  1. Brilliant post! It’s good to see the Roman ancient heritage in various cities that are outside of Italy. After reading your blog, I feel as if I need to apply for Italy Tourist Visa and visit the beautiful country of Italy with my lovely wife. She always wanted to visit the Vatican and New Year might be the perfect time to explore its spell-binding attractions. We hope to have a great time in Italy and explore some nice Christmas markets if they remain open.
