All roads lead to Rome

All roads lead to Rome, so the story goes. And a lot of stories Rome has! Words truly can't describe this ancient city, which was built on thousands of years of mythology, bloodshed, heroes, villains, crazy eccentric rulers and inventors to what today is one of the most visited cities in the world. All I can say is WOW.
Time is not enough, we only have two nights stay in Rome, and we have a few places must go: The Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Vatican City, St. Peter´s Square, The Colosseum...So many places, Rome is big, but our time is so limited.
I think no trip to Rome would be complete without seeing Trevi Fountain-a magnificent fountain with lots of very huge, expressive sculptures lying about on it. I enjoyed tossing our coins into the water over our shoulders to insure our return to Rome. But the place is so crowded. In fact everywhere in Italy is so crowed. I hate crowds, they make me cranky. I feel like I am lost in this ancient city. I am lost in the culture, I am lost in the history, I am lost in the crowds.
