My brother and sister-in-law just got back from Rome, and they totally fell in love with it. I wasn't a fan when I first went there years ago. I was young and cute and getting harassed by men in a place where I didn't speak the language, and I found it a bit traumatic. I should give it a second try now that I'm older and less likely to have that happen (or to let it get to me if it did, which is more to say, "I pity the person who might mess with this crone" ).
