ABSTRACT
This article presents information on Rome. The author observes that Rome is, by its very endurance, a museum of time's transformations. Rome has had a long time to accumulate anomalies. For 26 centuries, it has been the capital of a state or a church. On the Roman traffic the author feels that it is much better than New York. Feet are probably the best means of transport, although Rome as a city is sprawling. The author informs that cabs cannot be hailed, and the subway system goes nowhere in particular. St. Peter's is the biggest church in the world and the Gothic cathedrals in Rome inspire awe.
