Lonely Planet writer Duncan Garwood describes why he loves Rome. "As much as its obvious beauty, what I love about Rome are its details: the cobbled lanes and hidden corners, the towering pine trees and vivid colours, the aroma of freshly ground coffee wafting out of cafes. the city's streets and piazzaz are an endless source of entertainment to me, even after almost two decades of living here, and I still get a kick out of seeing places I read about as a schoolkid. I'm also a big fan of roman cuisine, and there's little I love more than a long lunch at a favourite trattoria."
