    AFAR Ambassador @zachspassport took us through Rome, the second stop on his whirlwind tour of Europe, presented by @lufthansa_usa. “The view from Rome’s Castel Sant’Angelo looks equally good at sunrise and sunset. It’s the best vantage point for views of the Vatican and the Tiber River with the Ponte Sant’Angelo. We all have those places we enjoy returning to as travelers, and in Rome, this is one of mine.”

    9. A Door to the City
    Rome has so many blockbuster attractions, but it’s worth keeping an eye out for the everyday flourishes. I found myself captivated by an intricately carved door, a crumbling pastel facade, the mismatching alignment of shutters, the marble signage, and well-worn cobblestones.”—takeover by @zachspassport presented by @lufthansa_usa

    We followed AFAR Ambassador @zachspassport on his Roman adventure, presented by @lufthansa_usa. “Certain Roman specialties like cacio e pepe and hearty carbonara are year-round staples at restaurants such as La Fiaschetta. But Roman cuisine is still largely rooted in seasonal ingredients, which, in fall, include chestnuts, cauliflower, potatoes, squash, eggplant, and figs.”
