I think I may have been a bit premature when declaring Paris the most beautiful city on earth. Like Paris, Rome has beautiful architecture, and a distinct grandiose feel to it.
For me, the tiebreaker goes to the people of Rome. The Italian girls have moved to the top of my 'most beautiful' list and everyone seems full of life and they love to smile.
To put them over the top, I think I would move to Italy for the food alone.
Early in the morning we lined up for Vatican City. Even at 7:30 A.M. there was already a long line. Getting into the Vatican is a bit like an airport, you are required to go through security checkpoints.
The highlight of Vatican City is Michaelangelo's Sistine Chapel, but there are over 30 other impressively painted rooms as well.
Rome has countless plazas and monuments to check out and the 2 days we spent there wasn't nearly enough time.
My favorite site was the Colosseum, and taking the tour to learn about the history behind it is definitely worth it.
They say all roads lead to Rome and after seeing this incredible city I can see why.
