Buon Compleanno, Roma! – Happy Birthday, Rome!
Today, April 21, Rome turns 2,769! Though today is Rome’s birthday, the celebrations won’t fully begin until tomorrow. The good news is that they last will all weekend long until Monday! Nevertheless, there is excitement in the air. Some of the locals say, “America does not have anything like this, I promise.” Though I am not sure what to fully expect, I have been assured that it will be epic beyond proportions!
This is more than just a mere city. This is the city that ruled the ancient known world. This is the city that was the home of great emperors. This is the city of the arts. This is the city that has the basilicas. This is the city that is the home of the Colosseum. This is ROMA!
