Welcome / Benvenuti

Welcome to my site, Know Rome.

The purpose of this site is to provide information about the city of Rome to travelers, students/researchers and Rome enthusiasts. Weekly posts will look at things to do when in Rome, current goings-on in the city, a look at important monuments and sites, and anything else that I think might be of interest.

In the coming days, I will populate the site with links and other important resources that I think that you might find useful. One of the reasons that I created this blog is that I know there are many people out there that are afraid to go to Italy. They may have heard things about Rome that are more urban legend than truth. I would like to dispel some of those myths and encourage people to get to Rome. As I always say, everyone should go to Rome at least once.

I want this blog to teach and to inspire. I hope that when you visit my blog you will learn something new about the the Eternal City.
