60 Years On: A Modern Take on Roman Holiday

I’m afraid I haven’t been able to write an article this week, but as you can see, I’ve been in Rome! So for this post, I thought I would show you some pictures from my trip; and to make it even more interesting, I have put a sampling of the filming locations from Roman Holiday side by side with my own photographs. As you can see, nothing’s really changed for the city of Rome; what was standing 2,000 years ago was standing 60 years ago, and still stands today.

  1. Great pictures! I was in Rome earlier this year too, and I absolutely fell in love with it. Plus, when in Rome, I also couldn’t help noticing loads of tourists vendors selling Roman Holiday calendars, postcards etc. I think most people still associate Rome with Roman Holiday, it’s such a classic! As compared to modern Hollywood films set in Rome (e.g. When In Rome, To Rome with Love) which comes across as really cliche.
