“Rome is synonymous with history,” Neiezhmakov wrote on a YouTube post. “Where else can you walk in the same footsteps as the Caesars St. Peter, the Popes, Michelangelo, Dante, and Raphael to name a few?”
And it’s perfect to explore by foot.
“The real charm of Rome is that you can easily walk to most sites,” Neiezhmakov said of Italy’s largest city, which he referred to as Europe’s largest open-air museum.
Take a look at the video, shot using two Canon 60D DSLR cameras and a Canon 70D, as you wind through the city’s cobbled streets and glorious piazzas, all while taking in famed landmarks like the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and the Sistine Chapel.
