copenhagen) from Los Angeles was tre’ cool to say the least! I had been in Italy twice before, but had been “saving” Rome, since in my mind it deserves one’s FULL attention! This was to be the first of three visits I would make to the Eternal City while participating in my Study Abroad/Grand Tour trip, and it was all that the word AWESOME actually implies!  Here are some synonyms that Merriam-Webster dictionary lists for “awesome” – yep, I think they all apply!

“amazing, astonishing, astounding, marvelous, awful, eye-opening, fabulous, miraculous, portentous, prodigious, staggering, stunning, stupendous, sublime, surprising, wonderful, wondrous”

Wondering about going to Rome?  The answer is YES!!!!!  By the way, these are just the shots I have of visiting St. Peter’s Basilica; there are lots more spots all around Rome on CultureHoney.com!  Just do a sort by the site tag, “CultureHoney:  Rome!” and you will find them!
