Roma Urbs Mundi: Via Nazionale...

"To describe the emotions of the mind and the crowd of ideas that arise on entering this 'mistress of the world' is impossible. All is confusion and agitation. The eye moves rapidly from side to side, eager to grasp every object, but continually diverted by s ome new scene; all is wonder."

-Washington Irving (arrived in Rome in 1805)
