I Didn’t Find Romance at the Spanish Steps in Rome But I Did Find John Keat’s House

City Skyline: View of the Vatican from the Top of St Peter Basilica

If you’re like me who like to see city skylines, then we could travel together. The view of the Vatican from the top of St Peter Basilica is surreal. You won’t just be able to see the city-state itself but it goes farther beyond Rome. You won’t be able to see skyscrapers like the ones […]
