Rome, Italy

Rome is the first (and thus far, only) city that I have visited that I would recommend to every single person I know. It seemed as if some stranger knew all of my most secret desires, and designed a city to fulfill them. It enthralled me at every turn; I'm not sure a lifetime spent in Rome would be enough time. Mouth-watering food of all varieties is enough to satisfy even the pickiest palette. Architecture spanning the entirety of the human race makes you feel like a time-traveler, simultaneously headed to the future and the past. A friendly and embracing culture and people that love to laugh, smile, hug. History enough for an entire library of books. Top it all off with the mind-boggling wealth, influence and archives of the Vatican; and you have Rome. A city that cannot be competed with; A city that will always leaving you wanting more.
