7 Reasons not to visit Rome!

7 Reasons not to visit Rome, is a photo post on the beauty of Rome. I have read so many bad reviews on Rome and the monuments of this city and I cannot quite understand it. True there is caos, public transport is often down and never on time, however, there is no denying that Rome is the most beautiful cities in the world.

The following is a mash up of the negative reviews online. From those complaining as to why the Vatican is still around, to ‘how overrated’ Italian food was, that they preferred eating fast food!

 1. So you are visiting Rome & suddenly you find yourself in two countries at once? Annoying!
