Wandering through Italy

I walked the cobblestone streets trying to keep my mouth from dropping. I don't know if I've ever wandered around a place for so many hours in such a short period of time. Every corner revealed something new, the walls held layers of chipping paint peeling away to show decades and centuries of it's secrets. The Colosseum and the Vatican are impressive and should be visited, but I was most taken by the people, the tiny alley ways, and the bubbling excitement of piazzas.
