In Pictures: Roma (Agosto 1997)

Since picking up my Italian passport last week I’ve been reminiscing on the time I’ve spent in Italy.  When my father and I went to Italy in 1997, we managed to spend a day skimming through Roma.  I say “skimming” because it is virtually impossible to see all of Roma in a day.  Although our time there was really brief, it left a lasting impression and the coin I tossed into the Fontana di Trevi still beckons for me.

Here are some pictures, taken by my father, that will always hold wonderful memories of our time together in the “Eternal City”.
